The Eid celebrations are coming to an end and Wow was it crazy! This year we were busy visiting and attending many of the celebrations here. Here are some photos of our crazy week:
watu wengi (many people)!! we actually had to step over people and kids to walk around! Crazy!
eating meat sticks and chips with friends we took it all in!
The next day we went visiting; a must during Eid!
visiting some friends (the family we stayed with when we first arrived here) we visited our Mama and Baba her on the island and they had brought a local outfit for Jason. Here he shows off his new kanzu (white gown) and kofia (hat). We had a great time chatting with them and they suggested that when the baby is born we name her after the Mama of the house and if the baby is a boy we select the Baba’s name. We told them we would take it into consideration but truthfully Fatima may not make our top 2 names list 🙂
After visiting we headed to the new park in town.
The playground area was finally open! Very exciting!
