Just think of a "state fair" x 100, and you kind of get the idea of what it was like. So, so much food and other things for sale. Games of chance, carnival rides, dancing, and farm equipment and new car exhibits. But the centerpiece was the theatrical presentation in the main arena, complete with huge army battles along with elephants throwing bodies around. Everyone had a great time but as you can imagine, traffic was horrendous and it took us almost 45 minutes just to get out of the parking lot. I finally got home close to 1am, tired but very thankful to my host dad for taking us.

So, so many people...
Yes, fried bugs for sale.
The performance begins...
Lots of fireworks during the performance.
The cast take a bow for a wonderful performance.
And don't forget the elephants!
Skyler and I with a reluctant Don Kao, my host granddaughter
Kailie and Angela take a pic with some of the stars.
Everyone packed into the back of my host dad's pickup truck
for the cold hour-long drive back home.
Everyone will sleep well tonight. :)
