|The mentioned colours|
As expected, the happening was only being built up, so I decided to quickly and shortly visit a shopping center – ended up coming back with a full new party outfit :P My official explanation is that the wedding after two weeks are actually during autumn, and you cannot go into autumn wedding wearing summer party dress or can you? The shopping center was amazing; something never seen before; three floors of shops selling party dresses. So odd racks with other some trousers suits or coats, but then again boutique after another full of prettiness in the form of dresses, shoes, bags, jewelry… I am not a clothes / fashion freak (if I was, probably would have gotten a stroke in that mall, and after recovery a big black hole in wallet), but woman as I am, there just was not coming out without purchasing something. And a new dress demands compatible shoes and a purse, doesn’t it?
And when shopping is out of the way, then back to real business – the wine thing!
|Wine in all formats|
Zielona Gora area is the only producer of wine in Poland, and even there it is small industry. As supposed in fair, there were lots of stands selling all kinds of market stuff, but also wine as supposed. But not all stands had any Polish wine to offer – but why to let a detail like that bother? Wine fest is a fest whether the wine is local or not!
Wine was sold in bottles and also in glasses to taste that you are not buying “pig in a bag”. Size of the taste portion was surprising; I had a little moral discussion with myself when having a glass – or actually a plastic mug with 2 dl of wine in front of me, waiting to be consumed, and it wasn’t even noon yet... but where I come from, it’s not been a habit to misuse alcohol by throwing it away! Careful reader can here determine a reason why I cannot give comprehensive analysis of differences in locally produced or imported wines… ;)
|This is NOT because if the hugs wine portions; the houses really are curvy!|
On the evening there was a big concert by Radio Zet – silowna muzica, with mostly Polish but some in-ternational artists performing as well. Weirdest feeling when Polish artists were performing – standing in a huge crowd of people, everyone around me knowing the song and lyrics, and I having no idea of anything – sort of outsider but in positive way – good atmosphere is catching and does not need a language :)
|I have no idea what Star Wars and Wine Fest have to do with each other, but seemingly something.. May the force be with you!|
