Afar Bride, Djibouti

"Sebera Seko, a Muslim bride from the family of the Sultan of Tadjourah, enhances her already considerable beauty with some of the most exotic gold jewelry found in the Horn of Africa. Because of her father's involvement in the dhow sea trade, she is given jewelry that comes from as far away as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, and India. [A dhow is an Arab type of sailing vessel.]"
