Tadjoura, Djibouti - the slaughter of a goat on the beach

Djibouti lies in Northeast Africa on the Gulf of Aden at the southern entrance to the Red Sea.  It shares a border with Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia.  Three of the earth's tectonic plates meet and are parting here, creating some amazing geological anomalies.  These photos were taken in Tadjoura, a tiny village on the coast. The people rarely see tourists. The family below let me watch them slaughter a goat - it was a very sombre experience, the children around knew exactly what was going on.
