Arusha Maasia Market burnt down to the ground

[December 24, 2014]
I just read online that a month ago, the Maasai Market nearby the Clocktower in Arusha was burnt down to the ground. How tragic!
It was a real tourist market. As a mwzungu (white person) you were not able to comfortably look at the Maasai-trinkets without being spoken to and without feeling guilty about not wanting to take all those souvenirs home.

 



Nevertheless, the market was a wonderful, colorful sight. I genuinely hope they are able to build it up again.
