There was a time when this event was held outdoors. It was cold, but brief, and somehow, the reenactment seemed more real as actors and animals walked past the crowds, close enough to see the steam coming out of their mouths and then marching to the creche to pay their respects at the Auditorium Pavilion. You could even reach out and touch the two- humped camel where sometimes the front end moved in a slightly different direction than the back end.
The woman in front looked like she might have time-travelled from another world, and maybe she did. It seemed as if she would soon vanish in a puff of smoke. Could she be an angel?
