North Carolina

Yesterday we drove to Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We left around 7:30am and arrived at about 1:30pm. Ian juggled and I rested in the afternoon, and in the evening we went to the Ice Cream Social and then to see the Welcome Show. That was some pretty good juggling :) After that I was exhausted and went straight to bed. Ian juggled some more.

Today I went shopping at one of the local malls. Mostly I tried on dresses, because I like dresses, but I tried a few other things on, too. I bought a couple of non-dress items but that was it. If this non-spending keeps up, I won't reach my $750 in border-crossing allowance :) Luckily, I plan to shop tomorrow as well. I don't seriously plan to spend that much because I can't afford it but I do like trying things on.

This evening we went to the Junior showcase juggling and the Junior Competitions. Some stuff was boring but some of it was really, really good. I'm glad we went even though I was a little tired. There were some Japanese jugglers there who were really amazing!!!!! They were elegant and their moves were flowy and artistic... who thought that juggling could look so pretty?

In a few minutes we're going to go and see the Renegade show which is kind of like a juggling open mic night. Anyone can get up to perform. It's usually adult-oriented and it can either be funny or really, really bad. We'll see how this one goes :)
