|We visited Portuguese Bridge, 100 kilometers Northwest of Addis.|
It was built by Ethiopians in the early 19 century in an old
Portuguese style. Unfortunately, the mammoth waterfalls were
dry so we hope to go again after the rainy season.
|Prickly pear cactus grows on the mountains. There were a few flowers but the oblong fruits (kulkwll) were not ripe yet. The cattle didn't mind, they ate the needle covered leaves along the steep slope.|
