Sign of the Times?

I am writing in the internet cafe I frequent in town (because power at home so unreliable).

Beside me, checking his emails, is a Masai complete with characteristic attire of red ‘shuka’, million-mile tyre sandals, alot of beads and earlobes pierced with something weighty when he was young so that that now they almost reach his shoulders.

Despite being – apparently – proficient in technology know-how, he is lacking a hankie.  And has an appalling cold.
