Children waiting for morning chai in a Luo village, Western Kenya.

In the morning, when young children get up, their mother is already busy fetching water, milking, dish washing, or sometimes working in the vegetable garden. Mother finally makes morning chai (milk tea) after these works are done. The children keep on waiting for chai while helping her with the housework and playing with brothers, sisters, and neighbors.
