    Default Ethiopia Trip Updates

    Since this section doesn't get a huge amount of traffic, nor is there a lot of Ethiopia specific info regularly posted, I thought I'd post a link to:

    http://www.hoperoad.co.za/category/ethiopia/

    where I'm trying to be a little more systematic about posting updates for this leg of our trip.

    I'm mostly posting Pix for family and friends at the moment (Ethiopian hotel wi-fi is only useable from midnight), but I've included a "specifics section" on each Ethiopia post, detailing where we stayed, routes taken etc. I'm assuming that anyone who spends time in Ethiopia will use the Bradt guide, so I'm mostly mentioning stuff that differs or needs an update from that. Its pretty sketchy (did i mention the wifi?) but feel free to ask me for more details.

    When I get a chance, I'll compile it into a single trip report here, but this may be useful to people before I'm able to pull that together (travelling with a 5 year-old is *very* time consuming!).

    I currently have up:
    Moyale->Yabello -> Negele Borena (the Southern birdwatching circuit),
    Bale Mountain National Park (Rira & Dinsho).
    Next up is Harer (we arrive tomorrow), then Awash NP, Addis, and the we start the Northern Historical circuit.

    Yours
