The boy wearing a girl's clothes was walking on stilts. A festival was just held on that day. And he was one of the attendants. He paraded with many other people. Watching the parade, I wondered why the boy played the part of the girls. Maybe the locals thought it was too dangerous for the girls. Yet I couldn't think of right answer.

After a while, people include the boy in the photo started to march the streets. A playing band was in the head of the parade.
