LIVING IN THE BUSH
We pitched our tents in an acacia thorn bush enclosure the Maasai people had prepared for us. This was to keep curious kids,goats and the hyeneas out. We were between Pastor Simons and Mama Joyces' mud and dung homes. The home pictured is where we ate dinner every night.
Their dinner time is about 9pm and consisted of rice, potatoes and cabbage. Once in a while we had some fresh peas thrown in.
Playing catch and frisbee with the children from the area.
Hubby having a conversation with one of the kids. As you can see, there isn't much wood to construct their homes.
A wild game of frisbee. Note the Maasai men in the far left of picture in their traditional dress.
It was after 5pm when these pictures were taken so I'm afraid they are a bit dark.
Enlarging each pix will show everything more clearly.
