Hamer beauty

Endless traveling in a jeep and all its discomforts are outweighed when one is able to share and experience life with rich ancient cultures. Hamer are some of the many tribes living in the area of the Omo valley. One of the most intense experiences you can have on a trip is feeling close to a different culture by learning from their traditions. But today there are several threats that endanger this living legacy of humanity and it is everyone's responsibility to protect it. This picture was taken in Dlbeno village, one of the several Hamer villages in this area. Despite the unavoidable western influence, many people like this young hamer girl are proud of their traditional clothes and wear their ancient clothing with pride.
