pix like i promised...

it's bloody difficult to post pics most of the time from this continent. so, i had to settle for these to show.

another bit of news: my blog seems to be blocked from my view while in ethiopia. could it be an overly sensitive government censorship.

just in case you want to know, i'm back in good ol' addis ababa. where to next? dunno.


left to right: mountains, me, mountains. i have to credit the armed guard for this pic. he seems to have the artistic touch, eh, despite a slight slant to the compostion.

ever since learning the alphabet using picture books way back in ancient times, i've always wanted to see an ibex. well, i came across a whole bunch of them in the National Park. mmm...ibex(i).

contrary to popular belief, there aren't any child labour laws in ethiopia. this kid, one of many, look after the sheep/cows/goats (hell, the hills are alive, eh) of ethiopia..

next, i'll try to publish pix of my rented mule.

Did you beat it? The rented mule, I mean.

I don't think I've ever heard of an ibex??

Have you already gone to Sudan and back, or are you still intending on going?

Nice pics, Bubba. Eat something though, will ya? You're starting to look like anorexia man again...

Does your return to Addis Ababa mean that a visit to Sudan is out?

The scenery looks amazing and the mule looks, well... stubborn. looking at a map of Africa, I am not sure where you can go next...?
