Assignment Kunming

Tear Drop, 2 of 20
No, this boy is not crying because there is a big foreigner taking his photograph--he was already sniffling when I approached.

Again at the Stone Forest these people of a minority group, perhaps Yi or Bai, sell their wares to the tourists--mostly Chinese tourists, as Westerners are still hard to find in Kunming.

The boy may not be crying because of me but he certainly is crying a little harder after seeing my face. I moved in to take the pic, he spotted me and the crying started for real--though his friend here seems to enjoy the antics.
