Description: The village Arkwasiye bordering the Simien Mountains National Park . It was founded around 2007 , when the National Park was enlarged . The old location , just a few km away , was blocking a traditional migration route of the highly endangered Ethiopian Walia Ibex . The nights in the Ethiopian Highlands are very cold and with sunset smoke from open fires in the huts is rising over the village . As the huts do not have chimneys the smoke is escaping through te roof and the walls . Africa , East Africa , Ethiopia , October 2010
