Can't visit a country without a trip to the Market. These 'Tibetan' markets are usally run by Chinese rather than the Tibetan's themselves so it is often dificult to pick who you are going to buy from. Some Chinese even dress up like Tibetans to look the part.
So the big question on your mind might be how much is 50 Yuan, well it is about $7. So did I get ripped off? I dunno but I thought it was a pretty nice piece of folk art, was easy to carry around for the rest of the trip and was certainly not thhe kind of thing you can find in any Tibetian store in any major city in North America.
