「Vlog」Andean Llamerada dance in Carnival de Oruro in Brussels

I made a video of yesterday’s Carnival de Oruro in Brussels, the multicultural capital of Europe. The cultural center of Bolivia in Belgium invites the entire Bolivian and Latin American community to participate. The carnival parade gave us an insight of one of the largest and most unique Carnivals in the world: Carnival de Oruro.

Bolivia’s colorful Oruro Carnival comes to Brussels

Today I was in Brussels for the city’s first carnival parade: the Carnival de Oruro.

Oruro is a city in the center of Bolivia. When I visited Bolivia last year, I happened to stay in Oruro for a stopover and loved this little city. Back then locals kept telling me how wonderful the carnival in town is. Carnival de Oruro was originally an indigenous festival celebrated by Bolivian Uru population and was later transformed into a religious festival and the most important carnival in Bolivia. It’s also one of the biggest carnivals in South America.

First time meeting a Steemit friend in real life at Barcelona de La Mercè 2017 在巴塞罗那城市节第一次见到Steemit朋友!

Before I went to Barcelona, I posted a short announcement for meetup. I wasn’t so sure anyone would show up since I was also asking on different channels in Steemit chat, but it seemed that no one would really be in Barcelona for La Mercè festival. When I was almost sure I wouldn’t meet anyone. There was this girl @ojamajo contacting me, and we managed to meet up in the end.

It was interesting, although I love to introduce Steemit to friends and strangers, it was the first that I met Steemian in real life! Today I’m going to report a bit more about this 4-day city festival and my meetup experience.

去巴塞罗那玩之前,我发了个Meetup的公告,希望见到在巴塞罗那的Steemian朋友。结果到我出发的时候,也没有人回复我。我还在Steemit聊天室好几个频道也都问了,结果不巧,几个在西班牙的朋友也没有计划去要巴塞罗那。所以我也差不多失去了希望,觉得应该不会见到Steemit朋友了。结果到巴塞罗那的第二天,我刷了一下Steemit(论频繁在线的好处),发现巴塞罗那姑娘 @ojamajo联系了我。于是我们就愉快地约见面了。

虽然我喜欢介绍Steemit给朋友或者陌生人,但是跟Steemit上面的真人见面还算是头一遭,所以也是特别期待。今天我也借此在介绍更多的La Mercè节日传统给大家。
