Smart way of begging

Along all the way on our tour in south Ethopia kids are attacking the tourist and start begging. This small tiny boy from the Ari tribe in Jinka has practised a very smart way of begging. He caught a hedgehog and offered it for one Birr equal to 4,5 Eurocent. The people trapped by his smartness, paid the Birr and told him to keep the trading goods.

Location: Jinka, Ethopia
