I love these!
And I agree that they are a beautiful people.
What a wonderful experience you must have had.
What tribe are these people?
I was in Kenya about 20 or so years ago and visited a Maasai village. It's hard to tell differences and similarities between then and now, but two things really stand out- that boy wearing a Tee shirt with short pants, and the men wearing shoes.
When I was there I saw no concession to western influences at all- except the women had beaded necklaces and nobody was naked.
Everyone was barefoot when I visited. That has apparently changed.

Thank you all friends for looking.
BTW, Charlie about shoes: people from the big town Nairobi making money by turning=cutting old tires into "shoes" and selling their shoes to villagers.

Thank you all for looking. it was a glorious trip.
BTW, the star of the show was the girl you all see here.
She happened to be right in front of me right in the beginning. so I started following her around and within seconds, other guys noticed "my girl"---you know guys---and she smiled even prettier.
