Maasai market - maasai from nearby villages gather a few times a week in specified locations to barter or buy things from each other. Note: this is an example of a break from traditional Maasai culture

Lovely pictures by the way! I'm an undergraduate student doing some research on the Maasai. I was just wondering whether men and women mix during the market days. It is a bit hard to see from the picture.

In our limited experience, we saw them mix somewhat, but they tended towards remaining in same-sex groups.
