A hundred of cows which the project members encountered on the way to Jinka, South Omo Zone. There are several ethnic groups of pastoralists who keep cattle, sheep or goats. They do grazing every day and, occasionally, use traffic roads. When a road is packed with cattle like these photos, it causes traffic jam. However, since cattle is not only important property but also vital resource in the local community, drivers give a full attention not to run them down accidentally.
