Afar means "the best" or "the first", making it a name that honours the extremely proud nature of this people. They live in a vast rocky, dry and desert-like land. This forces them to move about constantly, like the wind, in search of an element that is essential but very rare in the region where they live: water. Culema and Ali Mohamed are Afar that, like many others, live from the extraction and sale of salt from the Danakil vale -the second deepest in the planet and one of the hottest areas too. Sono and Momima are an Afar married couple that live in the Awash park. Sono learned to drive tractors and now works for an agricultural firm.


Sinopsis: Afar significa "el mejor" o "el primero", un nombre que hace honor al carácter extremadamente orgulloso de este pueblo. Viven en un vasto territorio pedregoso, seco y desértico; que les obliga a desplazarse continuamente, como el viento, en busca de un elemento esencial, aunque muy escaso en la región que habitan: el agua. Culema y Ali Mohamed son dos Afar que, como otros muchos, viven de la extracción y comercialización de la sal en la depresión Danakil, la segunda más profunda del planeta y una de las zonas más calurosas. Sono y Momima es un matrimonio Afar que vive en el parque Awash. Sono aprendió a conducir tractores y ahora trabaja en una empresa agrícola.
