Tibetan kettle boiling, these things are awesome! with solar they can boil a gallon of water.

Visited a small Tibetan village outside of Xining China, a little taste of Tibet while waiting for the train to go to Lhasa. Bought train tickets with a "travel agent" who can purchase train tickets and supposedly pay off the officials to aviod the permit fee the government charges to go to Tibet (over $100). He brought me to his home to meet his family and son and see the temple and school.
