A Celebration - The Real Burning Man

Came across an usual Festival in Southern Myanmar. A Monk Funeral, more like a country fair. Traditional dancers, stage shows all night long, boxing matches, comedy acts, rides, novelties for sale, food, drink. It had it all including a Monks body lying in state. On the final night, in a specially built temple, the Monks body is burned.
