June 17, 2012. After 20 gruesome hours we made it to Ethiopia last Friday. We spent the first two nights in Moyale and then  with an overnight stop in Hawassa headed for the capital.

As you can see I needed some time to recuperate – and Addis Ababa proved a wonderful place to do so.
Tomorrow we’ll get back on the bus for the classic Northern Ethiopia route: Bahir Dar (and the monasteries of Lake Tana), Lalibela, Mek’ele, Axum, Debark, Gonder.
