That late afternoon in Ethiopia, Momina, made me a most delicious cup of coffee. Gently upon her face was hurud or ird in Ahmeric, a mustard yellow powder that comes from the Ird tree, used to keep skin moisturized from the scorching Afar sun that heavily warms this area in the Horn of Africa. She was making the coffee while I took this portrait. In such welcoming, I talked with Momina and her mother while sipping a cup, sharing feelings about their nomadic life, the simple pleasures after a long day tending their livestock in the Afar region of northern Ethiopia.
