Independance day in this country is December 1st, but the local authorities decided that it should be celebrated on the 11th for reasons unknown to the general population. What they say goes, so the parade happened a week and a half late. Here are some photos of the ag project, CEFA’s, entry in the parade. The silhouette with the military hat is the “sub-governor” of the region. Roy’s group presented fruit and seedlings to the dignitaries. There were umpteen groups of schoolkids and women’s groups and church groups and health groups, lots of marchers in matching tshirts or patterned outfits. There actually were a few silly clowns, a bicycle stunt man, with the ending climax being a bunch of motorcyclists doing tricks and driving way too fast into the crowd which had oozed onto the road just beyond the grandstands.
