The Barkhor, Lhasa, Tibet

Tibet’s heart is the Jokhang, its most holy temple, in the centre of Lhasa. There are always pilgrims circumambulating – walking in a clockwise direction around it.
It is surrounded by a large Tibetan market known as the Barkhor. this is the most vibrant Tibetan part of Lhasa.

This woman arrived early in the morning to set up her stall. I suppose that in the heirarchy of traffic represented on this website, the human porter is the most basic medium of transportation.
