We notice in this simple Tibetan café a not necessarily hostile mixture of human beings and their cultural expressions from China and Tibet. The big flasks and at least one of the guests are clearly Chinese, while the lady with the impressive silver buckle is a typical traditionally dressed Tibetan woman. The flasks usually contain boiled hot water for Chinese green tea, but the café will definitely also serve Tibetan milk tea with Yak butter and salt. The poster on the wall is again clearly Chinese, while the picture of the Dalai Lama ………. is obviously absent.
