Backroads America: Sunset Over The Fields

On the Road Again

Columbia County, New York.

I am spending two weeks exploring the Hudson Valley in upstate New York. It is a beautiful area. I will try a few posts but my internet is spotty.

Himba Village, Northern Namibia

The Himba people live in northern Namibia and southern Angola, and are considered the last semi-nomadic people of Namibia.  This village is in the Kunene Region. According to our guide, the Himba are the last Namibian tribes to still wear traditional ethnic clothing and animal skins. Women cover their skin with a red pigment made from a mixture of ochre and butterfat. Villages are supported by farming and herding. Some villages allow tourists to visit as a way to earn extra income.
