Gash-Barka, Eritrea

This card came as a private swap. Eee! It shows a Hidareb woman. Hidareb are one of the nine ethnic groups of Eritrea. They make up 2.5% of the population and inhabit the northwestern valley. Most of them are nomadic and travel great distances in search of pasture. So writes the sender of the card.

I could not find any information on the stamp.

    This is one of my missing countries - so my collection is very jealous of you ;-)
