Making a Reed Boat on Lake Awasa Ethiopia

Making a Reed Boat on Lake Awasa Ethiopia
This is a video showing some guy in his underwear making a boat out of lake grass. I want to call them cattails, however I know this is wrong. It is interesting to think about, as I pan to the left with the camera you will see and Islamic girls in brightly dressed clothing.

I never thought about it until later, however now I keep wondering what she was thinking about. She was squatting as I approached, concentrating on watching the guy in his underwear, making this boat.

Sometime I am positive the worlds makes no sense, here is young girls in brightly colored Islamic clothing, very nicely dress watching with great interest a man in blue underwear jumping up and down on a boat. I guess Islamic girls can look at boys, the boys just cannot look at girls, these guys are doing this sexist stuff all wrong.

I think, is this a Papyrus Boat, is this what they called Papyrus Reeds, there is no way to learn, as normal I am in one of them overestimated situations where I know a lot, but cannot find the labels.




He is using wire to hold this boat together, the nose of the boat turns up, this is the same as shoes.



The boats turn this color after a few days, and here is good glimpse of the reeds he is using.



It is not obvious to me why this boat does not just flip over, somehow it is stable, however not clear. Somehow the center of gravity is correct.
