I am telling you all this because I had an experience over the weekend that brought back other Kansas City childhood memories...of the American Royal, specifically. My Dad took Shaggy and I at least twice, and I remember the excitement of the rodeo. When I went back as a college student, it wasn't quite the same, but I enjoyed it nonetheless, so when Engrish told me how she'd seen an advertisement for the Thousand Foal Festival in Altanbulag this past Sunday, I was all for it.
It took quite a bit of doing to get the SoundCloud track embedded (I forgot how I did it when I came back from Tokyo in April), so I hope you enjoy it. The real fun begins around 9 seconds, although you can hear the herders on their motorcycles at the beginning.
I have a soul as black as night. Good thing I'm such a sucker for my kids or I might never redeem myself...
