Dalol: The colorful place

The Danakil Depression holds several attractions. In fact, it’s a geological treasure trove, and a mecca for scientists.

One of these attractions is a place called, by the locals, “Dalol,” which means “colorful place.”  The range of colors one sees there varies over time. I’m told that it’s more interesting in the rainy season, but that it’s also less accessible then. All things considered, I think my visit was well-timed, and here are a few images for your enjoyment, both of Dalol proper and the nearby salt cave and mineral springs:

About jewamongyou

I am a paleolibertarian Jew who is also a race-realist. My opinions are often out of the mainstream and often considered "odd" but are they incorrect? Feel free to set me right if you believe so!

    Jewamongyou,
    I am absolutely delighted that you have the time and funds to travel.
    But you have never really answered my question about who you are
    permitted to befriend.
    Are you a MGTOW? You are not presently married, but if you DID
    want to marry, what would you do?
    I don’t think you’d want a non-white, and Aryans are out of the question.
    I don’t see a Jewish woman going for someone with your beliefs.
    Have you overcome your “natural” cravings? If not, how do you preserve
    your sanity?

      When you say “befriend,” do you mean “marry?” I’m permitted to marry anyone I please; I’m old enough that having more children is out of the question. As for somebody my age, who’s already had children, dating outside his race, I’ve already written about this here.

      But you’re right that, as far as women are concerned, I’m not dating material. As for my sanity, some would say I’ve never had it :). So yeah, I “do my own thing,” including traveling.

    Hi, JAY.

    Nice little trip you got there.

    May I ask you a totally unrelated question ? I often read non-Israeli Jews saying how much Israelis are rough to each other. This often crops up when aliyah is discussed. Do you have any explanation to this trait ?

    • jewamongyou says:

      I can’t claim to be an expert on the matter, but I did actually experience some of this rudeness when I first arrived in Israel. My take on it is that as a minority, Jews feel more of a connection to each other. But once that minority status is eliminated (as in the State of Israel), all we’re left with is a bunch of different ethnic groups: “Diversity.” Even though these various ethnic groups acknowledge that the others are also Jews, it still translates into less of a sense of community than otherwise.

        Thank you. I had also wondered whether it might be related to the shift from minority to majority status, but I had not thought about the diversity element…
