Carol takes me to the centre of the community where they are all dressed in their traditional clothes. In his address, the headman explains that they have prepared a programme and they will dance for me. I am slightly shocked because I didn’t expect it. The evening turns out excellently. We laugh a lot. In the end, I dance, too. Dances relate to the imitating of animals, so each dance is named after a certain animal, such as the Butterfly dance, the Eagle dance, the Fish dance, etc.
