Love those faces
I always travel alone or with a travel mate. I would like to go to Ethiopia, and of course some other African countries, but I think travelling alone is a little complicated in those lands. Tell me: how did you visit this tribe in Ethiopia? On a tour? Alone? You can write to my email: gracetandil@yahoo.com.ar Thank you. I love the pictures and the texts you write. Love from Argentina.

Lovely photo!
Thanks Per-Olof. This one is also a favourite of mine. There is a special feel when photographing tribal people from Africa. They usually are not self conscious...just proud of who they are...and when they show attitude like this one...voila!
