Simien Mountains, Ethiopia, November 27-28, 2015
It was a 2.5 hour drive to the Simien Mountains-
where I had signed up for 3 days and 2 nights of trekking. Why you ask? Good question. I hate hiking, trekking, mountain climbing, whatever you want to call it, I hate it. Needless to say, I came home after the first sleep and this morning's walk to the waterfall. My knees were starting to hurt from all the up/down business so I packed it in.
I could urinate more than what this waterfall is doing-
The Gelada Baboons are pretty cool. There are about 20,000 in the park-
Other wildlife includes the thick billed raven who has a white spot on its head-
Most people don't have cars so government run, public transportation looks like this-
Birthday cake for breakfast? Sounds great to me!
Donkeys, sheep, people, horses and carts are all over the roads. Our driver is continuously honking as a warning that we are passing. The area is very arable and fields are small but well looked after. It appears they get at least 2 crops/year and all work is done manually. There are a lot of rocks everywhere, especially in the towns where they are used for fences and just piled in front of homes and shops. It's a crazy place but the people are super friendly and non hasslers. I am enjoying it here.
