Last Day in Lamu
I took some amazing pictures of the Masai in Lamu and will post them. The Masai live still immersed in traditional ways. Last spring, Joseph Tipanko, a Masai activist and leader came tot he States and I saw him many times and I contacted him here and he's invited me to his village. So I may have the opportunity to go to a real Masai village and spend the night there. The Masai are so sweet. One of them showed me the scar from where he killed a lion--part of their initiation is to be alone in the woods and not come back until they've killed a lion. And he showed me the claw around his neck that he wears from the lion he killed.
