BIg day. Before we started dancing we had a visit from the old man and his wife. First time we met his wife. She was very emotional. She gave us an important speech in finnish. It didn't matter if we understood or not. She hugged us. We took series of pictures together. Family pictures. She was almost crying. The old man is very humble. He shook our hands. People were back at their windows. I guess it had nothing to do with us but only because the sun was out. It always feels like we have audiences when it happens so it's nice. We don't know if we should wave to people or not. We don't want to be too pushy. Some of them we start to know quite well though. Next time we might try.
After our dance we wanted to drop the BlueGorilla messages we made the night before. In this letter we encourage our neighbours not only to send us the videos and photos they made of us, but to become the ones who document the project. We hope some of them will react. Unfortunately we did not manage, because the postboxes in Finland are situated on the doors directly. It would have been too much work with all our props, so we decided to try it again in the week end.
The main fruit lady was back. The young blond one. The one we know the best. Our secret friend. We got our first exchange: a smile. She followed us dancing again. She must be the one with the most videos about us.
We were invited to perform this evening for the opening of the Baltic sea film festival.
We danced an hour at the entrance of the cinema, where people were waiting in line. Olivia had an admirer who stayed around her for the whole time. We made quite of an impression. We were dancing in full sun. It was hard.
