On top of the world

Guess where I am! I bet you can't. The answer is Tibet. Well, it's not what China says is Tibet (here referred to as the Tibetan Autonomous Region or TAR) but the people here are vastly ethnic Tibetan, there's Tibetan on a lot of the signs, there are yaks everywhere, and big effing mountains. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

We're headed to have a tour of the city we're in, Zhongdian (also known in Tibetan as Gyelthang or in horrible tourist as Shangrila) but we'll be here three days and there's internet! So you can expect a full update soon.
