2012 marks the 35th year of the Willy St. Fair. A fund raising event for the Common Wealth Development and the Wilmar Neighborhood Center (organizations to help communities). Its held around the second or third week of September each year. I was glad to be present for this year.  The day was beautiful, there were 8 music stands, lots of art and craft, food, music and of course bear – its Wisconsin after all – beer is essential food in addition to cheese and good ice cream.

First week in Madison

16 Sep

If you can not be in New York or Washington, Madison is the place for you.  Everyone wears  their politics in this town (t-shirts, banners, stickers, yard sale posters) what ever it takes, people are out there letting you know what they believe in.  In addition,  there is the art scene and the music scene, not to mention all the academic study centers.

If you have to live in Madison, Williamson street is the street to be.  The   neighborhood holds four festivals during the season, number of  restaurants, a coop, a theater and 20 minutes walks from the capital.

My first week here in pictures. Music festival, tennis, visit to the dacha and much more
