A morning out


I spent an extremely nice morning today at the Javanese Festival Show.

It was an OEA Tripoli club event sponsored by the Indonesian embassy.

The main feature of the event was a reinactment of a Javanese wedding ceremony.

The costumes were splendid! This is the bride's elaborate hairstyle with golden hair peices and a hairnet woven from jasmine.

Music was played on traditional instruments made from bamboo. The sound created was really amazing. I've never heard anything quite like it before. Posted by Picasa

  4. Canon Power Shot A400 - not a very expensive camera. I have a Sony that cost me a small fortune and takes wonderful pictures (when it's working) Spends more time in the shop then out.
