Nomadic Life, The Desert (danakil, Dallol)


Here there are many points that are more than 100 meters below sea -level where noon time temperature can soar above 50⁰C. Improbable as it may seem, it is inhabited by a host of sturdy people. Hostile and fierce, proud and individualistic, the hundred thousand or so people who wrest a living from this challenging and inhospitable wilderness are the Afar (sometimes called the Danakil).
