Armwrestling with Masai


In 2010 in Kenya, on safari, during the stay in the Lion Hill Resort, Tsavo West, we've met a Masai named Kayan (I traveled as always with my girlfriend, Gosia). He worked there as a guardian / protector against wild animals.

A few days earlier he has started his duty in this resort, which lasts about 3 months. That's how much time he needed to make enough money to buy a cow. The Maasai convert everything to cows, the more cows the richer Masai is.
