Shout out to the very big dude who kept me in the shade through the entire step show last Sunday at the Bimbé Festival held at the Historic Durham Athletic Park.
Of cultural note, at least to me. In the old days when I'd go to Bulls games at the HDAP, I could just about guarantee I'd run into a couple dozen acquaintances any night at the ~5,000-person park. By contrast, while wandering among the 1,500+ folks at the Bimbé Festival on Sunday, I didn't see a single acquaintance or friend. Still a lot of Durham to meet...
Apparently you had it made in the shade and weren't watching the Ivorian dance routine when some random white guy who just moved to town was tapped to be one of twenty audience "volunteers" to participate in a dance duel. Suffice it to say, no one has invited me to join their dance troupe, but I did have a good time and didn't sprain anything.
