After yesterday’s mud-slinging, the noise signals at the wheel come again, luckily there is only one stone, which was clamped in the brake and a quickly solved problem. Hit of the day are the Maasai cattle herds that graze just across the Aruba Mara Camp in the Masai Mara National Reserve.
As we learn later, the maasai are punished for that with 10,000 KSH, about R 1000 per herd, what appears us much. The herds are there all night over at the Talek River, until the next day, than they will be sent out of the park. The cattle run to their home, the reason is simple.
They have separated the calves from their mothers and because they are not milked, they will reach their offspring as soon as possible. That the was almost 24 hours in the park, right at the gate are in the buildings of the park employees, again shows that the whole game must be rigged. Exactly the same amount we would pay a penalty if we would be caught without a permit in the park. Thats Africa!
