What do I do on a Saturday?

I know, I know... I need to add more pictures to my blog. I took one today of my activities, just for your viewing pleasure.

This afternoon I met with some friends, and we played drums in a parking lot in preparation for an upcoming multi-cultural event at the School of Social Work. Alejandro (on the left) is Puerto Rican, and is really passionate about a festive dance called the "bomba", so Kelly and I volunteered to learn his magic so that he would have a complete group of players for Harambee. It took a while to get used to the beat and learn enough steps that we can improvise the dance, but digging into the culture was great. Kelly is Cuban, so maybe next time we will... smoke cigars?
