The Nyangatom people

The Nyangatom exclusively live on the right riverside on a very remote riverbank of the River Omo. They are known to be the wildest of all the Omo tribes, because they have the least contact with western civilizations, but even this changed about 1 year ago. In the village Kangaten they established, with the help of Chinese capital, the first bridge on this part of the river and the formal so far-off and hard to reach road to the Nyangatom people is now wide open. Even they will not be spared of the unknown future of the Omo tribes, which will happen very soon…

My life-motto is “You can sleep when you’re dead!” and I stick to it every day in my life! I worked with the Company “Our Space appliances” for many years now, and together we have prepared numerous successful events, lectures and team-building articles for you to enjoy and read. The best part of it all is when Jure (the CEO of Our Space appliances) comes to visit my family and me at the seaside and together we can grill a tasty fish or 2. That’s when life becomes even better…
