So we are standing in the plaza in front of house with a thousand other people. We had no idea why, but where there is crowds, there is excitement (or Maoist). All the sudden a bunch of boys come running through some with torches and then we see the elephant...kind of. It is actually a few guys with some bamboo covered with a sheet and an elephant face drawn on some poster board on the front of it. Under the sheet is a bell that they keep ringing as the "Elephant" runs through the crowd. Periodically it starts to run into the crowd and the boys with the flames tried to scare it to go in the right direction. This is the craziest country.
