Her face is Han Chinese, but her dress is pure Tibetan. You can see exactly how much impact modern life has on her ways: The plastic bags and running shoes are made from petrochemicals, and yet she's still close to the life of subsistence farming that is little changed over the past twelve thousand years.
Oh, and her teeth are perfect, too, just like the other natives.
Captured through the window of a bus, jouncing over the ruts and craters of the roads in northern Sichuan Province, China.
