Photographer's Note

Get on your bad motorscooter and ride!


This picture shows a cool farmer on his cool motorbike (kind of), it was shot in the center of Xiahe.


Xiahe is a town built around an enormous Tibetan monastery, I believe it's the biggest outside the actual province Tibet. Like so many places in China it has quadrupled both in size and in population over the last decade or so. Besides Tibetans, there are large populations of Han and muslim Chinese too. And the monastery is now firmly on China's tourist map.
