In the Mursi village the women and girls like to sell us their traditional clay lipplates.
The most plates have a round shape in different sizes of about 10 CM.
This woman has also a plate with another shape. Most of the clay plates are decorated with small designs.
I liked the lipplates a lot. It's reallly an original item to bring home. They are very cheap, so I decided not to negotiate to lower the prize.

The Lower Omo is well known to have both Maleria and Dengue Fever.
When we were there, it was cold and wet, so very few insects were about.
Make sure you bring a treated net (most hotels have them but full of holes). Use Deet and cover up in the evenings. Take your anti-malarial religiously.
We spoke to a few people there who had been bitten and a couple who had contracted Maleria.
