The pictures show the process from sunrise though the streets.
P.S. After it was over, we went back to bed until 10:00!
We hear the drums at 4:30 am, it is time for the Monks to awaken for their morning mediation. This goes on for about 1 ½ at which time they begin to get their "baskets" and get ready for their morning walk though the town. The local people each day present offerings to the Monks each morning before sunrise and continue for about an hour. The food they collect will be all the food, they will eat up until noon, after that time only water is allowed.
