Geese and Ballet

I don't know about you guys, but I've had an awesome couple of days!

Last night I went to the famous Nottingham Goose Fair. I've been going for the last ten years, ever since I moved up here.  I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of the rides but there's something special about it's atmosphere.

Part of it is the history.  The fair's been going for hundreds of years.  It has the world's oldest movable helter skelter.  It's also the largest fair in the world (or so I was told).

So far we have only seen how humans celebrate on Kinmara. How do uma have a good time? We already know the uma are great inventors.  Perhaps they have built fairground rides. What do you think?

This afternoon I went to the ballet with some children from my school.  It was amazing.  I LOVE stories and a ballet isn't just dancing, it's telling a story through dance.  Soon you will find out that the warriors' guild isn't the only guild the uma have.  There's an entertainers' too.  I wonder if they tell stories through dance?

Everywhere I go I see things that'll help me tell great stories and bring Kinmara alive.
