Art Festival

This last week Carith, the boys and our neighbor Alexi and I went to a local art festival.  It was really close to our neighborhood in Porto Cupecoy - plus it was free - so we thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of the opportunity.  It turned out to be alot of fun.

OK - so here is the story - we arrived at the art festival which was at the marina next to our little grocery store.  When we walked up the boys noticed a red carpet - "we get to walk the red carpet mom" - then there were two "women" handing out the schedule for the evening - well - 1 was a women the other was a drag queen that was probably 6'5" at least.  The boys were a little nervous to walk by at this point.  On the other hand Alexi and I were like we have to get a photo - so we did - as you can see

Once the boys made it past the ladies they had a good time going down the red carpet

Some of the artwork that was on display

It was a great chance to browse at different pieces of art we may want to bring home from our adventure on St.Maarten

there was art of all kinds - there were 2 women with painted bodies that stood on display in white boxes - the painting on their bodies was amazing

Nice, you got it

Ro's turn

I think we all had a fun evening - even though there was some extra added flavor that we would not have had at home - which is why you travel and do things in other places.  Thank you Alexi for the photos - it was great to go out and do something local on the island.  It was these experiences that we came here to enjoy.
