Hundreds of miles of desert littered with dead cattle, and cattle and goats on the move as the rains approach…huge herds being driven to pasture.
Very very hot and heavy military presence…police some in uniform… some without…. AK 47′s and heavy caliber machine guns on the roadside and on vehicles.
Complete change of pace having hit the mountains of Ethiopia and the rain.
We had a good look round the bizarre castles of Gondar ( which we had seen before on our last trip) there has been some very good repair work done by world heritage, or whoever they entrust the work to.
