I went to Lhasa to see how the Chinese occupation has changed Tibet. I was moved by the reverence and inner strength of the people.  I thought if the Chinese can embrace Tibet, i.e. The Dalai Lama,  they will find the secret to longevity.

On the other hand, the amount of infrastructure being done by the Chinese to combat the consequences of Climate will save Tibet from certain ruin.

It occurred to me that the clash of two cultures here in Tibet is really a symbiotic dance for survival. One is in need of inner strength in the modern age of materialism, the other is in need of fundamental structural and financial strength in a time of ecological threat.
