A Karamojong warrior's life is not easy. It involves being constantly vigilant for attacks from other herders as well as tending to the needs of his cattle.
Despite their fearsome reputation they showed incredible friendliness and hospitality during my visits and invited me to sit and drink milk and blood. Sadly there wasnt the time to try this undoubted delicacy but I was assured that it's delicious, both eaten warm, pink and frothy from the cow and coagulated with cows urine and roasted over the fire. It apparently tastes like liver.
