Photographer's Note

On the Ganjia highlands between Qinghai and Gansu we met some muslim traders from Linxia who were buying wool from Tibetans. I posted some pictures of the transaction before, just click the location, there aren't too many pictures from it.

This is one of the Tibetans selling wool. The mask he wears is to protect him against dust, not really necessary here really, but essential when travelling on motorbike. I guess he just didn't bother to take it off. Why should he?

Good people everywhere you go. Our daughter was even invited to go and sit on one of the trader's horses.


The Ganjia grasslands are high level terrain that makes up the border between the provinces Gansu and Qinghai. We visited them with our driver from Xiahe.
