Ethiopian Escapades – Day 3 – The “Wasteland” (Addis)


Prior to visiting Ethiopia, I envisioned it as a barren wasteland, devoid of any life. However, what I found was a diverse landscape splattered with colors. Mt. Entoto, for instance, offers a variety of stunning views and hiking trails, and is home to a colorful group of herders.ImageThe view from the top of Mount Entoto, overlooking a nearby village. ImageA man herding cattle from about 3,000 meters above sea level.

These kids must have been professionals as they quickly posed in their kung fu style positions.
