... and the TVE staff, so we arranged to get local sim cards for our current phones or a cheap basic phone to use in the area. I got a SIM card with credit and a month's unlimited internet (albeit pretty slow) for the equivalent of about £7! It took quite a long time to get these organised for the whole group but once we had finished, we made our way to the Masai Market - the place to find all kinds of pretty authentic African souvenirs.
