Cold and Rainy on the Silk Road

Last weekend at the MN Ren Fest ended up being very cold and rainy. Only the most hot blooded of belly dancers were going around without a cloak. In fact, it was too soggy for the Parade, so that was cancelled, and the Festival closed their gates at around 4:30 on Sunday. They NEVER do that, so you know it was bad.

This was our first weekend with Fairy Woot, our new booth helper. She was very cheerful all day Saturday, but ran out of steam on Sunday. Maybe next weekend we'll bring a supply of Pixie Sticks to perk up her energy a bit, she says that caffeine just makes her sleepy. Fairies are a different race after all, they would tend to react a little differently than us mere humans.

I did manage to keep a cheerful attitude all weekend, though. It was fun to see everyone all dressed up in their garb, and to dress up myself as well.

I'll be sure to come when I won't get a cold :)
