Since there is a large park adjacent to that castle, I had the pleasure of feeling nicely soft grass underfoot. I adapted to the visitors (mostly either goth people or those dressed in medieval-style garb) by dressing in black, but still keeping up to my true name by wearing a black t-shirt with a Ganesha print on it. I had decked out all my toe nails in golden-glittery nail polish and was wearing my usual anklets and toe rings, too.
Here, I already tried wearing a bit of what I bought there as a possible new toe ring... more of my shopping booty later...
Of course, enjoying such a market also meant havign nice food and drink... the food part was covered by a typical Alsatian specialty: Flammekueche (the Alsatian pizza, so to speak) and for drinks I had several pints of mead beer (actually, regular beer with a large dash of mead in it... kind of risky in hot sunny weather, but I was fine).
|Flammekueche - Alsatian yummy stuff...|
|...and honey schnapps (called "Hammer" for a reason... I sampled it at the sales stand. And 60 per cent alcohol content makes it the only inflammable honey product I've tried so far...)|
|my newest rings...|
|two steel rings with pentagrams|
|A flexible glass pearl band, with a clump of rose quartz and amethyst bits (which can also be worn as a toe ring, as shown above).|
|A funky brass ring with a walnut-sized dome of gold and turquoise pearls|
|A nice naturally colored suede leather pouch.|
A nice barefoot Sunday day-out... and the market season has just started... the next one in my vicinity will be the "Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum" at Dortmund in about three weeks (June 16 & 17), also held in a park, therefore at another barefoot-friendly venue.
For that market, I will dress up more hippie-style, and certainly utilizing some of the nice goods I bought at Broich, too.
