NOV.29 (TUESDAY) While I'm experiencing 'KORA' Circumambulation Jokhang Temple at Barkhor street in LHASA, Tibet. I came across this kid playing balloons with her siblings while her parents doing some prayer chores. Not noticing I'm taking her picture, she just have an argument holding the balloon really tight NOT sharing it with other. Most tibetan have a dark reddish skin complexion with red cheek since they lived at high altitude area. Even though, the sun is very close to the ground it is freezing during winter.

Location: Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Xizang/Tibet, China
