In the Longga mountains we attended the final day of an annual festival designed for the youngsters to meet potential marriage partners. It’s also about saying goodbye to the long, cold winter.

The singing and dancing went all through the afternoon, but just as interesting was the crowd-watching opportunities on the hills surrounding the festival ground.

Apart from my group there were only about half a dozen other white faces in town. We had just as many photos taken as the performers!
