Becoming attractions at Macau Jazz festival

 

After I got cured from the cold I talked about last time, I was enthusiastic to do something. I was lucky. There was happening a Blues+Jazz festival at the Venetian casino. Actually, it was a competition of music groups from all around the world and the groups were playing various kinds of music, not only jazz. I liked especially one from Phillipines called Bleu rascals which had one of the best and most crazy guitarists I have seen.

There was also another entertainment- gondolas with fireworkguys. I don’t know how to call them in English. See the picture below:

Visitors of the festival really liked scenery of the casino and took a self picture in an innovative way…

What we enjoyed most was a local Irish stand. When buying the first beer we got green sunglasses and after buying a second one we got green hair. Suddenly, we became another festival attraction. Indeed, more visitors wanted to take a picture with us than with the jokers or the superman. Haha. It was really funny. Also a local Macau television came, recorded us dancing and interviewed us later as well. Arguably, they havn’t seen before European students having fun after a few beers. I have to learn Chinese harder to find the videos in the internet.

Now, I was just curious and checked the results and the group I liked won the competition. I think it will be famous in the future. You will see.
