I am not normally one to go to a tourist attraction like this, but as it really did seem like something out of National Geographic, I had no choice.
Even seeing these people, who slowly add rings over the years, and only really take them off to bathe or for medical reasons, I still have no clue how they are able to do it. No, their necks to not really stretch, it is more like their collarbones are forced down making it seem like the neck is much longer than it really is.
This is a photo of me with the best salesperson you will ever meet. We purchased a shawl from here that is now a permanent member on our portrait wall at home. It is a neon pink shawl that she chose for us, as it was her favorite color.
