Perahera Festival Colombo 2010

Here comes the main elephant carrying the special tooth in its special carrier. There is a truck that is following providing power for the lights. There are men collecting the white cloth you see and laying it down for the elephant to walk on.
What you don't see are that its (And every other elephant in the festival) has their hind legs chained together, lest they try to take off.
