Sisyphus’ Ordeal – Ethiopia, Afar

A remarkable cultural heritage of the Afar Region of Ethiopia (African continent), a region with one of the harshest environments on Earth, and a true testament to human resilience: the salt miner caravan of the Danakil Depression desert is as impressive as it is humbling.
These miners and camel herders make daily travels to the middle of the salt flats and collect blocks of it under extreme conditions, to be sold for amounts so small that are almost incomprehensible to most of us.
But the most impressive of this entire ordeal is knowing that it will carry on tomorrow and the day after, day after day. Much like Sisyphus’ Ordeal.
