An unusual entertainment

After our ride we went to see the water puppet show. Water puppets are very popular here and it is a very ancient kind of entertainment. Apparently it began in the flooded paddy fields centuries ago. It is something of a cross between Punch and Judy and Pantomime, the whole thing done in a big puddle.

The instruments were fascinating to see though painful to listen to.
