about me

I first came to Tibet in 1988, just after high school. I fell in love with the place and I am still. So after years at University studying and doing my MA and afterwarts teaching Anthropology and Tibetan Studies for six years at Humboldt University at Berlin, now I am living here in Lhasa/ Tibet. My plan with this site is to promote knowledge about Tibet and it's currency, to give a forum for exchange of knowledge and information and to exchange and sell Tibetan coins.d sell coins.
