From morning till evening there was a lot of activity at the STB stand. I was proud that the huge stand was mostly "wallpapered" with my photographs. Hundreds of visitors already on the first day of the fair let themselves be photographed by the photographer in front of the huge picture of giant tortoise Esmeralda (the largest giant tortoise in the world, which even made it into the Guinness Book of Records due to its size and body weight!) and our son Tom and got a printout of the photo afterwards. So it can be assumed that Tom is now standing or hanging in hundreds of living rooms.
in any case, it hangs particularly large in the entrance area of the fair, as the photos below impressively show. i was almost bursting with pride and joy when i first entered the hall: an XXXXL tom! and more of my pictures hang in "exaggeratedly large" in the fair halls. there, my smaller photographs, which the fair visitors already receive outside the hall, can soon be checked off under "ferner ran"... 😉
in the evening we all had a very good meal together in the "forest economy". but thanks to the instruments they brought along, the seychelloise turned the meal into a spontaneous party, which didn't keep anybody on their seats. the restaurant was spontaneously transformed into a dance floor. the atmosphere was simply gigantic!
For almost two hours there was music, dancing, singing and laughing. Unbelievable! "we Germans" would never manage to do something like that in this form. The Creole joie de vivre is simply spectacular! Even the landlord just stood there, grinning stunned and shaking his head in disbelief. Forgive me, but I had to promise that the pictures of this evening "Creole party" would remain under lock and key... 😉
And now it's time to switch off the computer and put the suitcase in the car, because in less than four hours our plane to the Seychelles will take off and in April I will present you new photos of the upcoming Weddings in the Seychelles! 😀
