The Daily Allyndreth – 17 June 2015 (Istanbul Day 3: Whirling Dervishes)

Today we saw the Whirling Dervishes which were interesting and their feet were amazingly steady, but the music was tiring. I almost fell asleep multiple times so they decided to help me out and showed a belly dance! The belly dancer showed off her belly in very upbeat dancing and it definitely worked to wake all of the (men) people up. After it was done, everyone was stuffed and we walked home discussing the belly dancing. The dancing was kind of like hula dancing set to 21st century pop music and there was arm movement up more than out. She used her hips a lot for parts that had noticeable rhythm. Here’s a picture!
