“Haha, you’re lopsided,” I said after seeing Raquel’s results from a free posture screening at the 2011 Sustainable Living Fair in Fort Collins. I probably shouldn’t have been laughing, however—I few moments later, I learned that I was quite lopsided too.
This was just one of the things we did at the fair. Sarah (visiting from California) and I rode bicycles over to the event location at Legacy Park and arrived a bit earlier than Raquel, so we ate lunch (including two orders of Ras-Ka Ethiopian cuisine for Sarah who despite her slenderness has always had a good appetite), helped plant a Cottonwood, and visit booths related to eco-friendly living. After Raquel arrived, we also listened to a little bit of live music while drinking locally micro-brewed beer.
Here’s a video I put together of the event. Next year I’d love to go to some of the workshops, browse the exhibits more thoroughly, and recheck my posture.
