I helped out at Red Butte Gardens on Saturday.
Getting there was an adventure. First off, it was raining hard. so it was kind of hard to see road signs as is. Secondly, I was driving somewhere I'd never driven before, so that was interesting. I had directions in one hand, trying to make sure that I was going the right place, and venturing to the opposite side of the valley. Thirdly, I was driving through a part of the freeway that people who have a lot of experience driving there get lost in. it was exciting, to say the least.
It was great fun, once I got there, and I ended up learning a lot. I ended up visiting Australia. We made Austrailian Mimi Dolls, based off the Aboriginal Mimi spirits. I learned they are spirits, and some are good, and help people learn to make fire, and to hunt Kangaroos. Some are bad, and ate people. We just made them out of cloths pins, but in real life, they are much bigger than that.
They also had some fun instruments. they had those cool wood frogs that sound like a real frog when you rub them. they had a digeridoo, too, which was fun. I tried to play it, and it sounded okay. not like it really should. i could get it sounding kind of right, but it didn't sound at all like it should.
Overall, it was a blast. I wish I was able to help out more of the days. Sadly, I'm working nights, and this does, of course, take place at night.
