The rainy season normally comes with different things in Maasailand, one of the most important things is milk, because cows are healthy and there is enough pasture and water for them and so they produce a lot of milk. Milk is one of the most nutritious foods we have. When have a lot of milk we don’t need to buy any other food like maize flour or beans and other agricultural products.
If you don’t have cows one is regarded as oltorroboni (Dorobo). These are people in Kenya who are hunters and gatherers. They collect nuts and hunt for bush meat, and are looked down upon by other Maasai clans. But to us here in camp; the rainy season is sending us elephants. Here is one I took in the morning outside my tent.
In Maasailand we have two rainy season in a year, one starts in November and ends in late December, this is referred to as the short rains. The long rains as we are experiencing right now are from mid March to late May.
The evenings are so beautiful that I don’t want to get dark.
I have been giving you a weather report where I live, what is the weather like in your country?
