The Red Bra

On our second trip in late 2009, the writer and I both noticed that the first bras had come into these villages.  This woman is holding her new bra out to dry after she has washed it by squirting water from her mouth onto it... She is trying to decide if she will wear it to the village dance tonight.  She decided not to...  The bras in these villages are not the result of missionary pressure.  The women look at them as a way to make themselves prettier for special events.
