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.
