Radovan dances the Pidiktos!

That's Radovan jumping out of the frame while these three lady dancers are busy watching my husband take the photo. They are not even near the Acropolis, but were dancing in front of a canvas backdrop! The dance is called the pidiktos, and of course, Radovan wanted to give it a try, and swapped costumes briefly with one of the male dancers.
These typical little Greek pom-pom shoes are called tsarouhia, but Radovan still prefers his Serbian opanci (OH-pahn-tsee), although we offered to buy him a pair of these colorful ones. He's afraid the pom-poms would get too dusty or that his goat back home would nibble on them.

Radovan sure is getting around, experiencing a sample of Greek culture! Quite agile as well.

This is a great shot. I love how the women are distracted and don't seem to notice the dancer!

The first image looks just like a painting! It's stunning! It's good that Raddie is keeping his goat on a strict pom pom free diet!

Goats do tend to nibble.

These tsarouhia have always made me giggle a little, but they are so detailed and colorful.

Wow, Radovan is very lucky, I think he had a good vacation in Greece!!

Jumping out the frame of shot was an excellent way to emphasise the lively dance. I'm sure the ladies were also distracted by the dashing Mr Radovan.

I had a good time following Radovan's first trip overseas tour. This is a wonderful concept. You can turn it into a children story book with Radovan as the main character!

I forgot to mention I love those pom pom shoes.

And the pix of the dancers...especially the leaping male dancer is brilliant! Even though he was chopped off on the head but his leap was real high. It also amazed me that he couldn't win the attention of the girls despite his high leap!! Ha ha ha...your hubby's camera is more attractive to those girls!
