Also I will be there all day vending at The Turkish Store booth.

There'll be so many dancers from surrounding counties. A wonderfully diversified line-up is on the website:

I am looking for couple drums to buy.
- Ideally 1 new, 1 used.
- Darbukas preferred, but doumbek OK. No djembe or African influenced. Only middle-eastern.
- Don't like too many Egyptian motifs on the side of the drum. Usually the metal ones are my favorite.
- Skin or synthetic head does not matter.
- Nothing too expensive. ~$50 range +/-$15.

If you know there is a drum or two that satifies the classification above, let me know in pm.

Turns out that I got a reasonable performance slot at SAMEDA Faire to go there for a day and back and dance and take Rachel George workshop!!!!!
It's a full day, but belly dancing is an adventure. So, if there is anyone else who'd like to take up the challenge, I am driving and my schedule is as follows:

Leave Bako at 5 am.
Get to San Diego by 9 am.
Register and run into Rachel George workshop at 10 am.
Get out of the workshop and dress up and put on stage makeup to stomp on stage at ... read more
