It may not be major news but it is a great picture. This is a contest. Some 30 contestants are contending in the current northern China laureates overall final of the 2009 Miss Tourism International (MIT) in Huangshan City, of which the top five are qualified to compete in the overall final of the 2009 MIT China Zone.
If you followed that to the end, congratulations.
Miss Tourism Queen International is an annual Chinese-based international beauty contest established in 2004. In April 2008, Miss Tourism Queen International set the record for the most participants in an international beauty contest with 113 women competing.
The Miss Tourism Queen International 2008 (which I think was the one before this) was won by Silvia Vanessa Cornejo Cerna of Peru and took place in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province.
This splendid picture has the contestants in a sort of zigzagging frieze in the Bao’s Family garden in Huangshan City, east China’s Anshun Province.
