Glè mhath dha-rìreabh. Dè cho fad 's a bhios tu ann?
Very good indeed. How long will you be there?
Tha mi-fhìn a' dol gu geamaichean "Gàidhealtachd na h-Alba" ann an Chiba Didòmhnaich, 4 Dàmhair.
I'm going to the Scottish Highland Games in Chiba Sunday, 4 October.
Bha mi ann an uiridh is a' bhon uiridh, ach cha do shaoil mi gun robh iad cho gàidhealach sin ged a chòrd e rium bhith ann. Ge-tà, bha britheamh ann às an Eilean Sgitheanaich agus Gàidhlig aige bhon ghlùin. Bha esan na bhritheamh air farpais na pìobaireachd. Cuideachd, cuideigin a thàinig ann airson breith a thoirt air na dannsairean Iapanaich. B' iad dannsaichean a bha rud beag ro fhoirmeil dhomh fhèin, ach aig deireadh a' ghnothaich bha cothrom ann dhan luchd-amharc "strip the willow" a dhèanamh. 'S toigh leam "Strip the Willow", dannsa a thathas measail air ann an cèilidhean ann an Alba, ach a-rèir Wikipedia, 's e dannsa Sasannach a th' ann. Co-dhiù no co-dheth, chòrd e rium.
I was there last year and the year before, but I didn't feel that there was much Gaidhealach about them, although I enjoyed being there. However, there was a Gaelic-speaking judge there from Skye. He was judging the piping competition. Also, someone who had come there to judge the Japanese dancers. The dances were a bit too formal for my taste, but at the end, the spectators had the chance to take part in a "strip the willow". I like "Strip the Willow", and it's popular in ceilidhs in Scotland, but according to Wikipedia, it's actually an English folk dance. Anyway, I enjoyed it.
Dèan buil cheart de na fhuair thu!
