Sports Day at Tibetan Home Schools

Thursday afternoon I received an invitation for a half-day trip: going to the Tibetan Home Schools (set up in the ’60s for Tibetan orphans after the Chinese invasion of Tibet, and now for destitute Tibetans, orphans, and refugees) for their sports day. I dressed up in my Tibetan outfit, and off we went.

The school is in Happy Valley (a Tibetan enclave), and we were there for the opening ceremonies, and then headed off after some of the sports started, since the folks I was with (Mr & Mrs Chophel) had to work. Below are some photos; I hope I’ll get to update this with video, if YouTube will let me upload the video!
