salmon arm

spent the weekend in salmon arm for the roots and blues festival. the music (grady, serena ryder, chad van gaalen, johnny winter, Dr. John, Sam Roberts, Bedouin Soundclash, Cedric Burnside, Ana Popovic) was great, but i was an even bigger fan of the festival food...including the Doritos bag of tacos, the Wrap Daddy wraps, the corn, the mini-donuts...

even though it rained all day, it was still a lovely view to see the mountains behind the stage. you could see the remnants of the forest fires from years ago, scorched tree trunks on the mountain peaks. and folks are all friendly. someone asked me if they could take a picture of me for their fashion blog - which i assume was for the What Not To Wear section. this was my favourite conversation:

hi, where are you from?
oh, so where did you get the ethnic look?
the ethnic look?
yeah, the ethnic look.
uh, i was born with it, i guess.
no, you know what i mean...where are you from?
oh, well, my parents are from korea.
oh yeah! you mean, like karate kid?
