Gondar rest day #2

Today a second rest day in Gondar and chance to be a tourist. In particular on my list was the royal enclosure wall that surrounded six different castles built in the 1600s and 1700s. Also the Debre Berhan Selassie Church with painted ceiling and walls. However, also fun just to walk through and see different places in town. Below are a few images visiting Gondar.

Delicious fruit drink

Jimmy Buffet fans would like Ethiopia. The traditional clock times start at what would be 6am on a US clock. Hence, the clock above is actually a little past our 11am in the morning.

Warrior statue downtown

Many things can be bought on the street, in this case coffins.

Simple housing but with a satellite dish.

Even simpler housing on side of a hill

TDA has also posted our upcoming schedule which includes two days cycling, a rest day, five days cycling to reach Addis Adaba. Ethiopia is hilly so this should be challenging. I once again have a local SIM card. I don’t know yet whether the data network is as good as Sudan or Egypt so will need to see how many updates I can do from the road.
