Ethiopian roads are tricky. Especially the mobile speed bumps make it very difficult to stay on the road. With the mobile speed bumps I refer to all the cattle on the road. Apathetic they walk along on the tarmac roads. Strangely enough you don’t see them on dirt roads. It’s only when the road turns … More HAMIR


I have one goal today: meeting my youth friend and motorcycle buddy, Willem. But before we meet I still have a long 500 km journey ahead.
