Video: Street scene in Ethiopia

This was the view from my balcony at Hotel Belayneh in Harar, eastern Ethiopia. I could have sat there all day watching the beggars, the tuktuks, the haggling over chat (a mildly narcotic leaf), the women in brightly coloured dresses like tropical parrots, the porters carrying huge loads on their heads, the donkeys, the stray dogs... Every corner of Harar is bursting with life and in places like this, next to the Shoa Gate Market, it never stops.
