As we continue on our Omo Valley adventure, we reach the small town of Turmi, the home of the Hamar people. As with most of the people of the South Omo, the Hamer are a strong, independent and lively people whose dancing, singing and initiation ceremonies are known worldwide. The women wear goat skin skirts decorated with shells. Turmi is the base from where we visit the Omo River at Omorate, the Geleb people and local markets such as Dimeka. Soak up the huge dramatic skies that stretch forever over the acacia scrubland.
Geographically Ethiopia is stunning. The landscape is dominated by the dramatic Ethiopian Highlands with peaks of 4000m or higher. The country is bisected by the Rift Valley, which starts at the Red Sea, to the North East, and continues south to Mozambique in southern Africa.
