Bahir Dar












I don't have time to write at length or post many pictures tonight, but I do want to copy down the highlights of our trip to Bahir Dar so that I can remember to come back and fill in the details.

We spent Saturday boating on Lake Tana and watching fishermen in traditional papyrus boats bring in their tilapia. We then crossed the lake to visit two 14th century monasteries and tour a fair-trade coffee farm (orchard?). After that, we traveled by car to the Blue Nile Falls and hiked for a couple of hours to see the falls. It was an amazing visit and the sights we saw were fascinating. I can (and will) write a lot more about it!
