Villages of Southern Ethiopia

After visiting the hospital in Abobo, we continued by the road towards the south and we saw and visited several villages in wonderful wild Ethiopian vegetation. Most of the houses in these villages and traditional houses of Ethiopia are tiny circular huts that are used only for sleeping. The people of this area are the Oromo, the largest tribe in Ethiopia. They are Coptic Christians. The entire population of Ethiopia in general is very poor, but in this area even more so. There are just no resources. One of the things that struck me when we visited these villages is that to heat homes to sleep you create a fire inside, so, you can see some awesome fumes coming out of the huts (as seen in the photos).
