Nane: Celebrating Agriculture

August 8th is a national holiday here: NaneNane, celebrating farmers and Agriculture. There are numerous what we used to call 'country fairs', but the biggest exhibit is in Morogoro at a fairgrounds developed for the purpose. In size (8 square kilometres, with each exhibitor growing its own gardens, and many with concrete halls) and attendance (millions over ten days), it is similar to the Pacific and Canadian National Exhibitions. (Playland excluded! though there was one big mechanical ride, and two overworked camels.)
