House Interior

Like the Samburu houses, these were very simple and revealed how few possessions the people had.  The house was basically a large room with a section walled off where the children slept.  Everyone slept on cowhide on the floor which was dirt.

The posts in the photo had some significance.  The family touched one of the poles in the morning before starting their day and the other one at night before they retired.

You can see the fire pit used for cooking.
