Default Nuns on the sand

I spotted a nun taking pictures for her companion at the Singing Hill sand dunes near the Moon Lake Oasis in Xinjiang, China.

Yes, it's definitely a Canon S-model camera. I do notice one thing while I was in China, a lot of people use DSLRs. Nikon DSLRs are more popular in China than Canon. Mainland Chinese seems to be obsessed with Nikon cameras and Mercedes Benz cars. It is like a status thing for them.

It's always nice to see nuns having fun.

Modern nuns don't confine themselves to the nunnery, it looks like they can travel and have fun too.
