After the KICC Building, we took off to visit the city center market—but not before putting our camera gear back in the vehicles; we were advised that it was not safe for us to carry such expensive equipment there. As I entered the market, the first thing that immediately caught my eye was some African art. I was in love with it but I didn’t buy it. Later, I found out that the exact same art could be bought from other vendors throughout the area. Apparently, these reprints are very popular. I did see a Maasai weapon that I absolutely had to have! The vendor told me it would be 7,500 Kenyan Shillings, which equals about $75 US. Sensing my lack of experience in such matters, my host mother told me “no, that's too much,” and we walked off. Later, she went back and purchased the weapon for about $12.00 USD; she explained that it is common practice in those markets for vendors to charge white people(tourists) substantially more money for such items. So, now I have a new weapon to add to my collection! One very important thing that I noticed was the stern looks I got everywhere I went. They weren't hateful looks, nor were they aggressive—just stern.
