Being invited in to someones home is a great privilege and one that I was not going to pass up.  In the village of Dorze, in the highlands of Konso region in Southern Ethiopia, this family were only too happy to show us where and how they live.  And most encouraging for me, to pose for photographs.

  1. I have been to Dorze this year. It’s a wonderful place and great people!

    • I agree. They are some of the most hospitable people I’ve met in Ethiopia so far. Glad you enjoyed Ethiopia.
