Green Festivities

The latter half of Saturday was spent inside. Ironically, the experience was all about being ‘Green’. There are many inconsistencies at the festival and people/vendors with different perspectives on what in means to be ‘green’.

H St Festivities

Tuesday night and ‘Screaming Females’. It was a hasty decision, but sometimes the most unforeseen occurrences (black swan occurrences) are the most enjoyable. This one certainly was.
