Why Did a Homeless Tibetan Beggar in China Want to Give Me Money? – OHS022

I recently traveled for thirty five days in Tibet and China. I was part of the 2017 One Path Outreach Medical Mission. We did medical support and service for a remote village in Eastern Tibet. Afterwards I spent two and a half weeks traveling in China with 8 full days at the Shaolin Temple in Henan province. I flew into the City of Chengdu in the Sichuan province from the United States. After landing in Chengdu, driving for three days to get into Tibet, returning to Chengdu, traveling to Yangshuo then to the Shaolin Temple, I returned to my Chinese “home base” of Chengdu.

Across all my travels I started to realize how people in Tibet and China viewed me as a one handed person. I had many many funny, interesting, and unique interactions with people. Especially a number of beggars and homeless people. This podcast shares some of my crazy cool interactions with the homeless beggars of Tibet and China.
