Eid Celebration Pictures

My friend Amanda is a great photographer, and unlike me, she woke up early enough on Eid to get some pictures of the gathering in front of the mosque. I heard yesterday that the Eid gathering at the Dongguan Mosque in Xining is the third largest in the world after Mecca and Medina. At first this sounds outrageous, but considering the various geographical distributions and geopolitical concerns, it's plausible. At any rate, here are a few pictures from this year.
