Letter: Tibet and China

To the Editor: I read Edward Wong's Explorer article "On Foot in the
Mountains of Mystical Yunnan" (April 5), and while I was intrigued by
his descriptions of the places he visited, I was disturbed by his
constant references to the location as "the Tibetan region of China."
A more accurate description would be "Chinese-occupied Tibet." We
would not, I believe expect to see an article describing a trip to
Baghdad referring to the "Iraq region of the United States," would we?
