May Day, Burundi-Style: A Parade, then Food, Drink and Fun

Finally, I have recouped most of my photos from another computer, and so post several pictures of the past May Day festivities as celebrated by staff of the Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika.

On the morning of May Day, a large parade takes place in the capital of Bujumbura in which a variety of enterprises – both public and private – take part.  The staff of each enterprise march in the parade; these photos are of the Hotel staff.  The banner, below, says “Work is key to the success of the Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika”:
