8. Not your typical housewarming party

Rather, not your typical house! You hardly ever see houses this amazing here. Today we went to a housewarming party for our neighbor's sister. They haven't actually moved into the house, but this was the celebration of its completion and the day that they perform special religious ceremonies to bless the house. This was one amazing party! Thousands upon thousands of dollars were spent on the party, and I would venture to say hundreds of thousands were spent on the house (or more). It is the most extravagant house I've ever been to in this country.

WARNING: Lots of pictures, little words, loooong post. I would have done a mosaic, but the pictures need to be seen in their full form.

NOTE: In the post below there is a quick movie of dancing milk, suitar playing and the man that hands out the party favors. Scroll down and start loading it before looking at the rest of this post.
