English Club Ceremony

So last night there was a big ceremony at the university put on by the English Club. This club gives students an opportunity to practice use outside the classroom doing things they want to do as opposed to what the teacher wants to do.

The festivities were scheduled to begin at 6:30 but in true Djiboutian form actually started closer to 7:45. What followed were speeches, poems in Arabic, Afar, English, and Somali. Traditional dancing and skits in Somali and English.  

Here's a clip of apparently traditional Afar dancing. EVERYONE should watch this video since it took like 30 minutes to upload with my crappy internet connection
