Portuguese Bridge in Ethiopia

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.
