Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

3 May

I have to admit these photographs are kind of old. However, they have never been published before now so I am using them anyway. While I was in college I was lucky enough to go on a fantastic overseas program with Lewis & Clark College to Kenya and Tanzania. We left at the beginning of September of 2001 and spent 2 weeks learning Swahili 8 hours a day in Kilifi, Kenya while taking side trips here and there. We were given the privilege of seeing a group of dancers and drummers. It was a lot of fun to watch and listen.

One of the things I really enjoyed while on the coast was watching the sun come up and the fishermen come out and set up their sail boats to fish. The light was always so great and the boats so beautiful.
