    Beware the Belly Dancers

    by DSwede Updated Nov 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OK, so I'm going to confess and get this out there... I had to belly dance in Turkey. Not that I'm shy or easily embarrassed, but with that many on-lookers and peer pressure, it could be too much for some people.

    If you go to one of the traditional dinners with a dance shows in the underground restaurants, most likely one of the dances will be a belly dancer. That is perfectly acceptable and entertaining. However, if you happen to be like me, the token foreigner in a full room of Turkish people, being selected at "random" to assist on stage may not actually be as "random" as you think.

    So, I had to strip partially down and dance side by side with the belly dancer, imitating her moves. Hopefully none of the truly incriminating parts of that made it to the internet. But on the good side, at least for the next three days, I was an instant celebrity everywhere I went because all the other tours that were at the restaurant continued to cross paths with me.

    Just be aware that if you are a foreigner, you may be "randomly" selected to get up on stage and make an *ss of yourself for the entertainment of all. Do what you must, either have the courage to do it, or run and hide before the show starts...

    Yes, that's me with a belly dancer...
