South Omo

South Omo has a reputation for being a little commercial, and zoo-like ( but for people). Spending time at the market in Turmi didnt feel like that at all. Yes, you politely ask if you can take a picture ( and sometimes vice versa) and an immediate 5birr /  10birr (R2.50-R5) is negotiated. Occasionally some giggling occurs. Turmi, which is a Hamer town, has market every monday. The market is not put on for tourists – there were 4 in town. The market has a small curios section ( basically many of the same things for sale in the market, but with extra beads). Post market meetings, hookups, chats drinks etc looked fun and inviting.,,

Not the easiest place to reach... the Turmi road is occasionally a riverbed
