This woman is the voice of Tibet for China and the world

Most Chinese believe the government's view that Tibet is thriving under China's rule. They rarely hear about China's heavy hand there or its suppression of Tibetan dissent. That's where Tsering Woeser, a poet who grew up in Tibet, comes in. She lives in China and writes in Chinese striving to give a voice to her people.

Geo Answer

For today's geoquiz we were looking for the Shangrila Express and we found at least two. The first is a new railway that runs from Beijing to Lhasa in Tibet. The other can be found on the streets of Brooklyn, New York. It's a food cart run by street vendor, Namgyal Gompa who sells traditional Tibetan cuisine.
