Travel fair in Pilsen and Daruma dolls
Greetings from Pilsen !!!
Tomorrow is Tuesday 28th October the 90th anniversary of independent Czechoslovakia foundation so everyone in Czech is celebrating or at least having a relax :)
Travel fair is known as a traditional even of Pilsen ,It is held annually .The meaning of this even is to show the visitors the interesting places of Pilsen region.I have been to this one a lot of times and just don't want to go there again but something very special was happening there so for that I decided to see it once again .Experiences are never enough =)).My friend said me that there were also another cities from abroad ,those cities are knowns as sister cities of Pilsen region.
Guess which ones were???? Limoges ,Resensburg and one from Japan Takasaki.There were also some from Slovakia,Hungary and so on.The organizers gave the visitors a lot of good information .Takasaki attracted me the most I just can't describe how nice that city is ! I got from there the doll called Daruma doll.It's one of those things that bring us good luck.It has no arms ,no legs ^_^
Typical colors are red (most common), yellow, green, and white. The doll has a face with a mustache and beard, but its eyes only contain the color white. I really love those contrarieties .Using black ink, one fills in a single circular eye while thinking of a wish. Should the wish later come true, the second eye is filled in. It is traditional to fill in the right eye first; the left eye is left blank until the wish is fulfilled.
Many of the Daruma dolls are male but there is a female daruma doll. It is called "ehime daruma" or "princess daruma."
Bye for now
