On our most recent trip to my birthplace, Kenya, my bf and I were invited to visit a Masai village. I have been around many Masai before, but never spent a whole day with them on their turf. It was a life changing experience. The way they have stayed true to who they are and the values they hold dear in a world that is ever changing is truly inspiring. It’s always a treat to be reminded that less is very often more: family and a sense of community is all we really need, and traditions are sacred, and worth fighting for. Oh, and a simple balloon or lolly is enough to make a child’s day!
