Our performance at the State Fair in Albuquerque, New Mexico was successful. I enjoyed the company very much, and Okinawan people in Albuquerque were very friendly; it felt like being home in Okinawa.
There is also an annual baloon festival held in Albuquerque during October (which started today).I couldn't stay that long there, but went to a souvenier shop in Old Town and took some pictures of Baloons.
