China has invited the world to visit in August 2008. Exactly one year out, I've traveled to the heart of the nation that has brutally occupied my homeland for over 50 years. Follow this blog, as I share what I see, feel, and experience... leaving Beijing wide open.

Minorities Park Slideshow

Yesterday I wrote about my experience visiting the racist theme park outside of Beijing. Today, I’ve posted a slideshow of photos taken during our visit.


I hope these images will help communicate the source of the deep, disturbed feelings I was trying to share with you through my written words. Remember, this is all a fake recreation of a culture that China has been trying to destroy for the last fifty years.

Sickening. What gives the Chinese government the right to bastardize and commodify Tibetan culture? They tried to wipe it out, and now they pretend to be its “protectors.”

Why don’t they just get their filthy, imperialist hands off Tibetans’ cultural heritage, and let Tibetans have their country back?

Hi Lahdon! First of all, thank you for doing this for all of us who are fighting for free Tibet.
I am, and will be checking your blog everyday.
What you are sharing with us make my jaw drop each time. I still can’t believe this country is hosting the Olympics. This is nothing but a nightmare. This is insane. The country is a cartoon.
This can not go on. It is 2007 for God’s sake.
I won’t be quiet.
Keep us posted. We are all here supporting you, even thought you can’t see us.

It is funny how China already treats Tibet as an extinct culture and people….when Lhadon la was talking about Tibetans being lost, I imagined we (Tibetans) as ghosts and we are roaming around foreign countries trying to find our homeland/freedom…almost like we’re in limbo..thank you Lhadon la for taking a big risk..we appreciate how your bringing the Tibet issue out in the world again!!!

Lhadon you are in our hearts and prayers every minute. You are taking great personal risk to tell this story as it should be told: from your own eyewitness, as a Tibetan, as an informed student of history, and in real time to as many people as will listen. Godspeed and rangzen! xo
