Xiapu's star model

Going to Xiapu for a half-month tour is sure to punch in. The "half-month" here is actually a place name, which sounds particularly interesting.
Half Moon Village is the purest Yi village in China that preserves the most complete historical and cultural heritage of the Yi people. Most of the villagers are surnamed Lei, and the village has a large number of talents. They have produced four talents and one person. The layout of the village is like an ancient city in Hollywood blockbusters. The buildings are arranged along the mountain shape, descending from the highest level. Most of them are made of blue bricks and cobblestones. There are more than 40 old buildings in the village. The style is uniform and well preserved. .
Come here to see the customs of the Yi people, a grandmother in the village who is wearing a Dai head of the Yi nationality is a big star. Her family moved to the new village, but she did not want to go; the old lady is 88 years old and still healthy, lived for decades, not willing to live in the old house. Because there are a lot of tourists in the village, there are many photographers, and they are very busy every day. The old people often put on beautiful costumes and act as models for photographers. This has become her life. The phoenix head is also called "panlong gong", the style is very complicated, but also the wig is tied. After the girl worshipped the church, she could make a phoenix head. On that day, there was a beautiful woman and a model. Let everyone have a good eye and a shutter.
