Back on the road .. !
After the days in Addis the legs is super' again :-)
But meeting the 'Ethiopian wellcome' of stonethrowing and screaming kids quickly turns the mood back for both me and my supplydriver.
I have hugely enjoyed allmost every singlekm of world run one and two running straight through Europe, Asia, Australia, N. America, Middle East and N. Africa. The People, the Nature, the Friendship !! :-)
Sad to say Ethiopia is a hellish place to run. No other place are you met daily by stonethrowing kids and the esquisit harressing that is theresponse you get in Ethiopia. Counting the days to Kenya where I allready have contact w. runners who may come out and share the run :-) Cant wait to get there !!
But it will take 4 weeks of running in this contry yet. A deep breath and continue ;-)
NB: In Ethiopia gprs-service (global phone roaming service) is not yet avaliable for datatransmission. Therefore the Live-gps data cant be transmittet to the website as usual. It may first be avaliable in Kenya. Untill then traditional documentation is used: photo, logbook, video, wittness etc. !
