Traveling through Africa: Unique Camping with the Hamar Tribe in Turmi, Ethiopia

3년 전

I camp with the Hamar Tribe in Turmi, Ethiopia. Upon arrival, they kill a goat right in front of me, dismember it, and cook it. It is pitch black dark. No electricity. I can see every star in the sky, as I lay back and view the stars...

All photos are original and mine.


The photo shown is their hut. It is just them and I. No other tourists. Throughout the night, we play games, I try to interact with the children as well as the adults despite not just the language barrier, but culture as well.

This has been life changing.

great photos, I just had a look back over some of your other posts too.

I see you are here on steemit a few months now, just had a look around your account. I know when people start here they get a few welcome messages, but after that, if you have not joined a community you can easily get lost in the sea of posts. How are you getting on here on steemit anyway?

I’m doing a little bit of outreach this week with those that have been here a few months and have had some time to get a feel for the place. Would love to know your thoughts so far? Is there anything I can help you with or questions I can answer for you?

One tip I am spreading this week is to check your mentions. being part of steemit includes engagement and if someone happens to mention you in a post, you should really check it out. You can find your mentions on, if you look through the tabs, you will find all your mentions.

Wow, that first photo, of the hut and stars is absolutely gorgeous! We just don't see the sky that way in the lit-up cities (I live in a pretty well-lit city lol). It's almost unreal, the way the sky looks in your photo. Great shot.
I'd love to hear more details about your experience there! And see more photos! :)

Hopefully theese people have benefitted a lot from your visit.
