Photographer's Note

A figure (not sure if this is a tiger or sth?) in front of a building at the Ivolginski Datsan close to Ulan Ude in Western Siberia. We visited the datsan when staying in Ulan Ude for a day trip and it was a very nice experience. The mood was very relaxed and quitet and the monks were very nice to foreign visitors (not that there were many, in fact we were the only non-Russians). The datsan was quite a bit of a construction site, many new building were erected and lots of novice monks were building the houses (using only little tools and mostly their hands). For further infos please look at two of my previous postings from the datsan.
