Being Exotic

These were photos from two years ago, in Xiahe. I don't usually dress like this, but somehow on that particular day, I felt like dressing in a different way. Tourists there thought I was the girl of ethnicminority, the local people were totally puzzled about my identity and the lamas were so much amazed by my skirt- since it really looked like their particular dobok. From that trip I learn a new Tibetan word (even though I didn't know how to write them or type them down) pronounced as chew-lee-ko-lo, meaning "the red clothes worn by lama".
