Although Addis is a huge city (the 4th largest in Africa) we didn’t find much to do except walk miles through the congested streets have a day of luxury at the Sheraton and visit Lucy….. the 3.2 million year old one in the National Museum!
Whilst we were in Addis we bumped into Brian Thompson who despite being paralyzed from the waist down is driving the length of Africa in his landrover supporting Help for Heroes…. that puts things in perspective….
If you would like to support H4H please visit Brian Thompson
We sorted out the paperwork for the next leg south to Kenya and the Marsabit road and headed off through the most beautiful countryside with constant stream of humanity all over the road at least they were vaguely predictable and walked more or less in a straight line.
The animals on the other hand were everywhere and completely fearless…with inevitable consequences ..thank goodness for a large van and bull bars.
