Masai V Mzungu

Location: Engaruka, Tanzania

This is the famous soccer game in Engaruka. We played against the local masai who ranged from boys to big men. We were surrounded by the Rift mountains with mud huts and maize crops around the dusty field. We drew 3 all and even had an incident where the village Chief came out and whipped 2 of their players! That's another story... This soccer game was a highlight of the trip.

GO Alex, you're on our team now

Introductions before the game... 'Ronaldo, Figo, Ronaldino'... funny guys

Come on Craig

Dust everywhere and Masai dudes watching on the sideline

Danny, masai soccer star!

Super James, what a save

Matt makes friends with the opposition afterwards

Athumani our friend, and his sister

Come on Dan, he's little, you can beat him
