  • Omo Valley Tour - Part Two == The Suri Surma== We set off early in the morning with Fitsum, the owner and manager of Omo Valley Tour, who would lead the rest of the trip for us. Fitsum has the expertise with the more remote Posted by danjali in East Africa Adventure | Apr 17, 2019
  • Addis Ababa and Omo Valley Tour - Part One== Addis Ababa == We arrived in Addis on time on February 8 — a Friday — and, after a little bit of a hassle at the immigration office, we were walking down the ramp to meet our dear Posted by danjali in East Africa Adventure | Apr 9, 2019
  • ETHIOPIA [video provider Posted by MikeSebastian in Imagine the World | Mar 8, 2019
  • Ethiopia - Amazing Peoples of the Omo Valley==Itinerary== We departed Khartoum, Sudan and flew to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. From there we flew to the southwest corner of the country to the Omo Valley. We spent 8 days in this area Posted by janejoe in Sudan, Ethiopia & Djibouti - 2019 | Feb 15, 2019
  • Ethiopia: Meandering around MekeleThe first day of the new year was our last day in Ethiopia. We headed back to Asimba Guest House (where Chris, the proper British gentleman, is the owner) after spending the previous night in a different hotel. Chris picked Posted by karenanddennis in Roaming Rwanda | Jan 19, 2019
  • Ethiopia: Erta Ale volcanoSleeping on the floor with two buzzsaws was no problem for me, but Karen (and everyone else) had a tough time. A walk through Abala (pronounced Ahb ala), however, contained enough interesting sights to pry open weary eyes. As we Posted by karenanddennis in Roaming Rwanda | Jan 15, 2019
  • Ethiopia: Danakil DepressionAfter filling up on another tasty breakfast at our guesthouse, the tour company picked us up and we set off for our four-day tour. We shared a car with a kind German medical student and her mother. After some chitchat Posted by karenanddennis in Roaming Rwanda | Jan 13, 2019
  • Ethiopia: Mekele and Tigray ChurchesEthiopia. Prior to spending about one week in Ethiopia, my vision of the country for decades was a land of high, rocky mountains and lots of sand and sun. Maybe this view came from images of the famine in Ethiopia Posted by karenanddennis in Roaming Rwanda | Jan 12, 2019
  • Nike PG 3 NASA delivery dateLast week, the Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation white version was just sold out. The video game co-branded topic was over. Maybe the message of Paul George new generation signature shoe Nike PG 3 was exposed, and Paul George will Posted by goodshoes2018 in Good Shoes | Jan 9, 2019
  • Day 22, MoyaleA very early rise to ensure bus seats. It was an easier "rush" this time as we set off by 5.30 am. It was a mix of scenery - starting off green and dense but soon arid and Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 17, 2018
  • Day 21, DilaOur patients were feeling better and so we decided to hit the road. More omelette and juice for breakfast before a walk to the station. Awasa people appear more affluent and town more cosmopolitan. We only travelled Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 15, 2018
  • Day 20, AwasaHow plans can change! The others got the bus times wrong (Ethiopian time, not western). Meantime, Cooch had been diagnosed with malaria as well. Dropping like mossies and not even many in sight. So just Kev Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 14, 2018
  • Day 19, AwasaCan't be complacent about malaria! Cookie's clinic check after an overnight fever taught us all that! More health concerns and a couple more days in Awasa for rehab. Had a nice lakeside walk before a hill climb Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 13, 2018
  • Day 18, Addis Ababa - AwasaMore entertaining confusion at the bus station. Boarding is 'predatory' and bus fumes everywhere. It was a cramped trip through the Rift Valley Lake region. Some nice (more African) views of valley plains, acacia trees, birds and Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 13, 2018
  • Day 16, LalibelaAnother swerving trip to the airport. At least we got taxi costs reimbursed. This time we got off on a small 20 seater Otto - over Blue Nile Falls before a change of planes at Bahir Dar. Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 10, 2018
  • Day 17, Lalibela --> Addis AbabaAnother early rise to see remaining four churches. Excellent structures and a labyrinth of connecting tunnels and trenches. Great to visit but a distant second to Petra. Got ride to airport with crazy local and flew to Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 11, 2018
  • Day 15, GondarThe frustrations of travelling! We got our lift out to the airport by 7.30 am for our 8.50 am departure, but were still waiting at 12.30 pm when we heard it had been cancelled (or had we been "bumped Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 9, 2018
  • Day 14, GondarGood to have a leisurely day without travels. We firstly went to the bank to complete the long process of changing money. Then we visited the castles - King Fasil and his descendants, seven castles from 17th Century Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 9, 2018
  • Day 13, --> GondarAnother long uncomfortable 12 hours in the tent. Pineapple for brekkie before preparing for our 32 km walk out. Luckily, we flagged down a truck and scammed a dusty lift in the back for 10 Birr each. Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 8, 2018
  • Day 12, Simien MountainsNo ills from our dubiously-cooked sheep meat! We rose early after a long, cold, uncomfortable sleep. Four of us set off following scout (Desailan) to view the brilliant Emietgogo Peak (3,930 m) which supplied panoramic, unmatched views. Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 7, 2018
  • Day 11, Simien MountainsAfter a long cold night in tents we were up for a disappointing sunrise. Set off as temperatures rose for second hut. Seen some great sights - huge cliff face waterfall and lots or gelada baboons (lion monkey). Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 7, 2018
  • Day 10, Gondar - Simien MtnsEarly 5.00 am departure after fighting mice overnight and rescuing our trek food. Had our final wash in the 44g drum of cold water! Our ride got us to Debark early enough but from there it went downhill. Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 4, 2018
  • Day 9, Bahir Dar - GondarEarly rise for 6.00 am bus. Cooch feeling very poorly this time. My cold annoys me with nightly coughing but resisted other ailments (so far!) Bus finally left about 6.40 am and after luggage arguments (more chaos). Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 4, 2018
  • Day 8, Bahir DarHad a nice hotel brekkie before organising a boat trip around the Lake Tana Islands with George. Cookie was not up to it but Kev was recovered from his spew at the falls (always in fear of succumbing!) Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 2, 2018
  • Day 7, Bahir DarCookie had a restless night and was a non-starter for our trip to Tissisat Falls. We hustled for a seat on a local bus - 9.00 am. It was an uncomfortable 60 minute trip surrounded by curious locals Posted by shaneo15 in Africa | Dec 1, 2018
