Ethiopia, Dessie, 2007
There are only very few towns in Ethiopia, and they are quite small. Only 15% of the countries population lives in towns or cities. This town had it's first stone house five years earlier, all other houses are made with clay and a wood construction. The town is very crowded, one has to be constantly aware not to be run over by a car, there is no space for expansion between the higher mountains of the highland on one side, and the much lower lowland on the other side. Most homes have no water and no toilet. Some people here became recently very rich, but most people are poor, they are very happy if they can start a shoe cleaning job. The religion in this highland area is Christian, but there are also Muslims who come from the lowland area (50% Christian and 50% Muslim population).
