The Rhythm of Life: Dancing to a Healthy Beat Festival was very fun. The whole day was a free concert, many bands, some acting troops, and other entertainment. It was sponsored in part by USAID, so there was also a tent with all sorts of information, lots of free pamphlets and booklets, which will be great tools when teaching the kids.
We sat and listened to the music all morning. Curtis was teaching Shelly how to use our mini-video camera and I taught her how to use the camera – she thought they were both pretty cool. We took a break for lunch and were walking towards the food vendors when all of a sudden Shelly turned to me in a panic and said “where is the camera, I need the camera, where is it?” I was so confused and told her I had it and she could play with it again after lunch…she persisted and seemed very urgent – so I gave it to her. She started taking pictures of these two, young, good looking men. I asked her if she knew them, and she said she did and they suggested I take a picture with them, her, and Samuel, so I did. Apparently these two men are the Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt of
The first picture is me (as per my parents’ request) with Shelly and Samuel. Shelly got her face painted at one of the booths – it was a festival after all!
The second picture is Shelly and Samuel with the two famous guys (I still didn’t get their names).
