Ethiopia, Lasta, 2007
Inside all houses is only one room, in which all animals live together with people, the animals are heating the sleeping place above them. The fire is going for most of the day until late into the night for constant and very long cooking, which the woman do. Therefore the houses are specially in the evenings full of smoke (created by the cows shit which burns), so that one can not see and breathe. The room and sealing is covered in dirt, so that there is no chance to keep anything clean. This village had (and many other villages still have) people who are doing pottery or metal work and sell them on the market. These families are separate from the others, because they say these people become hyenas at night, and they magically beat people, so that they die later and are then eaten by the hyena people. Some families moved out of this village, because they are afraid of the hyena people living in the same village.
