    Those Masai children are privileged to be able to study. Simple classroom adapted to their country, its temperatures and built with local materials. I remember such schools, the joy and pride of the children, their attention as the teacher spoke too ! A great pic, Truels, thanks for sharing your interesting journey with us.

      I was impressed that the children were taught under such primitive conditions. But the Masai seemed as proud and wise people who got the best out of their nomadic life.

    Vi var også på en skole. Ble satt tilbake til ei tid lenge før jeg var født!

    Flott bilde!

      Ja, det er mange århundreder siden, at skoler så sådan ud her. Men disse stolte folk fik det bedste ud af tilværelsen her på savannen (som jeg også skriver til Isa ovenfor 🙂 )

    Lovely. I remember when I bicycled to my school in winter when temperature was -30ºC = -22.0ºF. Believe it or not, but I got sweat was because my bike was very stiff to pedal.

      You had some different temperatures up there than in Africa!!! The kids here all live in the village around the school. And I do not think they had a single bike in the village…….

    I just love all the different facial expressions – wondering what they’re thinking! 🙂 And I wonder where they will be in 10, 20 years.

      They did not talk English – but it must be strange for them to see white people visiting their village and school…
