  Blue Nile Gorge
by sachara

Favorite thing: After we walked for some time along the edge of the Blue Nile Gorge, we saw the road winding down. We got again in our bus to continue our route.

The winding road dropped more than 1000 M into the Blue Nile Gorge. At the bottom of the gorge we had to cross the river by a bridge, which, like the winding road, was built by the Italians.

The bridge is a beautiful piece of civil engineering. It's strictly forbidden to take a picture of the bridge. I don't know why, because everywhere in the area you can buy a coloured postcard of the bridge in full glory.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
