Alone in a crowd

I don’t take selfies. Traveling in China lots of people take lots of pictures. It is hard to get pictures of sights without people having their pictures taken in them. Although it seems like folks mostly travel in groups and having someone from the group take pictures is more common, a fair number of pictures I take contain people taking selfies.

This older woman, at least my age ;), caught my eye, she was obviously “doing” the Forbidden City alone. I wondered what her story was (is).

The picture below is one I took because a) my husband and son are in it b) it was typical of that day for one or more of us to be asked to be in pictures with Chinese people and c) there is a guy who is part of the group taking a selfie during the group pictures.
