365 Out takes: June 6th
A few of the pictures that I thought were good, but maybe not as interesting as the one that I posted on my project 365 blog. What do you think? Did I make the right decision?
Yet again, I had a great time dancing with Ava. We danced (Japanese Fan Dancing, not Flamenco this time) to 愛とどきますか (Is this love?) by a very famous singer… Takeo Michiko? Maybe? One of my favorite parts of Fan Dancing is imagining the story of the song based on the dance alone, as I usually can’t understand all of the lyrics. I think nearly all fan dancing songs are sad. Because I’m always “crying” and falling down and crying some more in them.
HOWEVER! Another group of girls (elementary schoolers) danced to a song called “It’s raining.” It made me giggle because when they entered and exited the stage, they had their hands cupped over their heads, as if protecting them from rain. 😀
I’d forgotten, though, how epically hot it can get underneath the kimono. The lady who dressed me today really padded me in! I was covered in towels and tied with eight or nine different ties. It was madness! But fun. Until I spilled pineapple juice all over the kimono… which isn’t mine! AHHHHHH! (I was freaking out, and once I saw my teacher, I told her what happened. I even asked my Japanese friends how to apologize EXTREMELY politely. Then my teacher told me, “It’s okay, it’s just polyester.” I think my relief was visible.)
All right, K@ out!
