Ngorongoro Crater with David & Sylvia

looking through the visitor's center while waiting for our paperwork to be processed 

the drive up to the rim of the crater was shrouded in mist

a dear old elephant who used his tusks to support his trunk as he ambled along

After we left the crater we stopped at a Maasai cultural boma to watch them sing and dance, and to look inside the boma walls.

lots of bead work for sale
