A market in Ethiopia

The Key Afer market (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIx7VU_vYas) is the hub of the tribal area of South Eastern Ethiopia. These tribes spread across the southern areas of Ethiopia and over the borders into South Sudan and Kenya.

The land and the people are wild, beautiful and primal in their nature.

The market trades in spices, wares and animals in a vibrant bustle that appears unchanged for over 1000 years.

There is a Savage Beauty in Key Afer
