Old Eyes, New Home

This elderly Tibetan couple used to be nomads in the Southwestern part of Gansu province, China. Now, in order to discourage the nomadic lifestyle, the government has built them this affordable housing in the mountain side of Xianhe, Gansu. They said they were happy with their new accommodations, because now their grandson can attend a public school.
