My Sunday program was partly the same as on Saturday, but in different order.
I started out by pinning and sewing the new glitter stars on my costume. And I have to say, now that it's finished it looks quite professional - which just underlines my lack of understanding for the prices of some Egyptian dance costumes that look quite similar.
Then I practiced the choreography I planned to perform on Monday night - as much as it's possible in a hotel room! At least there is a wooden floor, that helps.
In the afternoon I headed over to the Tarazade festival for my next two workshops.
The first was with the legendary Sema Yildiz, for Romani and Bellydance.
Here she is, showing how to snap your fingers Turkish style.
Her teaching style was a lot of improvised "follow the bouncing butt" as I had expected but she also gave enought explanations inbetween.
I waited until it got dark and then went on a little photo safari, walking the same way as the day before, to take pictures of illuminated architecural objects.
The Shehzade mosque, just around the corner from my hotel.
Sizzling hot shrimps with mushrooms, peppers and cheese - I never wanted this meal to end!
I did however go up for a moment to cool down and take a picture. Yeah I know, bad light...
