Living in paradise

As I mentioned earlier, one night we camped out at a Maasai village on top of a large hill. This picture is my lame attempt at capturing part of the view. It was much more impressive in person - one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Running across the middle of the picture is a lush green gorge, a large lake can be seen further off in the distance, and on the horizon the rightmost mountain is actually an active volcano. Although it can't been seen in this picture, there was even smoke coming out of the volcano!

Looking further up the hill from our campsite, this was the view:
