A Little Bit of France in South Asia

Last weekend we were at the mall and saw these large red giraffes. We had heard that they were doing some sort of performances there, so we decided to stick around and see :)
A group from France had come over to do these performances. They did them on Saturday & Sunday night ;) It was an opera, but not sure what else to call it. It was very unique! There were two people inside of every giraffe making it move all around (their legs are the giraffe's legs).
This lady (below) was the lead actress/opra singer. She was singing in some language (not sure) and she actually spoke in Hindi (there wasn't much speaking though - mostly singing) - it was very interesting. See all the people! It was crazy! They were moving everything around over and through all the people! They would push them out of the way when they needed to move!
The main characters were this lady in white and a clown in red that played a bass drum. I didn't get it at all, and Aashini was terrified of the clown. She kept saying: "scary clown!".
The giraffes moved all around throughout the performances. It was very interesting! You never know what you're going to see!

Sounds cool! What a fun experience! I like the giraffes! They look cool! I think I wouldn't have liked the clown either!

I think only in South Asia could you push through a crowd and not get your giraffe torn down from the angry mob. Imagine pushing audience members out of the way in America!? Too fun...and I'm with Aashini...scary clown!
