Mark and I were both thinking this could be the same and ...

Geladas of the Simien Mountains

... Mountains National Park. The road wasn't so good so 120 km would take almost 3 hours. Sian just reminded me of the Jewish village as we left Gondar. We passed a village of Fellasha with the star of David symbol. This area is the home of the remainder of the descendants of the 1000 Jews that came with Menelik I when he returned to Ethiopia from Jerusalem where he visited his father King Solomon and was given the Ark of the Covenant. The Jews continued to live ...
