The Maasai are a physically beautiful people - tall, thin, elegant. What strikes me the most are the colors of their Maasai blankets. The reds, purples, and blues - WOW!

Throughout our journey with this village, we had the chief's permission to photograph. The children love to be photographed, but the women are often reluctant. I always asked. Some of the women and older children still did not wish to be photographed, or asked for money after the image was created.
