I hope these things cheer you up or make you smile. They certainly made my day better when I found them.

Bulgaria’s Kooky Kukeri Festival

Each year, people across Bulgaria gather in Blagoevgrad to partake in the annual Kukeri Festival. Draped in elaborate costumes made from long goat hair, participants dance away the evil through a procession involving the ringing of bells. Dancers wear carved wooden masks that depict the faces of beasts and jump in a centuries-old ritual intended to drive away evil spirits. Desislava Ilieva started attending festivals as a child and now continues to uphold her family’s tradition by wearing costumes handmade by her father.

    1. Yeah I thought that too, it is in a way kind of creepy hehe. First thing I thought was…what if he got trapped inside when he was still alive! 😲 I am glad you enjoyed this post Jeremy and hope you’re having a good weekend so far 😊


    1. Yeah stunning isn’t it…I love these autumn colours. The way the trees look in Japan and all of these colors are magical. I tried to capture this energy a bit in my video I took last year in Kyoto of a temple and park there. The main thing that I remember vividly is the hushed peacefulness of the gardens – everything moves slowly, it puts you into a trance there and you don’t want to ever leave https://youtu.be/Ic-hTas7iQ4
