In Deqen (Yunnan) last October I was abruptly turned away from the only two internet places in town. Locals could only get online by submitting their ID cards. They didn't want anything to do with foreigners. Back down in Zhongdian though, tourists were walking around with their iPhones, Skype-videoing the souvenir shops to their friends back in Europe.Uyghyrs who obviously didn't like westerners and the fact that I was there.
That's unfortunate, no? The more outsiders see what's going on, the better, I would have thought. Not that it's done Tibet much good so far.
