African Party

Last Saturday we threw a big African party in honor of Sheik. I think in total there were over thirty people there from seven different countries, with all sorts of food and music and dancing. It was good times! Here are some photos, taken from Sheik's camera.

Kendall with all his African homeboys... I think he secretly loves being the Big White Man.

The woman in the gold bubu is from Guinea. She and her sister-in-law were dressed to the hilt--they were so beautiful with their hats and gold jewelry. The other woman (unfortunately not pictured) actually ran into her prom date from Guinea who had come with another friend. Both just happened to be in America, in Washington, D.C. visiting. Talk about a small world!

Sheik returned to Guinea last night. We will miss him, his bright African shirts, and his kind, gentle ways. Alhamdulilah!

How crazy that the prom dates found each other in DC. If DC is the place to run into old prom dates, I might not go back again.

I love the multi-cultural life you have come to live. You've come a long way, Utah! :)
