Asmara Eritrea - May 25 2008
I am invited for lunch by
Feshaye and Yordanos. We will celebrate the third birthday of Naomi.
In the morning I walk from
Sembel to Dearo Paulos, a small village south of Asmara. My first
impression of the village is a bit disappointing. A lot of recently built
houses and many still under construction.
When I ask if the village has
a church or a mosque, I am told to walk in the southern direction to the
old village, two kilometer further uphill. The landscape changes and I
walk into a more traditional village.
Unfortunately there is a
military camp, and the military doesn't allow me to continue my walk.
"Get out" is the clear instruction after a passport check.
From Dearo Paulos I take the
mini bus back to Sembel to avoid further encounters with the Eritrean
In a grocery shop in Sembel I
buy some chilled soft drinks and some ice creams for the children at
