I've read about those dreaded rings. 
It's not elongating there necks, it's forcing down there shoulders and breaking there muscle. 
This is beautiful, though. Her eyes are welling with emotion.

You are correct, it pushes the shoulders down,......cultural traditions that have been been around for ever :)

Oh, I didn't mean to insult culture! I respect there decisions. I just thought it was interesting that they did something like that, so I searched it and shared info :D

I know,......I did not know what to think when I saw them, it is strange :) specially since they consider that to be beautiful :-? (Confused)

I find your description interesting, why do you believe their beauty elusive? :o

It took me a while to notice what i was seeing and realize how beautiful these ladies are :)

I find your answer quite interesting (in a positive way) :B

Beauty is in acceptance and observation, then? :p

Broad question for sure :) to tell you the truth, seeing these ladies at the Hill Tribe was an experience of discovery, only after being there a few hours I realized how proud of wearing the neck-rings they were, and what a unique beauty they had,.....then again, I once read that: " Beauty is an interior light that shines thru" in other words they felt beautiful and as a visitor I could feel that :)
