Masai warrior with wristwatch

    Newer Older

    This man lives in a Masai village in the Ngorongoro highlands of Tanzania. The village is quite remote...the nearest electricity or running water is perhaps 70 miles away. He lives in a traditional Masai dwelling, with absolutely no "modern conveniences". And yet he wore a wristwatch...this seemed to be the one aspect of modern life he wished to adopt.

      Western civilization will cause the destruction of rare cultures steeped in ancient tradition.

      Ngorongoro is the most fabulous place I've seen; I've been there twice. I well remember the Masai. This is a lovely portrait.
