Japan, Canada, Paris
I first heard the strong beat and sounds of the band, Paris in Tokyo so I wandered over to the band shell. The music was enjoyable and added a element of excitement to the festival. People of all ages were tapping along to the tunes. I usually walk around with my iPod on but not today. Instead I let the sounds of the band entertain me.
This is another culture within our own. Everywhere I went I heard and saw things that were different from what I am usually exposed to. Like when I glanced at the trees. A trio of birds that won't make a mess!
As soon as I saw these young ladies I immediately thought how graceful they looked. How elegant.
This next duo were on their way to an archery exhibition at the Japanese school. I was invited but I didn't make it.
People were everywhere...
and they just kept mulitplying it seemed!
Some were interesting people enjoying a meal and the atmosphere.
And others like Native Artist Richard Shorty came to show a bit of their work.
But one of the best things about these festivals are the food. Sunrise-Soya had a booth and I found their menu to be very appealing.
website. (there is also a great cookbook)
While I was walking to the park I passed Sunrise Soya foods.
And to think it all started with a man making a product in the back of a little grocery store then carting buckets of tofu to sell. Really shows what a person can do if they put try hard enough.
I hope you enjoyed your trip to the Powell Street Festival. I know I did. The only negative was that I was supposed to see my friend and dentist there but I couldn't find Ken. Sorry about that.
Until next time I hope you find the beauty around you.
