I opened the front door this morning to find a giant forest hog on the doorstep. They are very large wild pigs, black in color and standing three feet tall at the shoulder. He (or she) stood looking at the apparition in the doorway, snorted a couple of times and ambled off.
Since returning to Maasai country a week ago, three Maasai girls have asked me for help with secondary school expenses. Nasinyari, Sinyati and the daughter of Neyeyo each need about a thousand dollars for the school year starting in January. I responded that we would try to help depending on what is donated through the website.
