      ... crisp and rice pudding. It was the best meal of our trip so far. After lunch we drove on some more bad roads to meet a family in the Iraqw tribe and learn about their history. The Iraqw people live in this area, and in the past they were frequently robbed of their cattle by the Maasai, who believe all cows in the world belong to them. We sat in a thatched roof structure that had clay walls and was conical in shape while the man, Martin, taught us about ...

      ... and cool so we didn't go for a swim in the blue tile pool but we decided it would have been great.

      Fortunately, we found some cats. That seems to be the thing missing from Tanzania - nobody has cats (maybe because of the big cats?).
