The photograph of a procession from yesterdays edition.

Pity that the photograph from yesterday has been changed because I have just today received the explanation of what it was. I'll still put it here.

The photo is of a "Carsico Wedding", an event which occurs every two years on the rocks of Monrupino about 7 km from Opicina. A boy and a girl get 'married' in Carsico costumes (replicates) of the period of the end of the 1800s. on a summer Sunday. The week before the 'wedding', all the serenades, drinks and preparations are made which serve the two who are getting 'married' using the folklore of the epoch. The "past edition" does not happen for the reason that the couple are missing.
This year the organizers have said that the ceremony will take place, with or without, the couple.

Thanks to my friend Marco Simic who provided the explanation.

Danke schone, grazie mille, vielen dank, ben fatto Harry. Thanks for the photo.
So now we all know what it is about. But the couple do not appear to be very young!
Have to get in touch again with Marco to see if he can worm out the date when this years
"wedding" is going to take place.
