Performer poses for me at Flaming Mountains, Xinjiang

A Uighur performer poses for me near the tourist trap area with camel rides and gifts shops. She is dressed as a princess in the Monkey King origin story for the mountains, and we have stepped away form the rest of the actors for a moment to make her picture.
