Festival of Nations

Since some of my SlowTrav friends are in the middle of planning their trip to St. Louis the end of August this year, I thought I'd post some of my pictures from last year. Unfortunately, other than food, I don't have that many pictures. I had so much fun last year, I kept forgetting to use my camera.
But, if you want to see a really cool video go to the website for the International Institute and click on the red link.

I love this shot. It shows the crowds hanging out around the main stage. There are just so many interactions going on.

It was fun to watch the kids in the children's area learning the hat dance. And they were pretty good!

Backstage, waiting to go on. It was amazing the way these dancers balanced those platters on their heads as their hips gyrated.

These Bollywood dancers were happy to let me take a closeup picture of their beautiful outfits.

I love these photos! They are so happy and colorful. Too bad school starts for us at the end of July. It would be fun to be there.

So today I put a Dealfinder alert for AA on my desktop - guess I'm not just talking off the top of my head anymore.

Deborah responds: WAY COOL!!!!

Deborah responds: Well, Candi, there's always 2010.

This looks so interesting. I bet it's a wonderful, full day. I wish it were another time or our calendar were open late August. I'll be waiting to hear all about this years festival.
