A Maasi village from the outside. A protective wall (against lions) of brush, thorn bushes, and other shrubs surround the entire village. ½ mile away it is all but indistinguishable in the landscape. Usually these villages are semi-portable as they follow the grazing of the cows. This village is more permanent, drawn to permanence by the presence of a school and a NEW Christian church nearby. You can barely make out the roofs of the houses inside the enclosure. We had the privilege to get a tour from one of the two elders.
