Southern Ethiopia and Northern Kenya

 

A typical village hut


10,000km! 


The Ethiopian staple injera (a kind of sour pancake) served with everything, even pasta


Tej (honey) wine looking like magic potion

Hippos and Crocs in Chamo Lake 


Meeting the Dorze: a traditional weaver community of Southern Ethiopia


The Dorze woven blankets (and cool hairstyles)


Outside (left) and inside their 12m high huts 


Fear the mighty Dorze warrior (that's real leopard skin and the shield is made from hippo)


Max's first football game in 6 months (they won!)


Staring down at the hot, barren Lower Omo valley below us



The people of the lower Omo valley



 

Village of the Hamer people in Southern Ethiopia 



 

Children from the Hamer tribe



Painting and decorating Hamer style



 


 Dancing and singing at the Hamer Bull Jumping ceremony



 

Cycling to the end of the world, or that's how it felt: the Ethiopian police checkpoint before crossing no man's land in to Kenya


 


 

'Cycling' along Lake Turkana 


A big jerry can of water and box of rations very generously donated by the Kenyan army. We never knew corned beef could taste so good!


Getting a puncture much to the delight of the local kids - the first of 6 that day, thanks to the thorn trees.


Finding an 'official' border crossing in to Kenya

More English than England (except for the monkeys) - the beautiful country cottage we camped at.
