I was out in the village of Felasha outside Gondar city in Ethiopia when I came across this hut. The pictures at the front seemed dubious. I got close to take a look and what did I see? Two girls in a state of déshabillé lying on saloon chairs getting a beauty treatment. The two workers saw me and froze. I backed off immediately, muttering a string of apologies. The girls must have seen the embarrassment on my face because I heard peals of laughter as I took a path downhill to get to the main road.

This is a functional beauty parlour, Ethiopian style.

Are these the same Falashas who consider themselves Jewish?

Yes that's the same village whose Jewish population was eventually airlifted to Israel. Although there are no Jews left in the village or in the rest of the country, the locals have turned this place into a tourist attraction. The old synagogue still stands but entry is restricted by the villagers who demand money to let you go in and see (there's no official entrance fee).

I don't think anyone living there still claims to be Jewish. At least I didn't meet anyone who did.

Took this in my early teens, while studying photography at school. Spent a while today scanning old negatives.
