Last night I went and saw the closing night of the Nova Scotia International Tattoo. The last time I saw it was two or three years ago, and I was hoping that it wasn’t going to be exactly the same and I was quite surprised at how different a lot of it was. I was totally into it the whole time. Some of the acts were the same but those were the good ones like the Julian Bicycle Team from the Netherlands. And the best part of it all was the fact that we were able to go for only $10 each. Apparently the last show has a special student rate - $10 where the normal price is more like $30. Of course we had to sit in the ‘cheaper’ seats, but these were still nice seats in the lower bowl really close to the stage.

Anyone who hasn’t been to the Tattoo in a while - it is too late this year, but I would recommend taking it in again - it is quite a show. And for those people who haven’t seen it - you don’t know what you are missing.
