    Turmi Primary School

    In Turmi we visited the primary school. The staff of the school was very friendly and hospitable to show us their school. They are very inventive to make their own education materials.

    So we saw fantastic drawings at the walls of their schoolbuilding, at paper and cloth. They showed us a room with all the self-made materials and drawings. It looked wonderful, like a museum. I hope, they will not throw away these original materials, when they have raised enough funds to replace them by printed items and other professional materials.

    Turmi market

    We stayed a few days in Turmi in the far Southwest of Ethiopia. Turmi is a sandy village with conical thatched huts. We followed the walking men and women to reach the monday market, where we had to buy some vegetables and potatos.

    The Hamer women looked beautiful in their decorated goatskin skirt, with kaurishell necklaces, chestplates, beads and all other kind of home-made jewelry. Their hair was dyed with ochre clay and animal fat.

    Many men had also dyed coiffures and walked with their handmade headrests. The little children liked to walk with us, holding hands.
