Ethiopia’s Omo Valley | Africa’s Last Frontier, National Geographic Magazine: Karo Village called Duss on the Banks of the Omo, Ethiopia

In a Karo village called Duss, some say Duss is made of dust. The winds come downriver blowing powdered dust deposited earlier by the Omo as silt. The dust has the consistency of drywall powder.  Smoke seen the background is an uncontrolled burn which is unlike agricultural burns that many cultures practice. The tribes just start a fire and hope it goes the right direction to clear a field, but often it ends up burning down their huts.
