Where I stayed
What I did
Lake Tana Monastries
A 9 hour bus ride through the country side with no toilet on board and severe traveler's diarrhea.
Charlie had to beg the driver to pull over several times and then dash off to find somewhere to relieve herself. It was an awful situation.
By the time we got to Bahir Dar Charlie was a wreck and when quizzed about her hotel preference all she could reply was "All I want...is to be near a toilet"
The main attraction of Bahir Dar are the Island monasteries
After 3 nights in Bahir Dar my throat had still not improved and I was unable to eat or speak without heavy pain killers. I spoke with another doctor who said that my throat was infected and that the antibiotic (Amoxillin) I was taking was most likely fake. I moved on to a different batch of Amoxillin followed by another night in Bahir Dar and then further North to Gondor
