"It's a volcano, but not as we know it. This cerulean eruption takes place in the Danakil Depression, a low-lying plain in Ethiopia. The volcano’s lava is the usual orange-red – the blue comes from flames produced when escaping sulphuric gases burn." More over at: http://buff.ly/U3yVOb

This is the Suri Tribe in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, one of the most culturally rich tribal regions on the African continent.
