Well, I’m still breathing after 3 whirlwind days at “Holland in Japan”, Huis Ten Bosch resort. A big storm is coming, fortunately I’m done for the day – today my 1st day of street performing, as mime and witch. 20 minute sets in the wilting humid heat are plenty. The staff is great – so friendly, helpful, cheerful – and cute.
This is a very pretty area, hilly with bamboo forests and rice paddies in between the houses, on the water – we’re very close to Korea here. I look forward to my first chance to explore. We each get a bike from the company, so being able to have 2 wheels is great for the little off time there is each day. There are performers here from Australia, Germany, Hungary (they all are here for Oktoberfest, in lederhosen etc), a Dutch juggler, and a couple other Americans. I’m the only female performer at present so I have the whole bottom floor of the girls’ dorm to myself. Verrrrry quiet!
