Photographer's Note

Down Asmara is just what it is. The capital of Eritrea is located at 2400 m altitude. The meaning of Asmara is unification or the united. The legend says that three tribes came together and formed a single unity...Asmara. This picture is taken a Sunday afternoon along the way that leds to Massawa, maybe 7 km from the capital. I parked the car and walked down hill. The sun was shining and there was something in the air. At the corner you can see the old rail road build by the Italians during the colonial era. This railroad goes all the way down to the city port of Massawa. The train is operational only for happenings, you have to rent it.
