We got some pictures up of our Omo trip this morning, so now you should be able to see illustrations of the stories from down there.
Quick note of clarification: in the pictures of the Hamer women, the red stuff in their hair is a mix of ochre powder and butter that they run into their hair and make dreads with all the time. Its not something they do just for celebrations, it just what they look like. The stuff melts in the sun and drips onto their skin, which is why many of them have it all over. This is one of the main things the Hamer are famous for.
