It was international pillow fight day and we headed out to the dam to catch a glimpse. I considered participating, but my lack of having my own pillow and any fighting skills prevented me from doing so. We followed a group of people carrying their own pillow and found a big group trying to knock each other out with their favourite sleeping aid.
We were surprised how long people seemed to be able to go on with the non-painful violence. Like they warned on the International Pillow Fight Day website, most pillows did seem to get broken and feathers, foam and other popular pillow fillings flowed out into the streets. About an hour later after we did some shopping we passed by the Dam and saw some of the participants sweeping up the pillow remains.
