How sad it is to see the Potala listed as a site in China.

China was clever to invade when the eyes of the world were concentrated elsewhere and it's been a fait accompli now for some time.

Still doesn't make it palatable. And those of you who have been to Tibet will know what I mean.

Do you know that most of Yunnan once was also Tibet? No wonder the people there do not look Chinese for the most part (in the north half). But it shows that over time, outsiders will forget. Probably in two more generations (or after the death of the Dalai Lama) people will forget or not care. I care.
