Dragon workshop, Lantau Island

In Lantau Island, HK, I stumbled upon this father and son business gearing up for Chinese New Year. They make the dragon heads (and other animals, real and not) for street festivals. It's incredibly fiddly work; a process of fixing near weightless strips of bamboo into complex structures onto which a paper-maché face is pasted. 

Pakistan security

I never once felt threatened in Pakistan but these chaps were there just in case. Lovely guys but probably a good thing we didn't find any trouble as their ancient Hilux truck had no starter motor and required the assistance of all the village kids to push it started. They wouldn't let me photograph that.
