James is waiting for us about 100 kilometers away. He is our guide for Nakapelimoru. This is apparently the largest village in East Africa with a population of 21,000. And a village in this is a traditional village, where every family has its own fenced yard. Not long ago the heirs merged into one another, but nowadays there is more room.
