HARAR, ETHIOPIA Tiksa Negeri Hyenas roam the streets of the ancient walled city of Harar in eastern Ethiopia every night, seeking scraps of meat to drag to the nearby caves. But residents are not afraid. A family chosen by the town to feed the animals is not daunted by the task despite the dangers that are associated with coming into close quarters with such wild animals. Abbas Yusuf, known as Hyena Man, learnt to feed the hyenas from his father, Yusuf Mume Salleh, who fed them for 45 years before passing the job to his son 13 years ago.

"Hyenas have never attacked the people of Harar after my father started feeding them, unless you harm their babies," Abbas Yusuf said. 26 FEB 2017. HARAR, ETHIOPIA.

REUTERS/TIKSA NEGERI Yusuf Mume Salleh, 70, known as the first Hyena Man, sits near his house. "My father is always thankful that I continued the good work he started and I will pass it onto my children when I grow old." His work is now an attraction, drawing in tourists who came to see the city's ancient mosques nestled within its old stone walls. "I am privileged by God to be a good friend to those misunderstood animals," he said. GALLERY PHOTOS 26/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 19 - 24 , 2017 4 5. "I have a baby hyena in my house and keep it in my bedroom and I'm not worried it will bite me when I sleep." Abbas has given the hyenas names according to their behaviour and appearance. Among them are "Dabbassoo" or "Hairy", "Tuqan Dilii" or "Lazy", and "Qallaa", meaning "skinny". 25 FEB 2017. HARAR, ETHIOPIA.

REUTERS/TIKSA NEGERI To encourage visitors to trust the hyenas, Abbas feeds them directly from his mouth. The hyenas live in caves outside the city and roam the rubbish dumps, also outside the walls. Some hyenas give birth in the ditches in the middle of the city. GALLERY PHOTOS 26/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 19 - 24 , 2017 6 7. "The hyenas are a gift of nature to clean up the city we mess during the day time. Without them the city will be much dirtier," Anisa Mohammed, a 32-year old bread vendor, said. 24 FEB 2017.

REUTERS/TIKSA NEGERI It has been a centre of Islamic culture since it was founded in the 7th century. In the 16th century Emir Nur Ibn Mujahid built a four- metre-high protective wall around the city, pierced by five gates. Every year since the 16th century, to mark the birth of Prophet Mohammed, the city's residents offer the hyenas porridge mixed with butter and goat meat on the "Hakim Mountain", outside the city, believed to be a holy site because the ancient Muslim leaders of the city are buried there. If the hyenas refuse the sacrifice, people believe the country will have bad luck. WRITING BY GEORGE OBULUTSA GALLERY PHOTOS 26/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 19 - 24 , 2017 9 10.

At dawn in Xochimilco, home to Mexico Citys famed floating gardens, farmers in muddied rain boots squat among rows of beets as a group of chefs arrive to sample sweet fennel and the pungent herb known as epazote. By dinnertime some of those greens will be on plates at an elegant bistro 12 miles (20 kilometers) to the north, stewed with black beans in a $60 prix-fixe menu for well-heeled diners. Call it floating-farm-to-table: A growing number of the capitals most in-demand restaurants are incorporating produce grown at the gardens, or chinampas, using ancient cultivation techniques pioneered hundreds of years ago in the pre-Columbian era. While sourcing local ingredients has become fashionable for many top chefs around the globe, it takes on additional significance in Xochimilco (so-chee-MIL-co), where a project linking chinampa farmers with high-end eateries aims to breathe life and a bit of modernity into a fading and threatened tradition. People sometimes think (farm-to-table) is a trend, said Eduardo Garcia, owner and head chef of Maximo Bistrot in the stylish Roma Norte district. Its not a trend. Its something that we humans have always done and we need to keep doing it, we need to return to it. Xochimilco, on the far southern edge of Mexico City, is best-known as the Mexican Venice for its canals and brightly colored boats where locals and tourists can while away a weekend day listening to mariachi music and sipping cold beers. It has also been a breadbasket for the Valley of Mexico since before the Aztec Empire, when farmers first created the floating islands bound to the shallow canal beds through layers of sediment and willow roots. Theres nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world, and Xochimilco is designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. But that World Heritage status and Xochimilco itself are threatened by the pollution and encroaching urbanization that plague the rest of the sprawling metropolis. Enter Yolcan, a business that specializes in placing traditionally farmed Xochimilco produce in Mexico Citys most acclaimed restaurants Those include places like Gabriela Camaras seafood joint Contramar and Enrique Olveras Pujol, which is perhaps the countrys most famous restaurant and regularly makes lists of the worlds best. Yolcan has been around since 2001, but its only in the last year that business has really taken off with the number of restaurant partners increasing by a third during that period to 22. Last month five of them teamed up with Yolcan for dinner to benefit chinampa preservation. The company directly manages about its own farmland and also partners with local families to help distribute their goods, lending a much-needed hand as an intermediary. 26/07/2017 Pictures of the day - July 19 - 24 , 2017 26 27. The thing about the chinampa farmer is that he does not have the time to track down a market or a person to promote his product, said David Jimenez, who works a plot in the San Gregorio area of Xochimilco. Working the chinampas is very demanding. All told Yolcans operation covers about 15 acres (6 hectares) and churns out some 2.5 tons of produce per month. Due to the high salinity of the soil drawn from canal beds, the straw-covered chinampa plots are particularly fertile ground for root vegetables and hearty greens like kale and chard. Diners reserve weeks in advance for a coveted table at Maximo Bistrot, one of three restaurants Garcia runs. Meticulously prepared plates of chinampa-grown roasted yellow carrots with asparagus puree arrive at the table, accompanied by sea bass with green mole sauce and wine pairings in tall glasses. Garcia estimated he gets about two-thirds of his ingredients from Yolcan or other organic farms nearby. He was born in a rural part of Guanajuato state where his family raised corn and largely ate what they grew, so sourcing local is second-nature. I think all of the worlds restaurants should make it a goal to use these alternative ingredients, Garcia said, stirring a pot of beans flavored with the aromatic epazote herb. Even though its a little more expensive, a little more difficult to find. Chinampa produce generally sells for 15 to 100 percent more than comparable goods at the enormous Central de Abasto, the go-to wholesale market for nearly all of Mexico Citys chefs that is so monolithic its competition sets prices across the country. But chefs who buy from Yolcan are happy to pay a premium knowing theyre getting vegetables free of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and also supporting a centuries-old tradition. Diners at Maximo Bistrot also said they enjoyed their meal, especially the burrata with chinampa-grown heirloom tomatoes. One couple said they are willing to pay the prices of these high- end eateries in order to have the best produce. Weve eaten in 26 countries around the world, and for the price and quality, this was awesome, said Kristin Kearin, a 35-year-old masseuse from United States. I honestly think that using small producers is going to come back. TEXT FROM THE AP NEWS STORY, MEXICO CITY FLOATING FARMS, CHEFS TEAM UP TO SAVE TRADITION BY LISA MARTINE JENKINS.
