There's hundreds of kids at the Arch right now, screaming their heads off and being chased by a man dressed up as a lion. There's hundreds more at LP (the first Ice Cream shop in The Gambia), and along West Field / Kairaba avenue. They've saved up money all through the Ramadan, plus the money they got from relatives today, and now they're out to spend it and have a good time.
Imagine a hundred kids descending on a building which can at most fit about 30 people (and even then it's a tight fit). Imagine hundreds of them milling outside, the odd 20 or so getting in, the rest walking up and down Kairaba Avenue, down one of the busiest highways in the country (add cars to your mental picture - lots of cars), at night, in a dark lit by a few street-lights, and you've about got it right. Just mix in noise and chaos.
