Smithsonian Folklife Festival

At the Temple

Originally uploaded by Karon

The Folklife Festival has outdone themselves with an amazing Bhutan Buddist temple in the middle of the mall. I spent a few hours on the mall and only made it through the Bhutan sections of the festival so I have NASA and Texas still to go. Yes, Bhutan, NASA and Texas is a strange combination, I have no idea how the Smithsonian comes up with these festival choices.

Edit to add:  This image is part of the Smithsonian Photography Initiative slideshow  of the “Best of the 2008 Festival”.
