Most boys of similar age are always dusty after a long day of play in the dust.  The Maasai boys have much fewer responsibilities than the girls and much more time for play.  Masai villages especially in Amboseli are very dusty due to the thin soil trampled even thinner by cattle hooves.  Cattle, which are the primary measure of wealth for the Maasai, must be enclosed in the middle of the village for the night as protection against wild animals and cattle rustlers.
