A proud little person stands in the entrance of his 'mushroom' hut after a show featuring dwarves singing, dancing and acting during a twice-daily performance for tourists at their "Kingdom of the Dwarves" located in a mountain commune just outside of Kunming, the capital of China's southern Yunnan Province, on September 25, 2012. A community of Asian dwarves has set up its own village to escape discrimination and bullying from normal sized people, yet hoping to attract tourist dollars from the "theme park' of fairy tale characters they've managed to build.
