Baby Naming Ceremony Videos

I’m back to electricity, but anxious to get back to my village, so here are some short (translate more tolerable to upload) videos of a baby naming ceremony dancing event. My village loves to dance!

Current emotional state: In love with the village Khonk Yoye: the cultivated, rolling landscape. the rhythm of life. the vegetable-laden food. the sweet well water and sweeter foamy tea. cold nights and windy hills. long, isolated runs dodging thorny branches. And most of all, most inexpressibly of all, the people I love here. I can’t imagine leaving.

Feeling bewildered by how lucky my life has turned out to be.
