Christmas in Butartari - Dancing and Singing

Liz has wrote extensively about our Christmas ashore here.  Quite a Christmas with normal Fluenta traditions and an eight hour expedition ashore cross-legged in the Maneaba for Christmas mass and the dancing and singing competition.

Not a great picture but it gives an idea of the size of the Maneaba and how many people were there.
