The monthly travelogue was last night. I’m not sure why these first programs have deviated from the first Friday time slot but remembering to turn up for them has been a bit of a problem. I think this was considered the November program because there isn’t one now until December. In other years, the December program was open to “guests” but nothing was said about that last night.
The program was on Hawaii and other Pacific islands. Maybe I was just too tired to enjoy it. I found after a bit that one island looked much like all the other islands. If it was the result of a volcanic eruption, there would be mountains in the middle with a bit of beach around the outsides. The presenter was a woman who I found difficult to understand as she tried to wrap her tongue around all the vowels in the various island names. She concentrated more on flowers and hiking trails than anything else. That’s probably why all the islands looked the same to me.
I was left with a question, though. In the few places where she included pictures of native dancers, the women all did similar dances even if they were on a different island. The dances involved a lot of hip movement. I’m wondering why that’s a common manuver between the various dancers. I’d also like to know how the women do it. It appears to me that they have a joint I don’t have because there is no way I can move like that.
