Alliance Women in Mali

Originally uploaded by alliancevideoblog.
Dressing alike is a big deal in West African culture. Each Christmas, the Alliance Women in Mali select a new fabric that sports the Alliance logo. It is manufactured in bulk and sent all across the country. We saw people all over West Africa (men and women) and even a few white folks from the States showing off their Christmas cloth outfits. Usually, i cringe when families dress alike, but in this context, it was kind of cool to see... I especially enjoyed it when the women gave josh his very own alliance women's cloth! Not sure why he got one and beryl and i did not :-)
