photos - walking dead - part 1

The children saw men walking on the street above the forest. They were dressed in what looked like a diaper from the distance. We followed them to see what was going on.

This was a procession of the "Walking Dead", who represent those who died in the independance battles against the French in 1804.

The men had their faces painted with mud. These walking dead had a story to tell. This man made quite a bit of noise banging the pot lids together to get everyone's attention.

Everyone was fascinated by their actions. They didn't mind that I took their photos.

The play didn't last very long but it was interesting to watch. The children kept their distance though.
