Gobi Girl: Dance off

One night we were half dancing to the music and this little girl came up to me and wanted a dance off! Well I just had to liven up a then. Everytime I did a shoulder shudder, she would answer with her own, if I made a train shuffle , she would do the same , a magic 10 minutes. Thank you Yan Yinghong for the video clips. I will try to upload a video .

Meanwhile back at the International art camp: There was one intense storm with strong winds which ripped through the grounds,  afterwards  some repairs were required using tape .

A big thank you to all the artists I have met on my walk around the festival grounds, it was an unforgettable experience.
