Yirga Cheffe (Photos by Admassu)

It is always green in Yirga Cheffe and also in the surrounding areas. Actually, the majority of the landscapes in southern Ethiopia wears green through out the year. Yirga Cheffe is one of the extreme examples. When it rains, you better remain at home. But can one do that if it never stops raining the whole day and night? The roads are not walkable and there is no way to scape the red mud if you are out there once. Here are some photographs to underline my statement….

Not an easy game to be a student here…


… but quite a refreshing break for horses, because they usually don’t have any…


… some animals use the opportunity to take over the town …


… it is your best friend if you have the right shoes … and it is also your worst enemy if you have the wrong shoes …


… car wash is quite a flourishing business in Yirga Cheffe…


… drenched with rain but never lost his humor…


… don’t worry we are not in the Far East. The art of bamboo umbrellas is an old tradition here …


More photo stories from Yirga Cheffe are coming soon…


  1. Nice pictures Admassu. I heard how green our country in south is. But these pictures are very good examples. I will direct my next journey towards south. May be you will give me some tips. The right shoe story is very useful.

    Keep it coming…
