A Tibetan woman's intricately braided hair.

An informal continuation of yesterday's post of photos that didn't quite fit in and therefore deserved its own space.

Tibetan Women Braided Hair Mask Barkhor - Lhasa, Tibet - Daily Travel Photos

Hair braided with colored fabric.

The look on the woman's face (left) says it all. What's more suspicious to her than a photographer that appears Chinese (me) snapping photos of Tibetans doing the Barkhor circuit. I received many disdainful stares from the Tibetan population. Note to self: next time, wear a Korean flag t-shirt.
