Nice portrait. Our stop at a Maasi camp was one of the highlights of our
safari. Had our then 13 year-old grandson, Alex, with us. The Maasai
gentleman giving the talk about Maasai life suggested to him, in front of
everyone including some young Maasai women sitting nearby, that he might
like to spend a year living with the Maasai.

His offer was probably not helped by his description of their coming of age
rituals, which include circumcision. About which his grandmother
stage-whispered to Alex, "At least that's already done, in your case." That
was followed by a description of how owning cattle was part of what a young
Maasai man must accomplish before he could marry. The Maasai gentleman's
next statement, directly to Alex? "A year is not long, and don't worry,
young man, we'll give you some cattle."
