I'm as pure Afrikaans made as they get a.k.a a real European cocktail.
here in the USA everybody seems to find their long lost Irish roots on St. Paddy's day. I guess not only in the USA...but I went to the parade and drank green beer, so that counts right?
My first parade! I was excited. Strangely not my first green beer.
The parade started off pretty much what you'd expect from any St. Paddy's day parade:
(and I've come to expect so much after all these parade-less years)
|In South Africa we have guys selling flags and such at traffic lights before anything eventful, everybody knows this. Here they have carts and this lovely man.|
|There were bagpipes, obviously|
|Irish people in green cars|
|Lord of the Dance back-up dancers with long red hair|
|Irish balloons, obviously|
|more Irish people|
|more bagpipes.... obviously|
|and green everything, because you know! Ireland!|
Then things started to get weird:
|beauty queens,not that it's weird, just, you know! Ireland!|
|then these guys showed up, as they would|
|1st WEEKEND OF OCTOBER! DON'T FORGET!|
|this one goes out to my little sister, also, it's a dinosaur, a green dinosaur!|
|my lady considering some sushi...|
|hugs not drugs, right on kiddo|
|i... i got nothing.|
|rugby! but just not|
|still... i got nothing.|
You guys, it was fun.
One of those, 'happy to be here in the strange land of the US with their strange ways' days.
I know, I know, it really isn't all that strange is it?
