Another stroke of luck brought me this great card from Selby in Swaziland, one of the smallest countries in Africa, with a population of only just over 1 million. The country takes its name from King Mswati II, who took control of the area in the late 1800s and was a ferocious warrior. Here you can see King Mswati III taking part in beautiful cultural traditions, which Selby tells me the Swazis are very proud of. In this dance, those women with red feathers on their heads are princesses. Fantastic card!
