A Matabetu ceremony!
|the bride NeNe|
|here she is making Nshima|
All was accompanied with laughter, singing and drums. The joy that was in the air yesterday was contagious. I even participated in dancing to the great amusement of all present. Shouts of MUZUNGU!!!!! (go white lady go!)
But it wasn't the anticipation of Nene's new life with her husband that struck a chord with me. It was the camaraderie I witnessed among these women. The singleness of purpose and the joy these ladies had in preparing for the big day was one that took my breath away.
|NeNe is learning how to make fire|
|She is cooking Mopani worms.|
