Turkish night and dance of belly
First we put a great deal of food on our plates. Frankly speaking I has 3 plates even, so I at so much that then it was hard to stay and see dancing, but of course I did :-D
The show was built such way that group dances and single dances were mixed.
Turkish national dances. In the end of party when everyone was fed very good and wanted to move, girls and guys asked guests to dance with them and that was great show :-D I danced too…. woo hooo that was really fun
This girl dance the most part of party. Men were crazy from her :-) She made a competitions among them, closed their eyes and asked another man to do many things to another man pretending he was her hehehe….. what enjoyment we saw on the face of the guy whose eyes were closed and what disappointed he had when he understood that he was touched by another man ;-)
After dances she came to every table and danced as long as somebody among men put money to her dress and it didn’t matter to what place…..huh…. wherever you wish!!!)
See??? she is closer. Her bra and skirt is full with money. By bar’s rules all money is her and owner have no right to take it from her!!!! My neighbor was really happy to have her near himself ;-)
But I was amazed with dances of guy. Don’t think it was because I am girl…. no..no. He was really great!!! He was lissome and energetic. It is hard to explain. He cared a glass on his head and walking stick on his thighs and during this he danced and leaned his body such way, that not drop of water dropped to the ground and walking stick was still on its place….. it was Wonderful and Unique.
Then he went to every table and danced and danced as long as ladies put him money. lol…. ladies were more generous and brave to put money to his cloths.
Hey…. what do you think who is dancing with this guy??? of course me!!! How could I sit and only watch without moving. Do you see in his pants dollars?? one of them is mine… wow… I told him: “you dance greatly!” he told: “lets dance with me”, but in minute after dancing together he told: “do you wish to take my earning from me with your dances? Customers will pay to you” and he smiled. He was nice.
