Another Day in Paradise!
It was hard to leave Lake Lagano today as the sunrise turned it on for us this morning after our stormy night and two Ethiopian dance parties that were happening on either side of our camp. The rolling hills came back with a vengeance before and after lunch as the country side changed yet again from acacia trees to banana plantations, gums and lush green vegetation with thatched huts and mud brick houses dotting the route to Chooko.
The crowds were with us again at lunch and up for a good dance too, mixing it up with some Ethiopian dance moves. One thing you notice about our campsite tonight is the sheer volume of people around the perimeter â€“ they must be about 3 to 4 deep, cheeky, naughty and we must look like something out of National Geographic to them. They’ve enjoyed watching the tents go up, people washing, changing, eating, drinking and generally just hanging around the camp. Bring on that afternoon thunderstorm that has been happening each afternoon for a week now and hopefully it may soften the ground we are camping on, settle the dust and send some of these kiddies home. Another day in paradise!
