The Maasai tribe are an ethnic group that live in Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania. Having a combined population of over 1million, they speak official languages of Kenya, Tanzania, Swahili and English. Their culture and lifestyle have attracted numerous visitors to Kenya and a fee is required for such visits to their villages.
Distinctive Clothing or dresses which always involve accessories are an identity to this nomad tribe. Hair styles are determined by superiority and rite of passage. For instance, warriors keep their hair braided while boys shave their hair two days before circumcision.
The typical diet of a Maasai used to be raw meat, raw milk and raw blood with some vegetables in most areas but as of today its cow’s milk, cattle and maize.

Malta traditions (Lace making)

Lace making is one of Malta’s most precious traditions. Originally associated with nobility, it is now considered a highly valued commodity.

Maltese lace was shown at The Great Exhibition of 1851 and it became popular in Britain. The style was copied by lace makers in the English Midlands, and it was one of the sources for Bedfordshire lace.

Lace is still made in Malta today. To ensure the survival of the craft, lace making is taught in Government trade schools for girls, while private bodies such as the Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce also hold special evening classes.
