Going from Shigatse (3840 mts, 12.600 ft) to Shegar (4050 mts,13.300 ft), we stopped to have lunch at a restaurant besides the route
It was a typical one with good food, barley bread, yak & mutton meat, mix of vegetables and tea
Due to the high altitude of Tibet, the water boils at 90 degree Celsius, and cooking with water is impossible
Tea from China and local Tibetan tea leaves are boiled in soda water, milk is drunk fresh or made yogurt
What Tibetans eat
The people in the higher altitudes generally consume more meat than those of the lower regions, where a variety of vegetables is available. Rice is generally restricted in consumption to rich families, southern border farmers, and monks
I liked the great contrast between the faded or w/b TV screen and the plenty of color counter

attractive for our eyes the interior of the native restaurant at the 4050m.I like the well decoration of the place with the playing TV to be an other optical effect for the scene.

Su foto y sus notas describen los aspectos de las limitaciones de la vida cotidiana en la altura. Detalles y colores son interesantes y así hizo. Esta es una imagen de gran calidad y un excelente documento. Bravo.

Un fabuloso retrato, supondo que de madre e hijo, muy curioso entorno de la tienda, sorprende ese llamativo mostrador y la abundancia de color, indudablemente tipico ambiente de China, la TV contraste de modernidad.
Es un esplendido trabajo, con muy buena luminosidad y nitidez, para recrearse en curiosear tantos elementos como muestra la imagen, en cuanto a color me gusta mas la version del WS.
Pasa un buen dia.

There is really so much to see here:))! I like every single detail, from the bottles of Coke to the painted skeleton on the wall - they tell so much about this place! These painted panels with Chinese motives are just great! Good capture!

This place seems and must be very intresting. I like that always dominates the color and patterns. And I'd love to try everything from there.
Enjoy the evening,

a wonderful scene, full of information and interest. A greatly captured interior with superb lighting and sharpness that enable us to study the decoration, the products, the signs of daily habits. The lady and her little boy are discreet heroes but their glances are intense and a bit curious, I guess they reflect our glances while studying the photo. The tv screen is a superb element of the composition, especially as it's been captured with remarkable sharpness too. I love the natural colours and the way the light and shadows make the image so real. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Impressed with the decorated cabinet and counter, lovely colors. Also, nice faces expression of the mother and boy, looking directly at the camera.
Nice taken and story told about.

It's a unique moment to experiment Maria, altitude procures sensation, I like the decoration, authentic record, a dzo was installed on the upper right side, in Tibet people manage with the hard climate
