Photos: If You Never Experienced Any of These While Growing Up then You Missed A lot

Growing up in a Kenyan or African village setting is one of the best and hilarious memories one can ever share with the new generation. Days when families were more than just blood ties and friendships were more than just mutual bonds. In the modern world, some parents don't even allow their kids to interact with other kids for fear of ethical contamination even though they get it completely wrong. The new generation misses alot. But still, if you were never part of these activities while growing up, you missed alot.
