Jinka, Ethiopia | 5 April, 2007 | $5.68

Jinka is a sizable town in the remote Southwest area of Ethiopia near the borders of Sudan and Kenya. It was also home to a fascinating little museum that’s part of the South Omo Research Center. I enjoyed the chance to walk around town and people watch. It wasn’t a market day so I found people playing ping pong, kicking a soccer ball around and congregating on the side of the road to see a huge snake someone had killed.

More photos of the road to Jinka and Jinka itself are in the gallery.
