More Sallah photos

The Eid el-Kabir experience was a fun one. I am really enjoying the opportunity to gain even a small appreciation for this rich and beautiful culture.

By the way, I think I need more of these outfits. Kelli identified it as a gare, but I liked the name I found on Wikipedia which is "Grand Boubou" (pronounced Boo Boo).

Anyway, here are some pictures I took at the Palace. As part of the Durbar, the tribal leaders ride up to His Majesty the Lamido, shake traditional weapons in the air and pledge their allegiance.

The guys in red are the Palace Guards. I REALLY want to get me one of those!
