Tonight I Went A Little Wild & Crazy

Tonight I went a little wild & crazy and it wasn't even my birthday!  It was J's birthday. To celebrate her first birthday in Niger she and her husband invited a Gourmanche musician to come play at her party. 
One drummer/singer...

turned into a mini-guitar player,

another drummer with a whole drum set - Nigerien style

and two accompanying dancers and singers.

Here's a little taste of the singing and dancing.

So I can't remember if the drinking or the dancing came first....
(Don't panic!  This is me we're talking about.)
Here I am drinking my first cup of Tuareg tea ever.  What?  Yep, I've lived here 9 years and it's the first time I've ever tried it.  I told you I went a little wild and crazy.
So then the dancing began and I only did that to be a good friend.  Never leave a friend on the dance floor alone!
It was all good until the twist began and that's when I let the birthday girl take over.
She killed it!
There you have it - wild, crazy & maybe a tiny bit more cultured.
