The Himba women of northern Namibia perform daily rituals in which they anoint themselves with a mixture of ochre, oil, and ash to protect themselves from the harsh desert climate. They never take a shower, but rather burn aromatic herbs in a pot each morning with which they smoke themselves as if applying perfume.

It's no hard if you try as John Lennon told us 30 years ago. Diversity makes difference and they have their own lives.

Very interesting visit. They appear to be a sturdy handsome people who love their life as much as anyone else in the world does, maybe more so than many others..

Look how clear and pure the whites of her eyes are. And her mahogany skin is beautiful and unblemished..

And it still is in March of 2013
