'The nomad is easily distinguished from the town folk and traders when he comes into the market place for supplies. Across his back is slung the Tibetan rifle with the long prongs attached to the barrel; his right shoulder is bared, while the long sleeve of his coat carelessly drags along in the dust.' 'I have seen swaggering warriors with rakish foxskin hats, knee-length boots and huge sheepskin cloaks tied up at the waist with bright silken sashes. They were armed to the teeth with gold-damascened dirks, swords or rifles.'
