Woman Licks Beer off Lip Plate

« Back to Africa's Last Frontier: Ethiopia's Omo Valley, March 2010 National Geographic Magazine

A Mursi woman licks the last drop of beer off of her lip plate in a bar in Kibbish, the last village at the end of the last road in the upper Omo Valley.  Outside police are walking up and down the main dirt road of the town with megaphones telling men to check their AK-47's at the police station.  Obviously the man in the background of this photo is ignoring their message.
