This was another gentleman who could speak English .
He told us a few things about their lifestyle.

Goats / cattle are their wealth .
The man with more goats / cattle is considered richer .

Transactions are in barter system
Though , now they use Kenyan Shillings and US Dollars as well .

They eat raw meat , drink raw milk and sometimes, raw blood of the cattle .
Vegetables and fruits are not common.
They cultivate and eat rice and maize.
They well built ,have stamina and strength to take on wild animals.

They practice polygamy.
The man with more cattle can have more wives.

Men take care of cattle and protect the village
Women take care of the households and make beautiful ,intricate jewellery .
