I almost fell over backwards when this lad came up to me and started chatting in Afrikaans in a real Cape Coloured accent. His name is Ahmed and he comes from Bo-Kaap. His father is Ethiopian and he left RSA ten years ago. He wants to visit Sudan and the most beautiful thing for would be a swimming pool. I could fully understand his reasoning having just left the desert. A car accident was the funniest thing he has seen. (I hope no-one was hurt). He lives in a ash brick house. He wants his son to be a pilot. The sport he enjoys is swimming, but wishes he was back in Cape Town to swim and support Ajax.
Ethiopian food is very different and very tasty:
Our motel for the night in Yabello:
No safety regulations here. Road sweeper?
Ethiopia as green as Ireland:
Avo and Mango juice combo - very tasty!!
