Master’s Work Station

SYNOPSIS:  About two people at my guesthouse, and about a famous tangkha school in Lhasa.

My guesthouse is owned by Peggy, a Chinese woman and Tsirin, a Tibetan man, in partnership. She is the boss, I was told by Pansang, one of the busboys.  I guess there are tax advantages to a business when it is Chinese owned, as well as advantages in terms of ownership, when one of the partners is local.  Pansang is a “live-in” young man who does everything that is needed, from carrying luggage to washing dishes, or fixing the broken pipes at any time of the day.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
