Hamer Girl, Ethiopia

This young Hamer girl is from Southern Ethiopia. I meet her at a market near a small dusty place called Tumi while researching the Ethiopian guidebook for Lonely Planet. The Hamer are one of the more friendly tribes  in the South but even still communication was pretty one way. The red mud in her hair has been mixed with butter so that it doesn’t set and the ‘red, wet look’ is all the rage in them parts.
