Endurance is in culture. Culture may change during time but always a part of it will stay the same. These women and men are performing their old traditional dances in traditional outfits. Those parts of their swazi culture have endured for hundreds of years.

What a fascinating form of art clownery is! These clowns performing to Swazi schoolchildren belong to two organisations: Clowns Without Borders South Africa and Clowner utan Gränser (a Swedish NGO). I will get back to them later on in my blog and tell you more about what they do.
