We went to the funeral of a friend's great grandmother in the small eastern Ghana town of Avenorpeme. It was an awesome, non-stop dance accompanied by many drums and shakeres. These girls were part of the contingent of participants representing older members of the family who were unable to attend in person. They were solemn but the gathering was joyous; the woman who had died was 103 years old so it was a celebration of her long life.
