Somewhere in Rotterdam, 16:45

 
 

I have just sat in the pouring rain watching a community opera that I would rank as one of the best experiences I have had for years. The fact that I sat in the rain, wrapped in an ineffectual plastic poncho only made the experience better.

The festival takes place in three venues. We get back on a bus to return to the main hub where we will receive our next meal.

The bus that arrives has big signs saying Party Liner. We get on. The bus has laser lights, smoke machines, and loud loud disco music.

We do not talk. We sit pinned to our seats giggling.

Time passes.
