Mongolia...from the Community Development Naadam

A woman in traditional dress for a performance in the Community Development Naadam

Mongolian wrestlers before their wrestling performance at the opening ceremony of the CD Naadam. Sometimes it's all about being at the right place, having your finger pressed half-way down on the shutter release button for a long time, and having an excellent zoom lens!

This girl obviously knows where she wants to go...but she might be having a hard time convincing her dad, or whoever that dude is.

More performers in some kind of traditional costumes

Now that is the biggest horsehead fiddle I ever did see. This was on the stage at the event and was never played...maybe just for decoration? The man in the suit is one-third of the boy band that performed in the finale of the event.
