When we woke up the next morning and just wanted to go to breakfast, Lale came to greet us. While we had breakfast with bread and tea, Lale spent his time back in the study to clarify the organizational issues. After he got back from the Tribes he had a lot to do. Nevertheless, he took time for us. So we planned for the next few days (where we could visit one of the tribes at the end of the week) while we all sipped coffee again. A visit to the Jinka Museum and the bank was scheduled for today. That was at least planned for the afternoon. For the morning we let Lale do his job and played with Leka and Kacha, the two youngest Omo-Child children who are therefore not yet in school. The two were always curious, full of energy and also asked us for a bit of chocolate. Especially with these two sweet girls, it was hard for us to imagine that they had been killed because of teeth or an unaccepted pregnancy (Mingi superstition). Of course this also affects to all the Omo children.
In the afternoon we made our way to the Jinka Museum, where there was a collection of artifacts of all tribes in Ethiopia. We were taken by Tamasgen (short Tame), the driver of Omo-Child, who did the daily shopping and brought to the Omo Child home by car. Tame was an extremely funny man, who spoke English pretty well and made us laugh again and again. On the way to the museum, we made a short stop in the bank of Jinka. A rather rundown building, but even with a cash machine. A short time later we arrived at the Jinka Museum, where we met some tourists. After a little guide we went back home.
In the evening we played with Lale and the kids a few more rounds of basketball, which was really funny. Because basketball was definitely his sport. His enthusiasm had no limits and so the whole match was marked by his motivation calls. You could not defeat him, because he is just too big! After a quick shower and delicious dinner we went back to the room, where we all slept soon.
