Watane Ichi #11

Filed under: — Andy @ 12:53 am

Watane Market #11, again Suzuna set up shop and sold her herbal teas and handmade soaps. It was a nice and sunny day but also very windy so a lot of the sellers packed inside to set up shop. As always there was good food and music and other performances. Melina enjoyed herself as well and spent the entire time running around and playing with various things. One of her favorites was fishing colorful balls and toys out of a big vat of water. Unfortunately we missed #10, but are looking forward to going to #12.

Watane Ichi #5

Filed under: — Andy @ 10:52 pm

It is spring and time for another Watane Ichi. This time Suzuna also set up her own shop and sold her handmade soaps, bath salts, and herb teas. There didnt seem to be as many customers this time so business was not great, but we still had a good time eating lots of foods, and enjoying the performances.

Although I missed the third one the forth Watane Ichi was just as fun as the first two. This time I went with a few other members of my house. I made yet another hemp accessory and also enjoyed an Ayurveda massage.

Watane Ichi #2

The second Watane Market was very similar to the first one with many of the same booths and workshops yet still just as interesting. This time I brought along my girlfriend… We made our own plates, ate the delicious foods, did some yoga, and also made another hemp bracelet.

Watane Market

Filed under: — Andy @ 1:54 am

One of my friends invited me to a very small outdoor festival/market. With an emphasis on natural food and items and almost a hippie atmosphere, there were various bands, foods, and booths where you could try making some items with your own hands. I spent the entire afternoon carving my own spoon, making my own hemp bracelet, eating some good foods, and listening to different varieties of music.

Someone was also playing the didgeridoo
