Sorry for the long silence! I have decided to post little updates in order to stay in communication. I am working in an amazing camp called “Cottars 1920’s camp” as the Camp Manager (Relief).
A quick explanation: Many Maasia are the Askaris (security Guards) in Camps.
I love the Maasai. I was explaining in a meeting (today) that I need them to report to me before they leave the camp. I explained “What would you do if the appointed young boy watching your cattle left the cattle unattended?” They sat up and said with huge concern “WHY WOULD HE DO THAT?” they understood my point when I said “PLEASE think of us as your cattle,” They all laughed.
Hope everyone is well. xxx
