Tibetan life

An old woman and her grandson have buttered tea at a small restaurant in Bayi town, which is the political, economic and cultural center of Nyingchi, southeast of Tibet Autonomous Region. The old lady told that her life starts with a bowl of buttered tea. After breakfast, she will have a ritual walk to go praying around a hill with her grandson. In the afternoon, the two will have a tea break in the restaurant before going back home to prepare dinner for the family. It epitomizes the Tibetan life, which features buttered tea and worship of Buddha.
