The Gambian Reception 3
-
As the evening drew to a close and after the majority of guests departed, the ladies who had been working so hard over the previous two days to prepare and serve all the food .. let their hair down and the dancing began. Wild scenes ensued, accompanied at first by Mariame drumming on an upturned bowl .. until the others realised that by being the drummer, Mariame was purposely escaping the actual dancing. Her friends took care of that, as the following pictures show !

Their smiles say it all .. it was a fitting end to our wedding.

Our grateful thanks to all our friends and family who contributed so much help
in making our celebrations in Sénégal and The Gambia so successful and enjoyable.
