Wow. We've done so much and we're only 4 days into this trip.
Today was full of more music and dancing and history and culture and art.
And we even ended up half-deaf after doing the conga too.
A lot of bus riding today but we got out often because everything we saw was in Santiago.

We started out at the Casa del Caribe - currently celebrating 35 years - and found a bunch of seats set out for us. Lecture time!
Lots of history though, and lots of information. I'm really enjoying it though again, I wish I had a better background of it.


From there we walked over to the Casa de la Religiones Populaires. Basically it's a living shrine to mulitpe religions where people can come and practice whatever they want.
We got a presentation by Abelardo Larduet and after that, the Grupo Abburreyé performed for us. They were good!



I told [livejournal.com profile] wrayb to copy the lady's pose. I realized after he mentioned it that it wasn't a lady.

From the journal:
Later start. The Casa de Caribe. Got more history and background of Santiago and other things including Haiti and the influx of tons of other influences. My book is full of notes and I can't read any of it. I think I was trying to write it on the bus.

Returned to the hotel last night to find the water working :-)
There was no need to switch our home for the night. Hurray for being able to be lazy for that evening. Now there's no need to pack until tonight. I think tomorrow we head off to Baracoa where we will stay in private homes - casa particulares. Right now watching members of our group dancing to La Bamba sung by a woman and her guitar in an Italian resto where we've just had lunch. Dessert tasted like bazooka joe in ice cream form.
And once again into the breach!
(I mean back to the bus!).

After Lyon, instead of staying on the continent, i flew back to London in time for the London Fetish Weekend.
First thing I did was visit Holloway Road to see Atsuko Kudo, then spent some time at Fettered Pleasures. Ended up meeting up with Samppa and Aneta for sushi at Bento in Camden. Then back to the house.

I think I became slightly addicted to the xbox and Guitar Hero. not good!

I was planning on getting to TortureGarden a little later but forgot about the fact that i'd need to do the rehearsal for the fashion show thingy.
Ended up getting there a touch before 19h00 where me and [profile] helene_atsuko got to see the HW Design outfits for the first time. They ended up looking like pieces from Flash Gordon/Superman - but think more along the lines of the evil characters! (Ming or Ursa from Krypton!)
The latex featured was the transparent but paint patterned sheeting with smokey black trans and black accent with a little bit of trans.

I wanted to head back to the house but realized that would just be a waste of time so I stuck around the club and got some food nearby.

The bondage show with Amrita was a smaller version of our Lyon performance - must less rehearsed and I planned on exerting less energy but during the show I kind of changed my mind and ended up becoming completely inverted for a while. Owie on my shoulders!
And AUA on my back too after Amrita sat on me.
Of course, I only realized how much it hurt the next day!

These one is from Mathieu Richardoz:

And this one is from Siberfi:


After the show, I put the latex back into the box and threw on my latex track suit n flip flops and ran to the bar. Ended up dancing around and having a blast. I didn't get home until sometime near 05h30. I even left after the TG office crew so I didn't get paid out for my show even! lol!

The next day I felt the pain, but ended up meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] zuckerrotermond and Sacha, Eden and Heiko, and [profile] hyperion_101 for dinner in Shoreditch. [livejournal.com profile] ynl and his work buddy came too. After eating we stumbled over to Hoxton for some drinks before stumbling home.

The following day, I packed up my things and headed for the airport for my trip to Edinburgh!

So last night I drove up to San Francisco to check out the first afterhours evening put on my the SF Symphony.
My buddy Richard met me at Davies Hall and I got the car parked and my ass into the venue on time for us to get into the 2nd set of the evening.

I got the tickets from the SF Weekly. Really nice ones too, none of this back of the hall type of thing.
Oh, and complimentary drink ticket (although the champagne was free  while it lasted too!)

We waited outside the hall for the usher to seat us since I was a little late, but then another usher told us that since we had box seats, we could've just gone in earlier. Oh well. So we listened to the KODÁLY: Galántai Tánkoc (Dances of Galánta)  while waiting outside.
The box seats were great. They were the ones closest to the stage by the cellos and basses.
The second part of the program was LOCH: Schelomo and I really enjoyed that one. It reminded me of a movie soundtrack or something.
The BRAHMS: Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Opus 98 was really nice though I started getting really sleepy during some slow portions. 

The featured cellist was Michael Grebanier and the future music director of the SF opera was Nicola Luisotti. If I stalked married Italian men he'd be one of them cuz he's damn cool to watch, though not has super cute like the motoGP racers I used to dig so much.

Ran into Cleo Dubois and Fakir Musafar as well as a few other kinksters during the evening!
Whoda thunk so many perves and it wasn't even a Wednesday night at BAGG!

The after hours event was great and Alex Kelly featuring the Mark Growden Sextet was damn good!

I'd love to check out the other upcoming events that are lined up, but I'll be in Europe the next couple of months.
I'd definitely suggest going.

kumimonster: (Default)
My friend Adrien says we should go out n see a show while i'm here.
since i missed out on the london and atlanta cirque's, he thought i'd like this for a change.
it's been here for at least a couple of years, but it's still around.
He also says they have this boys night but it's not til next month and i wont be here.
i think watching guys roll around in water over my head sounds better than watching girls.
actually, i dont think it makes much of a difference but he insists that the guys would be better.

We have tickets for Wednesday night.
