A really picturesque place in Dire Dawa is the river, as the locals call it. Actually it had almost no water when I visited it. We had to walk for about one hour from the street where the taxi driver left us. We passed beautiful verdant nature and walked along small paths. All the way local children escorted us and kept us company with their happy attitude.
When we arrived in the river we saw many locals who live along the river or in more remote parts along the banks while they were going on with their daily chores. Washing themselves or their clothes, taking care of their animals, carrying their products to the city...
Some of them were open and smiling, others were even hostile to my camera. But most of them were beautiful in their traditional colorful clothes! The picture of them coming down the river with their camels is still very vivid in my mind!!!
