Finally, the goddess and her children are put on a truck for the final journey to the river. The festival ends with the immersion of the idols in the river. All those months of hard work, those beautiful sculptures that I saw being made a few months ago - turn back into clay in a few minutes.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
