The Vaipa
After the cultural show came the party: village style. The vaipa is a dance that everyone joins in with, a little like a barn dance. You interlock arms with the persons on each side of you, and jump up and down… for hours… or sometimes days! Here Jesse is head and shoulders above his school friends. [see An Independent Country and other Independence Day photos: Independence Day at the College, Independence Day at the School and Independence Day bikman].
In this photo both Jesse and Keren are starting to show the strain of jumping up and down for hours for the second day running (though Gerard still looks full of energy).
