Boran wedding dance

Boran wedding dance

A few years ago, I had the great pleasure of being one of the three Best Men at a friend’s wedding in Isiolo, Kenya. He is an American who married into the Boran community (a major pastoral group in northern Kenya) complete with all the cultural trimmings that goes with such a celebration. Here is the bride being made the object of a special Boran dance by her friends and family. It was a riotous evening where, as a Best Man, I was responsible for preventing gate crashers and drunken accidents, and spreading general merriment among the local populace.
