After getting a ticket I took an escalator down one level and was immediately in the Cafe. Many groups representing countries or culture have booths selling food. It was 12:30 pm so I was interested.
Here is the Hungarian booth and not to any surprise, one dish was gulyas.
I enjoyed seeing the hats that are prominent in many cultures.
I wandered about until I got to Norway and got a rice pudding with lingonberries. This is one of my favorite ethnic foods, even though I'm not a bit Norwegian. Actually began eating this at the Norway Pavilion at Disney World!
Then another turn around the cafe and I stopped at the Polish booth.
My next stop was the bazaar. Below is a photo of the Ghana booth, largely clothing.
And here is a long video of a group of Polish dancers from the Kashubian area. The narration for this dance explained it represents the sea; the Kashubians live close to or on the Baltic.
After watching dancing for more than an hour, I went to the booths showing simply culture -- nothing to sell.
I kept looking and looking for the Romanian booth.
It was now about 4:00 and I was a bit hungry so I went back to the food booth area and got a kielbasa. Oh, it was good!
I had good intentions of watching more musicians and dancers but I was really on stimulus overload and decided after 6 hours to walk back home.
Outdoors it seemed like the world had changed. The sun was out and the breeze was warm.
My path towards home takes me to the Science Museum Plaza. Here I found a wedding party gathering for a photo.
