Driving from Bahir Dar to Addis, Ethiopia, December 4-5, 2015

Bahir Dar is on Lake Tana and it's often referred to as the Ethiopian Riviera.  There were some beautiful and interesting plants in our camp site such as a banana tree in bloom, amaryllis and a funny tree with huge seed pods-


Most people in Ethiopia do not own a vehicle.  Tuk tuks are cheap and everywhere-


We crossed the White Nile-


 and it's valley-


going from 1061 meters to 2500 meters.  It took about 4 hours because of the rough and steep road-

Driving through a village, all of a sudden the street was white.  I'm not sure what the celebration was about-


More flora along the way-


Typical Ethiopia-



Harvest time-


Ethiopians work really hard-



and they walk miles like this!

We're spending 2 full days in Addis Ababa and I'm looking forward to the sightseeing and my own hotel room!
