Nothing is wasted!
the smallest shards are reused, first in sun-catchers then
mosaics and finally re-melted in the bead hut to form the
spun beads that have become famous as being the only glass
beads made in East Africa, where the famous Masai beadwork
comes from. The recycled bead shower curtains are popular
and can you believe this - keep out mosquitoes! The place
is situated in a particularly
dry spot of the semi-arid plains south of Nairobi just beyond
the National Park.
Animals, wild and tame are everywhere.
pigs, camels, horses, mule and donkeys, ostriches, Rottweilers
and Dachshunds, the Egyptian Vulture (the Kitengela mascot),
and the odd leopard or wailing hyena, not forgetting the river
pythons that regularly feed on the poultry all abound.
we always say “Never a dull day!”
