BONGA, ETHIOPIA:  Men, women, and children relax in the Dadiban hot springs in a rural area on December 3, 2012 outside Bonga, Ethiopia. People from all over the region come and visit and stay for days or even weeks as the spring is known to have healing powers. This Kaffa region is known for its coffee production, wild coffee grown in high altitudes. This region is the original home of the coffee plant, coffee Arabica which grows in the forest of the highlands. The red berries are the main source of income in the area. Children and cattle also drink coffee. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
