have you ever smelt something before you heard it or saw it...i did yesterday, it was incense burning and very strong incense at that

i came outside my Hostel to see this coming down the road

and the procession that accompanied it

i was an amazing sight with the deep bass drums pounding and the incense burning, and then the women came into view carrying this massive piece of religious art ( i have no idea of the name like a human carried float) . there were 50 women on each side and men at the front and rear directing/ steering it. it carried on down the street in a swaying motion, a very awe inspiring had to be 100 feet long

notice the lady in middle carrying her baby as well

the band following behind

i got around the procession and got a shot as the sun went down with the volcano in the background

as it got dark the people carrying swapped quite often from women to men...the procession went on for hours, it went past my place at 5.30 and it was still going around the town at 9.30pm
