I loved the three hour drive from Seattle to Portland, Oregon. The weather was fine, the traffic was low and the tall thick coniferous trees lined along the road made me feel cozy and delighted my senses.
Above all I was journeying with my son Jafar, his wife Tehmina and my grandchildren Yameena and Serena to spend a lovely weekend with them. In addition, Aamir and Nehal had joined us with their families. On arrival we headed for the world known rose garden to spend the afternoon there. The rose garden will find space in a future Part of my write up.
Let me here share my next day’s experience at the Pioneer CourtHouse site. It was a beautiful day so we walked for a good 15 minutes for breakfast at the restaurant which was close to the CourtHouse. While the rest queued up in the line I and Serena stepped down and sat in the chairs in the open space, to relax.
We were enjoying our solitude amongst the gathering, when my eyes caught a rather awkward spectacle. I got up and captured it in the video through my camera.
To find these colorful semi clad ladies tottering in the crowd aroused my curiosity. I approached them and spoke to one of them. Sharing the video.
I showed the interview to Yameena and Serena and they liked it. For a considerable period the ladies continued with their rehearsals.
Finally they decided to perform their dance with music.
Was it my lucky day?
