Child of the Maasai
This little boy lives in a Maasai tribe near Msata, Tanzania. He had never seen a caucasian person before this day. After nearly an hour at his home, he finally came out in the open to see myself and my two boys. This tribe lives in huts made out of their cows' dung, therefore they live their lives completely surrounded by flies. Infants are born knowing nothing else, which is how this child is able to make no effort to move the hundreds of flies from every part of his body.
