Beautiful young smiling girl with flowers in the hair seen at the river in the village Tulgit.
The flowers for decoration is a wonderful habit of the children around Tulgit and Kibish. The kids are waiting for the tourists at the river and decorate themselves with flowers, blossoms and green plants they can find everywhere around the villages. However, as nice as it looks, the decoration with the flowers is not an old tradition, you cannot see this kind of decoration in remote Suri villages. The kids, also the boys, are doing it for photos and for getting a little money. But anyway: it is beautiful !
