While writing my weekly blog I came across these 2 photo’s which I thought would be nice to post on Valentine’s Day. The Tibetan drivers and the waitresses in Chengdu were keen to pose affectionately with their friend, luckily without the victory sign which is almost unavoidable when Tibetans and Chinese pose for pictures.

There is a large Tibetan population in Chengdu (Sichuan) who mainly live in the Tibetan quarter. Although it does not really have the Tibetan feel mainly because of the humid climate and the chinese environment it has been my first stop on many trips into Tibet, and my last stop before flying home from the Chengdu International airport. It is a good place for shopping, Tibetan food and also to find some modern Tibetan youngsters enjoying city live.
