Beautiful Bai ethnic minority girls taking a break from their job posing with tourists (ARCHIVED PHOTO on the weekends - originally photographed 2007/06/10).
The ladies don't really care much for the Travel Guy which goes a long way to explaining why he's behind a camera and not in front of it. But for some inexplicable reason, the beautiful young gal on the left seemed to have a crush on me. Unfortunately, communication was a major issue along with my crushing lack of self-confidence, hence, I was forced to admire her
surreptitiously from behind nearby bushes from afar.
And yes, three of the five are hiding their faces. It makes sense as their job is to pose with tourists for payment. Unsanctioned cameramen get the hidden face treatment but one happily let the rule slide.
