Photos from Summer 2011. The Himba are an ethnic group of less than 50.000 people living in northern Namibia, close to the Kunene River. They are mostly nomadic, pastoral people and they breed cattle and goats. The women are famous for covering themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter fat with a strong red color, possibly used as a protection from the sun as well as for beauty purposes. Adult women also wear beaded anklets to protect their legs from venomous animal bites.

High Atlas is a mountain range in central Morocco in Northern Africa. It rises in the west at the Atlantic Ocean and stretches in an eastern direction to the Moroccan-Algerian border.
At the foot of the High Atlas one finds Aït Benhaddou, a Kasbah or castle still in use. Among the summits at 1600 m height lies the Kasbah of Telouet on the road to Marrakech. The canyons and ravines of the Dadès and the Todra are also impressive.
