Hailing from Australia, David Yeats lived and worked for two years as an English teacher to young monks in Yushu, Qinghai, the Tibetan area recently hit with an earthquake that killed almost 2,200 people. Now living in Beijing, he traveled back to Yushu to help with the relief effort, and tells us all about it - from the concerted prayer efforts of lamas across the world to the pillagers who posed as monks to snag valuables from the rubble. Recently engaged to a Tibetan woman, David also shares a few of his best pick-up lines that are sure to melt the hearts of many a nomad girl.
