November & December 2009
A warm winter in Eritrea
 

 

Asmara - November 18 2009

 

Via Gheza Berhanu I climb the hill on which the Cherhi restaurant is built. From the garden of this traffic control like restaurant & party center one has an excellent view over Asmara.

After reaching the hill's top, I snake down through the alleys of Gheza Berhanu. It is one of the poorer districts of Asmara. The small streets are basically the slope of the hill, allowing no motorized traffic.

The alleys steeply rise and decent, making it a nice exercise as well (it is one of my goals: to lose some weight and some stress during my three weeks stay in Eritrea).

Many small children come from their houses and want to shake hands. But I don't trust their hand for reasons of hygiene. Their parents ask me where I am going to. Gheza Berhanu, I answer them, as an argument that I am not lost.
