Day 78
Today: 300 km
Total: 14,209 km

Today we again took on the road to Arba Minch. We first stopped at Shashemene to visit the Rastafarians and to see the museum dedicated to Haille Selassie. The Rasta guys were very friendly when we arrived (that’s a given because they smoke the happy leaves). Our stay there was short …

... floor space in their hut. You even get a pet cow for the night!

My original plan in heading south was to get into the Omo Valley, containing numerous indigenous tribes. It's a little pricey, as you need a jeep and guide to get to some places, but I found some people I got along with to split the costs.

The scout mentioned snakes, and I think he said, 'taipan' - fortunately we didn't encounter any. The forest was so green, almost tropical - not quite the Ethiopia that Bob Geldof showed the world. The two hours just flew by and all too soon it was time to get back to Paradise Lodge for lunch ...

... on hilltops and is split up into communities, with each community having a main hut. In order to enter a Konso village, you must pass through a gate and a series of narrow alleys and concentric stone walls.

In the middle are the middle-aged men, women and children and in the inner and highest ...
