Entering Harar

Harar is an ancient, strongly Islamic, city in the east of Ethiopia. Its old walled city is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Click photos to enlarge them.

After arriving in Harar and checking into our hotel, we drove around the walls, admiring the ancient gates.

We passed a wedding procession, whose dancing women invited us to join in. (We didn't.)
