Learn how to weave with the people of Dorze Village, one of Ethiopia's small ethnic groups. Weaving represents the tribe's main profession, and you get familiar with making clothes and carpets, as well as furniture. Spend time in their bamboo-and-wood houses that rise more than 10 m (32 ft), try their specific food, and enjoy the tribe's hospitality. Note that refusing something they offer may offend your hosts.
