Tibetan horseman

Met this man at a festival in the tiny village of Mar, in Tibet. The highlight of the festival was a horse race, with dozens of  colourfully dressed riders taking part. Afterwards, everyone sat in a circle and drank butter tea. The words “butter” and “tea” together sound so nice, don’t they? But the taste is pretty rancid.
