INT'L STREET PERFORMERS FESTIVAL
For the second time on this trip we had the opportunity to see an International Street Performers Festival. The first was at Rynek Glowny, Krakow Poland's beautiful central square. This one was held in Lumphini Park, about a forty minute walk from our hotel. We stayed for about three hours and saw break dancers who “said” they were from New York, a juggler from New Zealand, a Thai person who could blow darts to break balloons and ride a bike only twelve inches high, etc, and finally a funny Japanese lady who performed a cool comedy mime routine. When the crowd grew large, the sponsors sold "periscopes" so people could see over the people in front of them.
This is also our first attempt at placing a video on the blog by way of YouTube. I credit my friend Erwan from Paris who instructed me how to do it. Thanks, Erwan!!! Enjoy.
OH, BY THE WAY, I DIDN'T KNOW THE CAMERA HAD TO BE SIDEWAYS...OOPS. TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT, SIMPLY TURN YOUR LAPTOP ON ITS SIDE. FOR DESKTOPS, DON'T ELECTROCUTE YOURSELF.
