Worbasha village in Omo region, Ethiopia - January 7, 2008: A young man for the Hamar people is running accros the back of cattles, a lot of Hamar people are watching the scene, some of them are holding back the cattle. The bull jumping ceremony is an initiation rite in which young men have to run naked four times across the back of a row of cattle. If they could complete this without faltering they are called a man and are qualified to marry, own cattle and have children. The whole festival means several days of feasting and drinking sorghum beer.
