A short stage to have time to roll up to the border, buy supplies and research the situation.
After many days in tent we were looking for accomodation (and a shower !). But all was full in the tiny town on the Eti. side. The best we could get was two strawhuts, african style :-)
It was all merry' untill we discovered that we were indeed not the maininhabitants. The huts were 'ruled' by 5-7cm (!!!) black and red coackroaches. We got mosqitonets, however Tommy had the doubtable pleasure of beeing scratched on top of the head by one of our multilegged friends through the mesh !
- Enjoy your sleep...
