My day with the Maasai Part 1: Some Things Are Not Meant To Be.

In the 17 years I have been coming to Africa one of the valuable lessons I have learned from the wonderful people of Africa is that if things do not go according to plans you can be sad, you can be disappointed, but you must accept the fact move on and enjoy what you have. […]

After visiting this very moving place I was taking the ferry back to the mainland. While on the ferry I was thinking about what I had seen […]
