This picture was taken at the official opening gala function of the Ningbo Tourism Festival.
This is a traditional Chinese stage performer. Part of the act is that the mask changes colours a couple of times during the performance. He was one of many performers on stage on the opening day of the tourism exhibit on Tianyi Square.
For the next week I may be a little erratic with my posts. We have a delegation from China arriving tomorrow and returning to China next Thursday. I have to fly to Cape Town tomorrow to meet them there and will be there for two days. We will be doing Table Mountain and Cape Point during our stay, so I am looking forward to getting some nice Cape Town pics. On Sunday we are back in Port Elizabeth and will be visiting two game reserves on one of the days, so I am hoping for some good animal pics as well. After they return to China my life will now get back to normal. It has been a hectic 6 weeks and I can't wait to get some rest and get back to my normal work routine. So please excuse me if you don't see much of me for the next 7 days, but I will make it up with some great South Africa pics when I get back.
