They(official Chinese) don't like pics of the Dalai Lhama and it's forbidden. The Tibetans are a sturdy folk have survived for centuries without the West. Unfortunately a lot of hippies or travellers preaching about independance, and when the local Tibetans demonstrate, it's them which gets shot, not the Westerners, the're long gone and lying on some beach in Goa or getting high in Katmandu!
