Villagers Run to River on Dusty Trails

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

This is a hot, dusty Kuwego town called Kuchuru.  There is no road access to this town and there are no boats these people can use except for a few hollowed out pirogues.  The entire village comes running to the banks of the Omo when they hear a NGO's boat engine.  It will be months before they see another power boat on the Omo.
