A break on the road South

While I did not have time to head into the true South ie: Arba Minch etc..
I did take a day trip down here. I guess they call Awasa the capital of the Southern Nations? half of the fun for me was just getting here...passed my share of car accidents and had to make the mandatory stops to let the cows get out of the road. Maybe I'm a simpleton but I enjoyed the scenery on the way down a bit more than I did the lake itself. Anyway it made for a great break from the dust of Addis.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A great but long day trip from Addis
  • Cons:my first real taste of mosquitos in Ethiopia
  • In a nutshell:Glad I did it
