Wild Himba tribe
Hello Dear Readers and thank you very much that you would like to meet another wild Himba tribe with a travel blog. I oni podobnie jak dzikie plemiona znad rzeki Omo pragną żyć jak najdłużej w zgodzie z przyrodą i otaczającym światem. So let's move to Wild Africa for a while to get to know their lives and everyday life.
Namibia is also famous for its Himba tribe.
Thanks to a travel blog, we managed to gather information, that Namibia, although still a young country, has already achieved a high position in the world, thanks to the uranium ore deposits found here and the abundance of diamonds. However, as it is worth emphasizing, the country's priceless wealth are charming women from the wild Himba tribe.
Their uniqueness is seen in keeping the unusual proportion of the body, his slim figure, prominent lips and rusty color of the skin which they owe to the ocher that covers the body, which protects their owners against excessive escalation of sunlight as well as against ubiquitous insects. The wild Himba tribe lives in Namibia and Angola and belongs to one of the most primeval ethnic groups.
The difficult art of survival is painted in the emblem.
As we know, life in Africa is not easy and requires the inhabitants to have some steadfast qualities such as:perseverance, hard work, patience and humility towards what we have no influence on. The inhabitants of the wild Himba tribe, as well as many other tribes, such as the wild tribe from the Omo River, try to give meaning to life and live as best they can. Therefore, they breed cows and goats, they also spend time growing golden corn fields.
When the first wells are built, it is so much easier for them, that they have water in place and do not have to travel so often in search of such valuable sources of water. For good reason symbolem Namibii jest welwiczja osobliwa która także zdobi godło kraju, due to its amazing ability to survive in extreme conditions.
Peculiar velvitsa is actually a tree, which delighted Charles Darwin himself, because it is able to extract moisture directly from the fog i tym samym jest w stanie długo żyć nie mając wody. She is an example for the wild Himba tribe for whom she is a true teacher of life.
Bricklaying, plastering is a task for women.
So let's go with a travel blog to a village inhabited by the wild Himba tribe ,and let's get to know their everyday life. Główne miejsce zajmuje tutaj zagroda do której budowy służą gałęzie pozyskane z mopane trees które przypomina motyle skrzydła. Here livestock like cows find a safe haven, sheep and goats.
Pozostały plac zajmują cottages- ondjuwo wykonane także ze wspomnianych gałęzi trwale umocowanych dzięki ziemi, cow cakes and ashes. Cow urine is used to dilute this "masonry", for water is a priceless gift. The entire construction of the house is done by women and this place also has an important advantage, because inside there is a pleasant coolness that allows you to survive even the greatest heat, even in summer 40 degrees Celsius.
The power of femininity, a model of excellence.
People from the wild Himba tribe are always guided by the good of others and will not refuse to help when the need arises. This happens when a neighbor's animal moves too far away, then they help this family find them quickly. If a woman becomes ill and cannot look after her child, others rush to help, and in addition they will cook dinner, they will wash and bring drought from the forest.
A woman from the wild Himba tribe is a model of strength and responsibility for the fate of the tribe. He does have a lot of tasks, because she not only deals with the preparation of provisions for her husband who will participate in the shepherd's expedition for several weeks, but he also has to take care of the house on an ongoing basis, to raise children who are surrounded by special care and who are therefore happy and smiling, weave baskets, loosen corn plots and replenish food supplies. So the fate of many African women is similar to that of the wild tribes of the Omo River, which show that strength lasts primarily in the nature of man and difficulties make us stronger and more resistant to what life brings.
The African corner of perfume.
In today's perfume corner we will learn about the civet secreted by the perianal glands of animals from the Wyveridae family. Civet has a very strong and irritating smell, which, combined with musk, ranks among the more floral aromas used in the perfume industry. Another substance that comes from the Cape hyraceum living in this part of the world, which, after appropriate preparation, is also used for the production of perfumes.
Thank you, Dear Reader, for today's meeting with the travel blog, for your valuable attention and time. We will be glad if you stay with us!
