Sichuan-Tibet highways a road to lifelong love

On December 25, 1954, the Sichuan-Tibet Highway and the Qinghai-Tibet Highway, two of the highest-altitude highways in the world, opened at the same time, ushering in the era of road traffic for the Tibetan people. And with that comes more communication and connectivity -- and, in the case of the Sichuan-Tibet Highway, a story of romantic love, linked to this very road. Behind me is the home of a couple whose very union is inextricably intertwined with this highway. Let me introduce you to their story.
