This weekend was the Nara Basara Matsuri festival. I was so fortunate to participate with a dance troupe and I had the time of my life (I’ve also feel like I’ve never sweated more in my life- glad I didn’t wear any makeup, haha)! We danced for the entire day up and down the street and on stage. It was great to see everyone smiling and having a great time. There have been times that I’ve really been frustrated with my own inadequacies lately, but as a sappy image macro out there probably says, music and dance have no language barrier! I loved getting to meet new people in the community and working together with them to bring a little joy to the spectators.
Afterwards I got to try a delicious festival food called tamago senbei (literally egg cracker) and pet a few more deer before I took the train home.
