Pecha Kucha at Rawlings Library

What a way to spend an evening. We went to our first Pecha Kucha which is a Japanese name for “chit chat’ and Pueblo is one of 700 cities worldwide who hosts such an event. 5 people got up and talked about various subjects. It’s 20 slides max @ 20 seconds per slide so it goes rather quickly, which is good. The topics can range from anything you like. The first speaker, Michael, was someone who’s been in conch blowing most of his life. Amazing what can be played on a conch shell. Then a really funny guy talked about Pueblo pros & cons, after that a lady spoke about “Take 5” and how to exercise or at least get moving for 5 minutes 5 times a day. After a break and munchies, beer + wine we heard a lady talk about co-op business, which frankly gave us ideas. Then up last was a young lady who spoke about “Pinterest” and all it does. Quite a fun time, followed by all of us and many others going to a friend of Louis Burke’s who hosted a desert night. Yummy! Many calories later we headed home.
