on top of a mountain
The best part of the fest was the music. There were several traditional bands playing some lovely little tunes. I felt like I was in another time period. All the older couples were completely in costume, and they knew all the moves to fit the music. Unfortunately they were all partner dances, and I had no partner, so I could not participate. I was very sad. However, watching these people was so incredible. There was one man in particular who made me grin from ear to ear. He was enjoying himself to the utmost. He did not stop dancing the entire time (a man of my own heart, for certain). He was smiling and sweating and busting these moves... I can't even explain it. I just know that I felt some great energy here, and I can only hope to be as vibrant when I get older.
