Multiculturalism is at it again

Being a foreigner, it’s not so bad when the semester of uni is starting, or has started, because you’re not the only one surrounded by your family, taking pictures of almost everything in Birmingham. Every building, structure, colour and opportunity.

The language, on the other hand, is something no foreigner can possibly prepare for. It’s a “dialect”, but to you, it’s a completely different language.

But to have a team of classical indian dancers, with capoeira dancers and contemporary/urban dancers using the fountain at Victoria Square as their canvas, on a sunny friday, is surreal. How wierd it must be to have so many cultures cramped into one city?

I have to say, it was this live stage performance that represents Birmingham in a nutshell. It was such a beautiful performance, and the music was incredible. I wonder where they were from?
