DANCING

IN NIGERIA NIGERIAN DANCING IS SOMETHING TO BE SEEN. UPON ARRIVING AT THE
VILLAGE, QUEENS TOWN VILLAGE, RIVERSTATE, NIGERIA, I SAW ALL THE
GIRLS IN A BENT OVER POSITION STOMPING THEIR FEET INTO THE GROUND
AND CHANTING A SONG. THEY HAD IN EACH HAND A WHITE HANDKERCHIEF
AND SOMETHING LIKE SHELLS ON EACH ANKLE. THEY EMPHASIZED
THEIR BUTTOCKS BY STICKING THEM OUT AND WIGGLING THEM.
THE STEPS ARE VARIED AND HARD TO CATCH ON TO.
