    I was on a safari in Kenya when some Masaai kids came running along side a hill and down to meet us. That was the closest I ever got to running with the Masaai.

    They are so fancy! Looks great.. Beautiful people!! I feel warm heart. I saw a documentary about Amazon, and the people live there. They were the happiest people in the earth. i guess people in Kenya are like that also.

    amazing. I hope to be fortunate enough to ‘run’ with the Masaai one day. The world’s greatest hunters.

    I know what you mean. They took such great care of us when we were there at the start of the riots. The country was on the verge of great turmoil but they continued to smile and constantly cracked jokes to ease the tension. I’ll never forget their hospitality and kindness.

    I admit … every time I see a picture of Kenya, my emotions are tugged a little. Kenyans are such kind and beautiful people, and they’re a lot of fun. I absolutely love this shot. Boys will be boys, regardless of where in the world they live.
