... Banana trees and palm trees were abundant. At about 7500 feet we reached our destination, the historic Mount Kenya Safari Lodge. Once owned by Wiilliam Holden and frequented by movie stars, it has a 1000 acre game preserve and its own water plant. We arrived to see peacocks strutting around the beautiful grounds.

Then T.M. came into the room with the boiled tongue and esophagus. These Speck was able to eat and enjoy, and he ate them in the Kenyan way, taking chunks from the communal platter and raving them on the salt.

... 20L raw honey, a 90 kg sack of sugar (since they no longer sell 90 kg sacks, 2 50 kg sacks instead, so really 100 kg of sugar), and a mwati or lamb to give to the women as bribery to get them to cook the 2 sheep.

Last thing, Maruta, nyathiba or dress for the mother, githii or suit for father, and a blanket and a set of sheets to keep them warm in their old age.

The women of the tribe also need gifts, once again these are metaphorical gifts, they are really ...
