roadside funeral

Funerals can be pretty big events here. What often happens is that fake (and real) flowers are set outside of a temporary temple, a tent is erected, a picture is put up on an altar, music is sometimes played, spirit money is burned, and a vigil is maintained, sometimes for a day or two, sometimes more. This one started the day after I took this picture. It looked like a big important one.
