it's a hat. and i spotted it in the window of paris' very first tibetan store which opened over 32 years ago. there are tibetan boutiques and restaurants all over paris, not to mention a fabulous collection of tibetan flags flying from haussman apartment windows all over town. i have had my camera handy and have been snapping shots of the flags at every opportunity. right now my friend tenpa is finishing a three day protest walk sans food, along with some of his fellow tibetans in australia. here is a little interview he did before the walk. i hope he is doing okay right now. meanwhile i am in paris eating my heart out. the world is a funny (not funny ha ha) place.
