Dancing

My new year just ok. Really the first date of the new year was so so – I worked a lot. I was grateful because I woke up in the morning and was very happy to be alone. Really, I had not wanted to go anywhere, I didn’t even go for the service.

My new year just ok. Really the first date of the new year was so so – I worked a lot. I was grateful because I woke up in the morning and was very happy to be alone. Really, I had not wanted to go anywhere, I didn’t even go for the service. Because I was alone, I was mama and was just with the young kids. So I woke up and I started work in the kitchen. After lunch time I started washing my clothes and I completed that around five in the evening.

Then, I had a call from my brother inviting me to go somewhere to refresh my mind. We went to a bar called Wanglengo. We took my brother and his wife and some of his friends and our relatives were also there. We were there a long time - it was almost midnight when we departed for home.

I only drank soda, but I was enjoying how everyone behaved because they were drunk. Staying with the drunkard people is sometimes so good, especially when they’re funny! So me, I was laughing and laughing. Sometimes I would go and dance - when I heard a new song or a nice song. But when I wasn’t dancing I was with my family.

I like traditional Echoli dance and I can dance really well. I learned it from school, because in the primary level they teach children how to do cultural dance. Schools compete from the palace level to the sub-county level then district level and national level. We came first when I was in my former primary school.
