During the last months I did not find any new women with beard, that I did not know. I do not know so many women with a beard, about three in the US and four in Europe. So I was really delighted to hear about Balpreet Kaur. Chris did send me a link to an article about her. http://jezebel.com/5946643/reddit-users-attempt-to-shame-sikh-woman-get-righteously-schooled Thank you Chris!!
Someone had taken a photo of Balpreet Kaur without her permission, and I know this it often happens to me too, when I am in a public place people especially teenagers try to take photos of me with their cell phones and as the technical standard is getting better this is quite easy without me realising it, and so I guess also Balpreet did not notice. Then the person did post the photo and when Balpreet did hear this she wrote an amazing letter that touched me a lot. She is a wonderful person I think and I am glad that now I know that she is there! I would love to meet her one day! Here another link to a spanish article. And an Article from Balpreet in Kaurista.com .
I do not know how to ask for the permission to use these photos on my blog. If it is not ok let me know and I will remove them. Thank you.

On my way up to the north of Germany, I made a stop in the french Vosges. I visit a friend who is taking care of the goats for a week on a Woof farm. It is a beautiful landscape here and great for a relaxing time. On Woof farms there is always something to do and to support the people that live there. Usually you work some hours a day and get food and bed in exchange. Me I help by doing some cooking and cleaning.
The farm is very old around 16oo something. There are a lot of animals living here, goats, sheep, chicken that have little ones and also the peakocks have little ones….horses and other. They make goatcheese and grow vegetables for their own requirement. Even though the farm is alone in the countryside and it could be lonely, it is not, as there are always coming visitors, friends or Woofers. So it is very interesting to exchange and meet people from all over the world.
One thing that was very fascinating to me is the sink in the kitchen, very old and made of stone. The water runs down in a pipe outside the house and the chicken and geese pick out the food they find there in the wastewater running down. It gives me a feeling out of time and space. A time when life was different without machines….and I wish whenever I have a house to build a similar sink.
In the night you can hear the crickets and sometimes the call of the peacock. The call is a very special and beautiful sound. If you want to hear what it sounds like there is a link here.It is the call of the male peacock. HIER you can listen to it : http://www.soundarchiv.com in the Soundarchiv, there are all kind of sounds to listen to! I like that!

You can hire me for your festivals in Europe or other parts of the world, Australia would be great…..
I offer a stand in the style of a Medieval Tent – and a HUT around 1900 as on the markets at that time.
I exhibit myself as a bearded woman and show pictures of bearded women from the history and tell stories about them.
This is accompanied by palmreading and aurareading, if people wish to have a session they can have one and pay for it.
In the medieval tent there is no exhibition with photos, just a bearded lady doing readings.
Photos of the medieval tent will be on this side soon. Photos of the hut and a little video you can see down here:
If you want to contact me there is a mailadress in the contact above or just write a comment and I will come back to you. Thank you. Looking forward to hearing from you!
