Today ... AfroLatino Festival

These Dancers were doing a dance from Colombia (I believe).

Au Lac Lion Dance - it's a Vietnamese Dance

Devils Dance by African Conexion

Today I went to two "festivals" in Seattle, one was actually the first Annual AfroLatino Festival in North Seattle, while the other was like a smaller community/cultural/farmers market type festival. At both of them however, not only was I able to see the AfroPeruvian Devils Dance that my friend is in, but at one I got to see these adorable kids perform a Colombian Dance, and at the other I got to see a Vietnamese Lion Dance. Very cool.

And this morning I planned my class for tomorrow!!! :o) Woop woop.

Should I do a "Maggie's Rants" Blog? A friend suggested I do it because he finds my mini-rants (about anything and everything) to be rather funny and good natured / good humored. So ... what say you, you 7 readers that I have (if that)!??!?!?!
