It was all about...

and Her

As I mentioned before, I lost my guide during most of this ceremony, so I really don't know what was up with these two....were they local royals? The future king and queen? Two kids representing past royalty? I don't know, but I can say this boy here was all over it-very cool, calm and collected, very comfortable with his apparent status and future life of luxury. This young lady was more.....irritated. At first, she was in a small pavilion where lots of women primped her. She had just had enough, and the show hadn't even started yet.

And then, things did start and they were literally picked up and carried (awkwardly) away.

To a spot where they were apparently blessed (held aloft the entire time).

They appeared reverential when it was more sourpuss (even though she was slipping off her carrier the entire time).

Then whisked away again and hoisted onto the tiniest ledge of an altar where they had an audience with two seriously spiritual looking men-priests/holy men/community leaders?
who each continually chanted their own tunes and did some bell ringing.

What a day, and it's not over yet....
