Maybe I should have explained this. In Tibet, candles used in monasteries are made from yak butter. These candles produce a very uh ... special and strong odor which you'll never forget afterwards. Often the monks offer you "yak butter tea" (Bo cha). As you probably already guessed, this salt tea (tastes more like soup) is also made from yak butter. Afterwards, when you're hungry, you can try a delicious (i'm not kidding!) yak steak. Best meat I ever tasted. And in the morning, your omelette will be prepared with ..?... :-)
The colors are wonderfully warm and earthy. I only know this scene from documentaries about Tibet unfortunately. Would like to visit this place so much myself. Here is a great Tibet gallery on pbase: http://www.pbase.com/orangecrush/tibet.
