This afternoon we headed down to Bondi for the South American Festival. We weren’t really sure what to expect, but we found a bunch of Latinos (and non-latinos who enjoy South American culture) enjoying live music, dance exhibitions, and some great food.
The dancing from a variety of different South American countries was fascinating, and the food was fantastic (have I mentioned how much I love empanadas?). We tried some interesting dishes and basically spent the afternoon wandering around between the exhibitions and grazing on the food from different stalls – I think we sampled something from almost every one of them.
There was also a Capoeira exhibition, which is a kind of part martial art / part dance / part game, with lots of acrobatics and lots of noise. Fascinating to watch.
