Cattle Market Key Afar

Key Afar, Ethiopia
Then away to Jinka after dropping our armed scout off at the National Park HQ for a half hour break.

Not far away (40 km) was Key Afar with the colourful cattle market. Mainly the Benna people with their red and black colour and braided hair were buying and selling. At one stage a bull decided enough is enough and for a few moments it felt the running of the Bulls at Pamplona with people running towards the fence to get out of the bull's way.

I'll let the pictures do the talking as usual. Most are taken on wide candidly from either my hip or a new position ... my chin. See the wooden head rest / seats that most of the men are carrying.
