A fairly light run but yesterdays canyon run was fealt in the legs.. ;-)
As sort of an Ethiopian wonder' we found an exquisit hotel a bit further up the road after the finish in Gebre Guracha - we had to try to find gasoline for the supportcar.
- 15usd. for a room w. marble floor, tv, big bathtub, modern furniture; all clean and new. And a restaurant w. an impressive meny and a great alert kitchen even for just two guests ! Too good to be true ?
Well; ofcourse there were no electricity ! But no complaints; its Ethiopia afterall ;-)
