Keren Eritrea May 28 2011

 

On my way to Medeber. I pass the Italian war Cemetery. The cemetery is well maintained and in this time of year the bougainvillea shrubs bloom in yellow, orange and purple.

On the left side of the cemetery are the graves of the Italian soldiers. Rows of white marble tombstones, with the names of the soldiers engraved. On the right side of the tombs of the Eritrean soldiers, and the graves of the unknown soldiers, also in white marble.

I leave a few lines in the guest book.

I spend the early afternoon walking through the center of Keren, watching every day life, and the preparations for the Festival.

Hidat invited me for a walk at 3:00 PM and a visit to the hair dresser. She will have her hair done for tomorrows feast, the Mariam Dearit Festival.

I watch the ladies braiding the hair of the customers, while they are drinking coffee, the traditional way.

When I point the camera in their direction, it is immediately clear that they don't want me to picture the work in progress. I will have to wait until it is finished, or until tomorrow.
