After lunch we drive out of the caldera, taking a few last looks at this amazing place. It's like the most incredible zoo ever, except ...

He had some interesting perspectives on the Masai. He said he is mixed when I asked him if he was Masai (and I realized I just asked about his tribe, which probably isn't a good thing).

But they have become more permanent as they learn ...
