This is at the 2008 Fish Festival in Guinea. My neighbor and I had matching outfits with colors of the Guinean flag that we had made for a previous festival. We had learned West African dance in the states and also in Guinea. We danced in front of thousands of people with the dance troop from Kankan, the regional capital. I like this photo because the smile on my face reminds me of how I was lost in the joy of the moment!
