This day was amazing. I worked almost the whole day at the Spiegel tent, which was part of the Bath Fringe. The whole day at the tent was set up to feel Romanian; there was food, alcohol and Romanian music in the background. It was amusing to see people trying new things, almost everything that was in the table, especially the strong Romanian liquor, which I tried and couldn’t believe how strong it was.
It started to get dark and Paprika Reloaded was getting ready to play. As it was a Romanian day, they were going to play traditional Romanian music, which meant gipsy music.
The band members were one Romanian tow Serbians and one British. When they started to play I couldn’t stop watching Bogdan Vacarescu, who played the violin. His fingers moved impossibly fast and the music was amazing.
The tent was rammed and everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves, and even though I was working I had an awesome time.
The best thing about this night was that it was unique from the start to the end, everyone that was there since the afternoon really got the sense if being in Romania and I think it will always be in their memories.
