Weekly Photo Challenge – Culture

26 Apr

We experienced a whole different culture when we went to a wedding in Senegal last year. This is the guests dancing after the ceremony which took place in a marquee on the roof

      I’d be very happy for you to repost that photo. We were in Dakar. I love the premise of your blog! Just toes, or feet! I have some beautiful baby feet photos! πŸ™‚

      Yes they do! The bursts of dancing only lasted a few minutes but they were SO energetic! πŸ™‚

    Cross cultural learning opens our mind to becoming a global citizen.
    Beautiful post indeed!

    It seems you have experienced a lot more “culture”…well, maybe not culture…but, people of different cultures… than I have or will…probably due to traveling…I envy that…Can’t help it!…

      We are very lucky in having family all over the world and now having a Senegalese daughter-in-law. I say ‘lucky’ – yes, in many ways, but I do miss being able to be with them all and to hug them properly. Skype is brilliant but not enough! πŸ™‚
