The Indian Dancer

The Indian Dancer

This is Nigar Ahmed. She performed a few Indian dances during the Haninge Day celebrations at Lake Rudan on Saturday. Just as she was preparing for her performance the sound system died so I got a chance to talk to her and take this portrait while we waited for the problem to be fixed.

Did they have a vindaloo available?

de beaux habits traditionnels indiens.

No vindaloo, but there was a few places that served decent food.

The variety of people in small-toen Haninge is amazing

For some reason the picture wasn't loading for me. I clicked on the name and saw her on the Flickr page.

Nice shot.

The grand prize on most animals at the fair is a check in a large amount of money and with older beef cattle, the animal is auctioned off and goes to the highest bidder.

For an immature cow, like this one, I don't know what they get as their grand prize.

Companies bidding are like McDonald's and others and they get the right to show the animal in their ads.
