    ... a guide. We wandered the cobble stone roads and witnessed local life, during this time we met several Hararians, or as they call us - neighbours, as they have so many relatives living in Toronto. There was no need to tell them Vancouver was on the west coast.

    Our last night in Harar we went for dinner in the New City, after finishing a feast we took a tuk tuk to the entrance of the Old City from here we had to walk to our hotel. We had completed his short jaunt ...

    ... men have been feeding packs of hyenas raw meat outside the gates for over 50 years as part of a ritual. Recently they have decided to allow visitors to partake in the ceremony and I can now add to my list of accomplishments that I fed hyenas from a stick in my mouth.

Mark is now awake too and thought he would have a shower (I had already decided last night that I would give it a miss – very sad bathroom!) but he has also backed down and will wait for Awash – sound like a better place to get clean.
