I may have missed the point, but from my perspective the church was a tourist folly to be avoided since it cost money just to step inside! Then, once you've purchased access to their church, photography was strictly forbidden and prosecutable, as were photos of the dozens of church/government leaders scurrying around in fuzzy, furry, little costumes; ones that evoked images of a cuddly Ewok Bureaucracy.
Despite it all, Gaili, a truly gifted photographer, snapped dozens of incredible shots of Chumula and its diminutive little people while I managed my share...within their rules.
