Town Square

Quality time with the Masai

Original post made by AnnaMirsky, another community, on Mar 1, 2013

One of my major goals for this trip was to visit a local Masai tribe, interact with them and buy some jewelry. I had already seen them in town, wearing their bright red-and-blue checkered cloth and carrying large sticks as staffs.

yes, with the all the markup that the local merchants charge on Masai Jewelry, there is no doubt that it is cheaper to travel straight to Africa and buy them directly.
