March 8th marks a great day in history, International Womens Day! Here in my village the female teachers at the Lycee gathered to make food together and share recipes. We made fried rice, papaya salad, chicken, sautéed vegetables, and fried bananas. Then together we planted young mango and avocado trees in the Lycee’s garden- signifying the rebirth and rejuvenation of a new year!
Of course a Malagasy party doesn’t quite begin without dancing- so we had a fair share of music and traditional dancing.
