Drumming Beats in Les Gets

Here in Les Gets there are always lots of happenings, rather reminds me of a huge Club Med. Today when the pistes had shut down we were entertained in the newly constructed area by the ice rink (patinore) with the Marabunta drummers’ fiendish rhythms:



Rather reminded me of David’s Drummin Divas group in Cambridge although from what I remember there group doesn’t have such sexy dancers 🙁

To mark the end of today’s SNOW CARNIVAL GRAND PARADE we also had fireworks on the slopes.
