Latin festival...

Had been to a Latin fair 2 days ago. Below are pictures at that fair...


This picture is group of Mexican singers performing folk songs, they were very nice and well dressed... they got me carried to reminiscence my visit to Goa years ago. All I recollect of that visit is it was around new years eve Dad, Mom and myself walked a few blocks from our lodge to view a nearby celebrity event. The entry tickets were Rs.45 per head and there were all kinds of random Goan and Bollywood performances. Yes there was that guy I whom I did not have much interest in, but whom all my school friends dearly adored, the great cricketer Mr. Ajay Jadeja!! hmm as for me all I remember of him on cricket field is that he clapped too much(I'm sure some reader will surely agree :-))... sad I don't have a picture of that event, unfortunately we forgot to take the camera along(hehehe.. that reminds me of my Dad's big Nikon focusing camera) anyway going back to this past event, only thing I remember is that we took some seafood dish and it cost us Rs.100 for a few pieces of shrimp... I seem to be writing more of past than anything much of the Latin Festival 2 days ago... guess it is all about recollecting and enjoying the past.

Now coming to the present.. few more pics


yea... is this not awfully unpleasant!!!!

It is a real fish waxed and preserved... yakkks from me!









Moving further...


Showcasing tribal performance and practice.

And the stage performances...



Just amused and lost to watch them dance so well, from young kids to aged adult, I felt spellbound to the great music and performance. Of course for a minute I felt like being asked to get on stage, but then I knew for sure I would not be able to stand there for a minute... I just cannot describe how good they were. Well someday maybe I shall learn and be able to accomplish a few steps :-) until then I'm gonna go back in time and try to recollect all the school time teacher's day\annual day performances!!!

Hope I took some of you to visit your past, memorable golden days!!!!

Wonder how I missed this post? Where was this? Appreciate the efforts made to preserve their culture in a way that's most appealing to people.
