ZOA House and Eco Tours invite you to the Chinese Night:
20:00 – Starting from the belly with the famous Tibetan dish: Tibetan Momo
The story of the Tibetan mumbo of Tibetan Lobsang and Yala started in 2004. They met in Dharamsala and immediately fell in love. After they got married and thought of going to Israel, Lobsang said, “Maybe we’ll become mummies and sell them?” And since history … they are here, producing with love, preparing each one of their mummies in one hand as in Tibet. And besides they’re really pretty, they’re vegan too!
21:00 – Lecture: Are the Chinese the same? Lecturer: Yuval Levy Eco Tours
China defines itself as a multi-national state with 56 official nations and dozens of sub-minorities. The Chinese narrative claims that unlike the peoples of Europe, China has never been colonialist, but a civilization attracted by peoples and cultures that have joined together to form the fabric of nations of China as it is today.
Throughout history, Chinese civilization has maintained a complex relationship with its neighbors. It was swallowed up and swallowed up by the ‘wild’ peoples who settled its borders, absorbed many influences and enriched them with an endless movement of bloodshed and mutual cultural influence. With the passing of generations, these peoples have become an inseparable part of the fabric of Chinese civilization, most of which settle the vast expanses of China’s book areas.
During the lecture, we will explore some of the most fascinating areas, including Tibet, Yunnan and Inner Mongolia, and learn about the special character of ancient peoples and the fascinating relationship with Chinese culture.
