An enjoyable fair
Re: “Bringing people together” [Volume 12, Issue 4 or bit.ly/2L1JcVW]
You had a good story about the Linda Vista [Multicultural] Fair. I saved the article so I could read it again after enjoying all the musical and dance groups.
My feet hurt because we stayed there many hours and [there were] not enough chairs. So maybe next year, let’s get more. The main stage could be a lot bigger. It was very enjoyable; lots of good food. I joined my daughter who lives in Linda Vista and visited with neighbors.
The parade was very enjoyable — so many different groups and lots of bands and different organizations in the parade and law enforcement. I think a fire engine could have interested the young people as a career. Maybe there was one but I don’t remember.
The announcer was very energetic and kept the crowd entertained. I told him so.
We ate good food from Kenya. It was vegan. We enjoyed all the hard work that the dancers and musicians gave us. And wow, the steel drums! What a great treat. Their instructor should be recognized.

Looks like a great event. Your able reporting sparks interest, creates a desire to attend. Wish we were there to go with you. The art pieces, textiles are beautiful and bright. And what interesting people — 23 different languages and dialects.
I once taught with an Indonesian teacher in Austin, and they had so many dialects and variations in that small country that she could barely understand someone who lived 30 minutes away. Her husband was doing graduate work on a breed of frogs who had no trouble finding cockroaches to eat in their college UT housing.
Thanks for sharing this article with me.
