Ethiopia, Kaffa, 2015. Boys bathing in hot spring.

While working for NABU in the Kaffa region I visited the hot spring off the beaten track near Bonga. The hot spring is very popular with the local population who believe it has healing powers. Depending on the individual case, people may visit for a day or stay for up to two weeks. The boys were enjoying a more shallow part of the river, where the water is hotter.
