I am located right next to the Ngorongoro crater which is home to hundreds of African wildlife. This is exciting because I get to see all sorts of animals on my runs but this also means the animals can wonder right on over to our village. So our protection?? MAASAI! We have quite a few Maasai men who patrol the campus at night making sure animals, or anything else stays away. They also walk around during the day with their traditional red cloaks (probably not the right word!) The best part is seeing them with pink crocs (dad just like yours!!) or bright green boots.

The boys this morning ran around wrapped in blankets saying MAASAI MAASAI!!!

*Oh a HUGE difference between kids here and kids in the states.... When I cut the bread for breakfast and snack they always say 'end piesh end piesh' aka they want the end piece. Weird.

  1. I thought I was a trend setter but I guess that I am just following in the footsteps of the Maasai.
