So Mrs LSWCHP insisted that we all troop off to the Silk Road Night Market gig at the museum this evening.
I think the museum staff must have expected a couple of hundred people to roll up on a cold Friday winters night, because it looks like that’s all they catered for. As it turned out, when we arrived about 7:30 it seemed like most of Canberra was also heading for the action, with miles of stalled traffic, cars going everywhere on the footpath, and heavy streams of foot traffic as far as the eye could see. I’ve seen Raiders games with smaller turnouts.
We walked around for a while, amazed at the giant crowd that had showed up for what could best be described as nothing much at all.
We’re all still a bit puzzled. What’s the scoop here? Did we completely miss the point of the show? Was there more to it than we thought?
