... pack of 13 Wild Dogs as well- a wonderful 3 days here. The big setback was that Paul’s car perforated a bellows and went into access mode- he limped to Arusha at 30km/h in the hope of getting it repaired whilst we were in the Serengeti! Thank goodness this is what happened!

Serengeti was next, but I shall write that as a separate entry as it was sooo awesome!

After the Serengeti we returned to Arusha, said goodbye to the Munnik girls and the New Zealand 3 and ...

... we learned about the Massai culture from Marco. It takes 10 cows to buy a wife, and a cow is about USD$700. Guess that means a wife is worth $7000. Massai used to use animal skin to wrap themselves, and then they started using white cloths. The warriors would use berries to dye their cloths red to signify their status.

... of that - like hospitals, more predictable animal management, and access to more modern learning. It's been a slow and steady change, but a necessary one as they have had a harder time maintaining their size, their animals, and as they learn more modern things (like about vitamin C). So the Masai are changing and becoming less nomadic and building more permanent villages.

... deeper into the national park, the wildlife turns to zebras and wildebeests, and lots of them! Amazing to see in nature. We eat lunch under a tree (with giant thorns!) casually surrounded by zebras and cows - something I'll never forget.

We periodically pass through a village, and some are just small villages, while others have more organization to them. One of the villages is having an election, and there's a big rally going on with the main politician waving ...
