Mission to Kenya 2005

Wednesday, January 19, 2005


At 8 am and 8 pm, the men convene a parliament to discuss issues; women are not allowed within earshot. (DO NOT get any ideas, gentlemen!). It is also at these parliaments that issues such as marriage and circumcision get decided.

The married women have a large hole in one earlobe and wear a beaded hoop in that ear. A string of beads that is worn around the neck is threaded through that hoop.
