Review of Bonodori Festival

Today's weather was perfect for Bonodori Festival.
It was awesome to perform on the huge stage.
I enjoyed dancing with audiences, and enjoyed watching Taiko Aiko Kai's drum performances.
Taiko Aiko Kai members performed three times.

CA trip

I just came back from California trip.
I enjoyed meeting with Okinawan people in CA as well as rehearsing with
our dance members.
 
カリフォルニアでの集中リハがおわり、ニューヨークにもどってきました。
 
加州は、沖縄人も多く、沖縄食もおいしくて、
大勢の沖縄人会の方々とも会えて、
 
地方の先生がたとのリハは、我が古郷の読谷村に帰ったような
思いになるほど。楽しい時間があっという間に過ぎてしまいました。
次回は10月の本番前に加州に行くのが楽しみです。
 
加州での写真集をご紹介しましょう。

Today's Salad

 Today's dinner menue:
I purchased a small salad of Squid and Octopus, and I added other fresh vegetables: mushroom, cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, celery and sweet peas. It became the HUGE salad below.
I also made NikuJaga and Gomoku Gohan.
 
 
I completed packing my luggage for CA trip for stage rehearsal, and
will report my trip in CA next week.
I am so ready for this trip!
