Marriage celebrations on our street

When Nettus and I went to work this afternoon, we stumbled upon some festivities going on in our street.

The younger brother of a friend of my brother (it's complicated, I know...) was getting married, and so the tent was up, and dancers had been hired for the occasion.

I didn't have the time to stay for long, but Nettus did, walking around with her camera and photographing the people.

It was a beautiful crowd, and as for all the people wearing the same tissue, that is one of the key issues in Niger which shows family unity.

At first I thought maybe those were the bridesmaid dresses:-) Beautiful celebration to stumble upon.
