We kept going with our shopping and when we asked to pay, the guy of the shop showed us his camera, asking if he could take a pic to us! What we learnt: - In Tibet they don't have parks and don't use to hang out there. - Tibetans don't have a bar or restaurant with tables outside to enjoy sunny day.
