Photos from this year’s Youth Day celebration. The highlight in my humble opinion? The women’s gardening group marching with their watering cans and acting out their gardening project during the parade.
Ollie (center front), my counterpart’s son, is the cutest. He practiced the songs all week and consistently kept getting them wrong.
Another of my counterpart’s sons (also Ollie’s older brother).

And of course, what would be a Youth Day without youth?
