Well deserved POTD - Congratulations! One of those rary photos that raises all kinds of questions. Not the least of which is, "What the hell are those people doint?!"

Great capture! #6188373

Beverley Scott 7/16/2008 4:05:02 PM

Thank you all for your wonderful comments - they are much appreciated. This was taken at a cultural show called Lijiang Impressions, showing the traditions and lifestyles of the minority Naxi, Yi and Bai people in Yunnan Province China. It is between Lijiang and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain so anyone visiting this area should put it on their "must do" list. The in-the-round theatre is open to the elements with snow-capped mountains as a backdrop. This photo was taken in the rain so don't let the weather put you off - they provide raincoats! I saw it last year but it is still going. #6188567
