Last weekend was fun, here in our fine little city. We had an Asian Festival. Yummy food, multicultural dancing, singing, acrobatics and REALLY BIG Japanese drums. Playing those drums must be an aerobic experience. I've heard that the players train on a little Japanese Island and play for hours every day. It was the Matsuriza Taiko Drum show. I hear a lot of the acts at the festival, play at Epcot, Disney, FL, frequently.
And then, in the art museum, there were the Tibetan Monks. They've been here before and spent the whole week working on a mandala. It was awesome. Of course they ceremonially 'destroy' it when they're done and put all the colored sand in the river.
