Turkana entertainment dance

Turkana entertainment dance

This photo was taken at a night-time entertainment dance near Loiyangalani, on the east side of the lake. As is obvious, there was no flash for the camera, so please forgive the picture quality (the light is from the beams of a truck). Incidentally, I got waylaid by toddlers for much of the night, who made rather lovely drawings in my notebook - see here to see the results!
