Enlightened inside a Tibetan home

A window into a traditional Tibetan home in a rural village.  This was from one of my day trips out of Shangri-La and up into the front range of the Himalayas in the northern corner of Yunnan province.  Many of the people living in the small mountainside towns, farms and villages are ethnic Tibetan.  It was an honour to see some of their culture during a visit to this village.

It was interesting as this is a place that tour buses stop during day trips into the mountains so it is a tourist focused place but the people living there had a joy and vibrancy about them which stood apart from many similar locations.  I really enjoyed the couple of hours that I spent there.
