Celtic-Ireland Pavilion Folklorama

After taking in the Ethiopian and German pavilions, two day ago, last night I took in only one pavilion. While taking in Folklorama has been very enjoyable, it’s also a bit tiring. I decided to check out the Celtic-Ireland Pavilion on Archibald. Celtic-Ireland Food Since I was going to only one pavilion, I decide to go whole hog on the food. I ordered two of the combination plates. The first one, which is a full meal is the banger platter.…Continue readingCeltic-Ireland Pavilion Folklorama

Cuban, Portugal Folklorama Tour

Yesterday I visited the Japanese and South Sudan Pavilions for Foklorama. In preparing to write the up I looked for connections. In the end the only connection that really sprang to mind is that they are both on the Number 17 bus route.
