Dust Storm

    Newer Older

    The looming drought in Kenya is becoming serious by the day. The weather patterns have drastically changed as is known world over and Kenya is not spared. The rivers and lakes are drying, cattle are dying and people are starving.

    Only there is dust when the wind blows, like in this Maasai village,with no cattle there is nothing to do, but just hoping that rain comes. It is the worst drought in years.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------

    La sequía en Kenia se agrava cada día. Como en el resto del mundo el clima está cambiando drásticamente y lugares como este son los primeros en sentirlo. Los ríos y lagos se están secando, el ganado se está muriendo y la gente no tiene que comer.

    Sólo hay tormentas de polvo cuando sopla el viento, como en este pueblo Maasai, donde sin ganado no hay nada que hacer, sólo esperar que la lluvia haga aparición. Es la peor sequía en muchos años.
