Garapan Thursday Night Street Market

Carolinian Dancers performing at the Garapan Thursday Night Street Market in April:

The dancers start singing in Carolinian at about 1:14 in this 3 minute video. Those of you who don't live on Saipan don't get to hear Carolinian spoken too often, so please listen and tell me what you think. Also, if I'm totally wrong and they're not speaking Carolinian, please let me know, too.

There is usually some type of entertainment going on down there, whether it be some local artist, local cultural group, or off-island whatever. It wouldn't be a bad place to take the kids, ne?. The food is cheap and the entertainment is free. What more could you ask for?

I have a hodge podge of photos taken from the various Thursday Street Markets that I've gone to since I've been back in Saipan. I've been meaning to post them. I'm going to upload some of those pictures in the next week or so (I swear!), but in the meantime please enjoy this video, which I shot last month.
