Today my Rimma and Sasha took me to a very interesting festival on the outskirts of town. It is a festival for handmade crafts. It took place on the grounds of a very oldsettlement from the seventeenth century, hence the cabins and wooden cathedrals. It was basically a huge market where all the vendors sold their hand made clothes, chachkies, baskets, ... etc. Of course their was live music and children dancing. Many of the children were dressed in clothes from the time period of this settlement. it was very interesting and a lot of fun. I met many people from town and many of the kids from the school. Best part of all was that Russian Ryan Seacrest was back!!!!! Except this time he was more of a Seacrest/ Donny Osmond hybrid. Check it out.
The best part is that when he takes the stage, the women ages 8 to 80 absolutely loose it. When he finished singing the crowd errupted. I was waiting for a hand stitched pair of underwear to go flying onto the stage. Woman want him and Men want to be him!
Watch the video. He doesn't even have to sing. If he stands on stage... they will come!
Anyways, I am off to bed early tonight. Tomorrow is a huge day for the project! I am making my presentation to the children at the school and big negotiations with the director of schools awaits. I am very excited for tomorrow!
