This week’s photo challenge is Dance. A while back, I had the pleasure to visit Bulgaria’s beautiful capital, Sofia, for work and had a try at traditional Bulgarian folk dance at the touristy restaurant Chevermeto.
First, the professionals showed us how it was done.
And then the audience was invited to join in. I was just trying to go in the right direction and not step on anyones toes but some of the people from the audience danced like professionals. I figure that either their hobby is traditional Bulgarian dance or they must come to this restaurant often.
The food in Bulgaria is delicious. This restaurant was no exception. Maybe the fact that our hosts were locals and knew what to order had something to do with it though. On the right, my favourite Bulgarian dish – Shopska salad.
Looking through my archives I found funny photos of myself dancing in Johannesburg and Nairobi too. If you ever get chances like this – don’t hesitate to seize the opportunity. I will cherish all these experiences forever even though I’m sure I looked a bit silly at the time!
