As we all have figured out by now, I am a horrible blogger. In the almost 6 months that I have been here I have blogged all of 3 times.. So I figured now that I have one week left, I will try to make up for it.
I’m trying not to do monster blog posts so it makes it quicker to read and I can keep everyone more entertained posting more frequently. So I should be posting more often over the next couple of weeks or so!
I was able to go to the Festival de Mascaras in Barva with my mom and sister. I’m a bit slow, this was back in March. The festival started when the natives tried to scared colonists away with masks. Now its pretty much just a show of a bunch of different masks, little and small. It was cool seeing all the different masks, there were cartoon characters, famous people and monsters. People in masks had dances and played a soccer game. It was really fun and I wanted to stay all night!
Driving through the town of Nambucca Heads we were stopped in our tracks by the mosiac street art/ bus stop in the center of this sleepy coastal town. We all piled out of the RV in amazement and started exploring.
The best part was that the mosaic wasn’t haphazardly constructed- it tells a story all the way through. We learned later that the mosaic is called “Fish & Chips” and was constructed by local artist Guy Crosley and a team of volunteers, school children and art students, started in 1996 and completed in 2000.
