photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Danakil region, Ethiopia, on the summit of the Volcano Erta Ale.
In this photo the portrait of a young Afar guide who accompanies travelers to the edge of the crater.
The Erta Ale is the most active volcano in Ethiopia and the Danakil region is one of the most vulnerable places of our world: the fire is just below our feet, five kilometers away.
The Afar people are the inhabitants of this region. They are nomads mainly devoted to sheep farming and to the extraction of minerals. Their traditional life is extremely hard, and the young people who do not want to work in mines become guides for adventurous tourists visiting these areas.
The Afar people seem to have appeared from nowhere. They are a sort of miracle: they have kept a strong identity without having a testimony to their story. They are nomads struggling with the hostility of both climate and land. They have gained, in time, a good reputation as warriors. They have adapted to survive in a harsh and impossible land.

Photo by @hannahreyesmorales | Jessica Catiis, a Filipino domestic worker, died on July 4, 2017, in Saudi Arabia. Her remains, covered with just a loin cloth in a wooden box, were not returned to the Philippines until seven months later. Her family put her to rest in a beautiful ceremony, with her remains transported by a horse-drawn carriage. The whole barrio came and wept for their girl, who was said to be "full of dreams" and "always smiling." They were told she had committed suicide, though she had just been talking excitedly about applying for work in Taiwan days before. They have received none of her belongings. They sent her off with yellow flowers. One in ten Filipinos work abroad. Read more about the Filipino Diaspora in the December issue. #Family #love #FilipinoDiaspora

Greetings earthlings. This is 7-year-old kid astronaut and first-grader Harrison Sheldon. 🚀He’s the star of @smallstepsaregiantleaps, a photo project that his dad, editorial photographer and nonprofit media consultant Aaron Sheldon, started when Harrison was 4 years old.
Instagram: Aaron, is there a game attached to the project?
Aaron: When we decide to visit a place for the project, we talk about what we might see there. During our visit, I have Harry compare what we thought we might see with the actual experience. My favorite part of each shoot is hearing his thoughts about the places and what he liked about each place as we look at the pictures together over a post-mission doughnut, cookie or ice-cream cone.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what’s the best part of being an astronaut?
Harrison: Exploring places, meeting astronauts, bouncing on hotel beds, having cool exploring gear and snacks.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Harrison: Superhero.
Aaron: What if your plan to create your own superpowers doesn’t work out? What would you be if you can’t be a superhero?
Harrison: Police officer and construction worker in space.
Check out today’s story to explore along with Harrison and Aaron on some of their adventures.
