ON THE WAY TO SHOOT THE TRIBAL CULTURE OF THE OMO VALLEY

_ETH7471

We’re heading south from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, towards the diverse tribal groups that inhabit the Southern Omo Valley region.

It’s about a 14 hour journey and I’m madly processing images from the northern leg of the trip in the back of the car so I can hand everything over to the tourism authority before I leave in about a weeks time.
As I posted, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela have been a highlight, as was walking with the baboons on the Simien mountains, but I’ve been particularly looking forward to the next week given my interest in tribal cultures.
In the meantime, there’s been a thousand pic opportunities to keep me entertained during the journey. This one (above) was fun, captured at one of the roadside Ethiopian coffee bars we pulled into along the way.
