What are the most interesting things youâ€™ve seen along the road?
Mel: On the hillside in The Gorge, there was a beautiful man with glistening, wet black skin showering beneath a waterfallâ€”stark naked.
Bernie: The cows thrashing the grain. Itâ€™s very neat because we used to work at the grain. We actually have an old thrasher.
Rae: The foosball tables in Ethiopian towns and the women winnowing the grain.
Jamie: These old women, bent over, on bare feet, carrying who knows how many pounds of water. Bare feet! And no plastic bags.
Natalia: A dead cow, definitely dead, twice the size of a normal cow, about to explode, with the butt half-way on the road.
Bernd: The landscape itself and how the people are living. The Gorge.
Bent: The people in the small townsâ€¦the number of people you have to cycle through. To speak to the children while they run maybe a kilometer with you. And of course, the sunset over the Gorge, very positive, beautiful.
Bruno: The women mixing cow manure and making cow pies, with hay. Astonishing, a shock! I understand they donâ€™t want to waste anything, but really a shock.
Harrison: The landscape. I was surprised by the number of trees in Ethiopia.
