The jewelry that I'm wearing is both new and old. The circular necklace and cross body beads I purchased on this trip, but the beautiful beaded sash was my grandmother's. It was given to her as a gift many years ago from a Masai woman. The sash symbolizes celebration for special occasions.
The picture above was taken right before we began the ceremonial dance. Two by two or three by three, groups of women jump forward while chanting. It was so cool to be a part of!
The picture to the right was taken during the blessing of the cattle. The little boy with his arm around me is named Dion. We became buds for the day, he did not leave my side!
