The New Life Band had organised a concert on the Sunday with various other groups including a Pentecostal group from Zambia called Adonai. The band don't have concerts that often so it was great that we could be there to see them. It was an outdoor 'worship extravaganza' and a few thousand people attended
Ondo took us to a Masaai museum as the area around Arusha is real Masaai land and where the tribe originate from. The way of the Maasai is interesting, you're considered a man after circumcision between the ages of 13-23 years yet you can't drink the Maasai homemade honey beer until you're about 35-40 years old! Attached to the museum was a snake park, which we visited and one of the staff picked a small snake off a tree and handed it to Tom. We both held it but I was not so enthusiastic! It's not quite a python, but a snake nonetheless.
We had a really nice relaxing week spent around Arusha town and with the family at home.
