Hamer greeting

Rarely, if ever, do you see Hamer people of any gender engaging in any displays of affection, beyond hand shaking. So it was extraordinary to see two women approach each other and kiss, a long involved kiss. Most likely explanatin to my mind is that they were family members who hadn't seen each other for some time and were brought together by the bull-jumping ceremony. A greeting rather than anything else.
