Happy International Women's Day!!

I don't think International Women's Day is something that Americans ever celebrate, but in many other countries it's a huge holiday! Almost every woman here wears a ponya (not sure if that's how you spell it) which is a material that changes it's pattern every year. They're often made into a skirt, dress, pants, or even a shirt. Usually women's day is a day to recognize women's opinions and rights, but here in Cameroon it's a big party! There is a parade all day long, and following that, the dancing starts!! It was a great time with fun people! :)
