Funeral, Pelling. April 30. 1999

 

Dutch actor and musician Luc van Loo and Dutch-Hungarian acrtor and director Petra Ardai from the SPACE theatre project (Hope I got this right!). We met at the Share-jeep in Darjeeling. Luc (like I) was an unwilling headbanger at 190 cm, and the two of us hardly left room for Petra in the middle seat of the Mahindra.

Petra and Luc was invited to a wake the first evening, so Luc is here presenting a Kata (or Katak - the white or light yellow silk scarf).

The logs are for the funeral pyre at the Sangachoiling monastery
