    Hey JTL, nice shot! I was actually there what seems like way too many years ago. I loved Tibet but hated the food.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    It's a shame what happened to Tibet and what's still happening. Now instead of destroying it, the Han are hell bent on exploiting it. At least thousands of people aren't being killed anymore. Why the world sat and watched these atrocities happen disgusts me...but that's what happens when there's no oil to divert, no ports to put a naval base in, no markets to develop, etc, etc. To the Han, though, Tibet had something they wanted very much...sparsely populated land.

    As far as the food goes, I live in New York City and we have several Tibetan restaurants, so I've tried the food prior to going. It brought new meaning to the word awful. But, at the place I stayed in Lhasa, "The House of Shambala", they had excellent Tibetan food. It is a small guest house right in the heart of the old city...and definetly not for everyone (the the bed is a wooden board, the meat market is on the corner). So, some Tibetans can actually cook!

    The yak butter tea did make me toss my cookies! It was very embarrassing. I was hanging out with some locals, one of whom spoke English and talking (very quietly) about whether the Dali Lama would be allowed to be buried in Tibet and whether a hand picked Chinese puppet would replace him...I took the customary three sips...and then spewed vomit all over the place!

    JTL - That's hilarious and pretty much the same thing that happened to me. To this day I can't even look at anything yak and the smell turns my stomach something terrible!

    I've traveled quite a bit and I've been appalled over and over at how entire nations can be abused and exploited. I guess this isn't the forum to start discussing in detail but suffice to say that I've seen enough to have lost most of my faith in the human race. What I have seen traveling is probably the biggest influence in my decision not to have any children. Hope that's not too glum for you all. Well, back to photography already!!

    Canon DSLR Photos Only...A Little Respect, Please

    I don't want to sound rude and/or exclusive....but...this is the CANON DSLR Picture of The Day Thread.

    There is a Nikon Picture of the day thread over in the Nikon DSLR Forum. You can find it here:

    http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25920

    That's where you should have posted the above shot. Or in the general Photo Gallery forum here:

    http://www.dcresource.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=43

    The reason that I'm bringing this up is there are a fair number of trollers who seem obsessed with crashing this forum. Not that I think you're one of them...but...please...try to respect the integrity of this thread and this forum. Thanks Dawg!
