Here in Mayotte, at the end of the year, each elementary school has a big fête, the highlight of which is every class performing a dance (I would say that it is always traditional, except I heard Shakira played at the one I attended) in their assorted costumes. My neighbor, Sakina, asked me to take pictures of her daughter. Once there, she also asked that I photograph her niece and a friend's child. Then other neighbors and sisters of neighbors saw me with the camera and it was snap, snap, snap. Bless digital cameras...
