Once again we reminisce- knowing it won't be long till we will get back to this living, when we slept under the stars, nourished ourselves with food from the village women sold for next to nothing with the banter that came free with each plate and bottle we drowned. The children screaming 'mzungu' and Ben having to explain in Kiswahili it's not nice, better to say Hello. Leaving them baffled that he, with his skin can speak Kiswahili so well. The next time, they replace mzungu with Benji, Ben, Benjamini, mambo, vipi, habari" followed by numerous high fives. We smile, knowing all is well with the world, and this is what happiness looks like - in a #Masai community at the foothills of #Mt.Meru
