One of the unique aspects of visiting the Maasai in Kenya is they perform many of their rituals while you are there. After seeing the way they typically dance and getting a taste of what life is like inside their homes they took us outside to see other aspects of their culture. After seeing both the men and women sing typical songs in their language they brought the machete! That’s right, the same machete they use to hunt Lions.
The strapping young man you see below placed the machete on the ground and began created a fire, no lighters or matches allowed. It took quite a long time since the wind really picked up. Still a very unique experience.
