I would like to go one time, but, it won't be this year. I'm am pretty much tied up with looking after Dad. Course, how lucky am I, to still have a Dad to look after.

You are so very right. I lost my dad in 2000 and miss him all the time. I hope things are going well there and that they are safe and sound . You are a great son to be taking care of them. I'll give you a rain check.

I wish I had known you were going and I would have gone as well. I love going to these events. The Dega are so happy to have us there and they have great food and music. Also lovely bracelets. hee hee
Rick,,, it is a ceremony of Thanks. There is music all day,,, they have ceremonies and tons and tons of food. Some camp out for the weekend and some stay at a nearby hotel. It is awesome and you should try visiting at least once. It is the true Montagnard culture all over and they have some mememtos that they display. It's truly wonderful.
