      ... called Hyrex which are related to the elephant family but look like a cross between a large possum and small wombat. The road was the main highway to Somaliland where trucks went one way delivering chat and coming back with Somalian contraband. We stopped at a market to check it all out. Tonight we visited the feeding of the hyenas a Harar specialty where people can feed the hyenas by holding a pice of meat on a stick in their mouth. Russell was the only game ...

      ... the fourth holiest city of Islam by Sunni Muslims, with 82 mosques, three of which dates the 10th century, Harar is very different to the rest of Ethiopia. In many ways it appears poorer than other areas despite its huge chat exportation to Somalia and Djibouti. Sugar cane is also grown and large buckets of canes are carried by donkey to the markets. The countryside is very hilly as we are up in the highlands again, and very similar to western NSW or ...

Staring at their face 6 inches from yours was terrifying ...

      ... we see a car parked with its lights on and a crowd of 8 to 10 people looking intently at a man and some large animals. It is true, the "hyena man" is here and it looks like we can brave the exposure to these carnivores to take our turn in this ritual.
      We had told the kids in advance that we hoped to be able to feed the hyenas tonight. So…Ross is the first to speak…"Hey, where is the fence? You don't feed raw meat to wild ...
