The decorations color the streets and people are always in good spirits. Never. Your heart is broken. Don't ever forget Tana Botta, also known as the Star Festival, is a day marked on July 7th but celebrated for much longer as we're now in the month of August, it celebrates the meeting of the deities, or Rehema, and PICO Bush's ah love story, where these two lovers air only allowed to meet on that particular day. On this day, everyone makes a wish in hopes that that wish would come true. Today we are in a saga where the tongue about the festival originally began in 1954. Mhm. Okay, Mhm. Ah, shopping street is filled with paper mache art that hangs from the roof of the outdoor Pearl Shopping Center south of the station. Each creation was handmade by locals and was such a sight to witness. Okay, you got me. Oh, did you? Hey, guys, we're in a saga right now. It is insane. Really cool. So all of the things that you see are made out of paper on there. Just like I think they're handmade.
