Maasai children

Maasai childrenMany of the Maasai children dressed in second-hand clothes imported from Europe. Several wore inexpensive digital watches given to them by tourists.

These kids were barefoot (their compound floor was covered with cow dung), and had flies crawling all over their faces. But the flies here were nowhere near as bad as in rural Australia.

(From a 2002 trip to Kenya.)
