Samburu Elder
making fire

The village elders greeted us (and took our money - $20 each!) then demonstrated how to make fire by rolling a stick in the hole of a piece of wood.
We were told that donkey dung is used as tinder: it's apparently "all it's good for!"
After that, Duncan was encouraged to 'have a go'.
