From the Afar region in northern Ethiopia in a place called the Danakil Depression. They say it’s the hottest place on earth but they are full of superlatives. The sulfur pools are called Dalol and the lava lake is Ert’Ale. Traditional Afar story told by Halima Hadji. Music by Goblin. Special thanks to Salem Dawit for excellent translation. If you can guess the moral of this tale (there is one) I will do something nice for you.
