ETHIOPIA: THE OMO VALLEY
Posted July 16, 2013 by Rahul Aggarwal
After a while, we reached the village of Key Afar, home to the Banna tribe. Today was market day, which is usually held once or twice a week. Market days are very important in these communities as people jostle for positions to sell their produce. Everything from grain and livestock to tribal jewellery and clothes are sold. In addition, these occasions are a chance for people to socialise. I watched on as one guy tried to catch the eye of a Banna girl by flirting with his eyes (no different from a Friday night back home then!), to which she responded with a cursory glance and then a smile … and I soon noticed that this was quite common. It is not uncommon for men and women (or boys and girls) to meet their life partners at these market days too.
