Stone houses of Koromi & Birka


2015 right, not 1015? Birka, near Koromi


Coherent, vibrant and prosperous communities. For 1000 years.


The weird pink hat was to preserve modesty for the picture.


I mean, c’mon


You don’t get depressed about decrepitude here. The Argoba have been renewing their communities and houses for a millenium…


Kormi household and family. Has simpler platforms and levels to traditional Harar houses.


Why are there only 2 tourists a month here? (actually there are cogent reasons, and its harder to visit and enjoy than the pictures suggest. But this is an incredible place).


Gratuitous shot of our10 year old Landy next to thousand year-old stone houses…
