Kate helped me dress for the evening in the traditional gomesi. There are different styles of these dresses depending on the occasion but the fancy ones have up to 6 metres of material that is folded and worn with a wide sash.
For our meal we all sat on mats on the floor except for the 'father' who is given the place of honour on a chair. The 'mother' serves food first to the father and then to the children. Makoote (steamed bananas), gnut/mushroom sauce, yam, chicken and beef were all eaten with our fingers
Following the meal we were treated to traditional dancing and drumming.
A memorable evening of celebration.
