A Mongolian contortionist
Mongolians love their contortionists. Girls started training as early as three years old and their can do until their late thirties. Enkhtsetseg Lodoi, was my neighbour when I lived in Ulaanbaatar, capital of Mongolia. She was performing when she was five months pregnant and almost after the birth. For many years she worked in the west and now she is retired but teaching girls for this old Mongolian art.
