ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER "U"


Its ABC Wednesday again and I'm posting the letter "U". This is the men's celebration for the upcoming wedding in the country of UZBEKISTAN. There is much noise and music and the blare of horns. This "parade" was passing in front of the home we were staying in and on their way to the Brides residence. Uzbekistan is such a fascinating country.
As always enlarging the photo will show the details more clearly.

Clever use of the unusual u.

Dragonstar said...

Olivier is right, they look like a straight alpenhorn. They obviously take a lot of blowing! This is a very Unusual post!

As Dragonstar notes, the long horns must take a lot of blowing, judging by the puffed cheeks of the players. An interesting photo. - Dave

I was thinking this is the hard way to clean the sidewalk, but then again, I have never been accused of having too much class. My sister wanted to kill me after a comment I made about our visit to the the Louvre last year. Probably best not to repeat it :)
