Seven Days in Tibet – Photos from The Roof of The World:
After spending a few weeks in Nepal, and realizing how close I was to Tibet I figured "Well I came this far... I may as well make a trek across The Roof of The World". After 2 and a half weeks of waiting on a Chinese visa in to The Tibetan Autonomous Region, I was almost ready, but first I needed to suit up in a counterfeit North-face jacket and some solid gloves (in virtually every shop there was a Nepalese guy in the back room sewing a ream of "North Face" patches on to jackets and gloves). It was now December, and I was heading to one of the coldest places on Earth with a bag full of board shorts and sandals. At the border crossing in to Tibet we were thoroughly searched and reprieved of any materials mentioning The Dalai Lama.
