Description Some Tibetan restaurants have English menus. That is, they use some English words, though not particlulary in any order that makes sense. For example we saw the 'Nourishing Chicken', the 'Tomato Fish', 'A Rice Line of Sand' and the 'Return to a Pot of Meat' being offered in Nyalam.
But this little restaurant in Taschi Dzom had some items we could actually understand, and one of them was chicken soup, which seemed nice to us. We ordered it together with some really tasty noodles and veggies and saw the owner of the place head out the door instead of to the kitchen.Why, became aparent when he returned with a chicken, which we recognized from the little cage across the street. At least it was going to be fresh!
We had almost forgotten about the soup as we had already finished the rest a long time ago and were drinking jasmine tea while watching Chinese state TV. But then a huge bowl appeared filled with soup. It was not a really clear soup and only while we were serving ourselves we noticed that it did not only have the usual chicken parts in it, but actually the entire chicken was there in bits and pieces as you can see. Milan is eating the leg - and when I say leg, I mean leg- and Thomas has just found another interesting bit on his spoon, which I thought deserved a picture..

Harry Kikstra, Earth Member Since February 2007 Artist StatementWho am I?
Harry Kikstra, a climber/expedition leader/ photographer/ filmmaker/ producer/ writer/ public speaker/ cyclist and many other things that have to do with sharing the beauty of the outdoors. I have climbed the 7 continental highpoints and have travelled a lot and will not stop soon, though normally I am based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Contact me if you want other images or galleries from ExposedPlanet and I will add them.
I, Harry Kikstra, have started ExposedPlanet.comnot only as a way to show my portfolio, but also to share the beauty of our planet. Nowadays negative press & media might make people scared of everything foreign or different: culture, religion, people and the places themselves. This xenophobia is taking over our lives and prevents us from seeing the real world as it is: a wonderful place with beautiful people. There are no bad or evil countries, religions or people. There is bad and good people in every culture, including your own.
I hope I can share a bit of the amazement I have enjoyed while travelling the 7 continents. The more I see, the more I know I still have to see and I will. Life is too short to focus on not-existing enemies & fears.
The posters here all have small borders, with the name of the image and "ExposedPlanet" on them. If needed, they can be cut off or covered with a mat, if you just want to look at the subject only. If needed, I can upload a 'clean' version, just ask. Also please let me know if you are looking for a specific image or subject, as there are many more where these came from and I might be able to help you out, see also my website for a few hundred examples.
These images will also show more of the culture and other nature that is to be found on our 7 continents. I hope that it will sparkle your imagination, make you curious or even just educate you a bit, being maybe the 3 most important aspects of society in my view. A picture can say more than a 1000 wars and can maybe help understand the world around us. It's a small place, so maybe we can make the best of it together..
