The Himba Woman and the Sun Umbrella

During my visit to a Himba village in Namibia, the women of the tribe sat down in a circle and placed their merchandise in front of them. This woman was standing out from all the other women, as she was the only one with a sun umbrella - and one with flowers, that looked as if it doesn't really belong to the desert scene.
