Tesseney / ተሰነይ (Eritrea) - Women's day parade

Another shot of the preparations for the International Women's Day parade. In Eritrea, women were among the fighters who struggled for the nation's independence (1961-1991) and they're still recruited into military. That's why those women wearing traditional cloathing are carrying heavy weapons - mainly Kalashnikow rifles.

Tesseney / ተሰነይ (Eritrea) - Former Shell Fuel Station

On Tesseney's main square, there must have been once a Shell fuel station - at least the sign on the building means "Shell". Shell is gone from Eritrea since long ago, Total and Tamoil remaining as the only fuel station operators.
