Thanks Yudron I really enjoyed that. Got a bit teary eyed at the end when it mentioned the magnitude of the problem of disappearing languages.

It's really professionally done, eh? Unfortunately, I can't understand a word any of them say.

Very nicely done.

I could understand only the Lhasa and Kham dialects, and one of the Kham dialects took real concentration!
