... made it to our hotel compound! We opened the front gate and were confronted by a startled hyena. He had had nowhere to go and was trapped inside the hotel compound, when we entered he was a metre from the gate, luckily our presence and noise scared him off!

One sheep was stuffed into the back of the van. To our disbelief, the other sheep was hoisted, with much effort, onto the top of the minibus. For the next 30 minutes we drove listening to one sheep bleating loudly in the back while the feet of the sheep on the roof slipped around. It ...

Harar, chat, hyenas and dutch beer

A travel blog entry by leoinafrica on Oct 22, 2011

... the little roads and Harari houses, watching the people strawling the streets with their donkeys and goats.

Chat is part of the Harari culture, it's called the capital of chat and indeed the stuff is everywhere and the women sell it in plastic bags on the street side. I got to know two Harari guys, Achmed and Diba that showed me the aunties house/shop and the Muslim market.
At the Muslim market they sell also camel meat which is ...
