Some of you may have caught John Hasting's Thomson's talks for RSGS last season (Ayr, Dumfries Borders) when he told audiences about his adventures walking with the Maasai. John, who is Joseph Thomson's Great - great - nephew, is still involved with the Maasai and works with tribal elder Ezekiel Katato to help preserve Maasai culture. If you are interested in John's work then you can find out more in a special feature in today's Herald.
