In Gash Barka
Here we are in western Eritrea, in the province of Gash Barka, named after the two rivers which run throught the area. This was taken from the bus in the early morning as we made a dash back to Asmara, fearing that we might have to wait 2 or 3 days for the next bus to take us back from Barentu to Asmara, such is the dire state of public transport in Eritrea.
In a way, it was a pity we left Barentu so quickly because it was here that we found some of the most colourful people in all our travels. They were as shy as they were photogenic, with the result that we did not get many nice photos. Still, it was quite an adventure and we had a spectacular sky to see us off into the early night.
