I decided to take the train to church instead of bicycling today. That meant I walked from the Kotesashi station about a kilometer to church. On the way I noticed that they were beginning to set up for a festival of sorts. It looked like the stores had booths or tables out on the street. The traffic was blocked off. There was a part of the street where they had live entertainment. It was maybe 2 blocks long, but neat to walk through after church this morning.
|Found the YMCA! Not that I'd need it...|
|One end of the blocked off street.|
|Here's one of the entertainers. You can't see him, he's waving that huge red and white flag.|
|They were a part of the show.|
|Guess who set this part up?|
|Firetrucks are interesting no matter what country!|
After picking up something to eat, I hopped on the train back home. I decided to pick up a couple of things at a grocery store, Ozam. Every once in a while I run across items that remind me of different places, where I have lived. This is one of those items.
I remember Orangina is one of those drinks that was pretty special when I lived in Coté d'Ivoire. I bought one.
It has been a good weekend, a time of remembering Christ's death on the cross and celebrating Christ's resurrection! He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed!
