Ethiopia Travel Journal - Part 3 - Yirgalem to Addis

July 24, 2010
After my amazing time in Yirgalem, I was a little sad to leave. However, everyday brought me closer to the day that I would meet Des and Bri. We had a long day of driving ahead of us, from Yiralem to Addis. I tried to capture a few photos from the window of our car as we left the Sidama area.

To break up the long drive, we stopped at Lake Langano for lunch. The lake is a brownish-pink color which was a pretty contrast with the green trees and blueish horizon.
Though it was a long day, it was rather uneventful. Once we finally made it to Addis Ababa, we checked in at our guesthouse and reorganized our stuff for our overnight trip to Lalibela the next day.


  1. We were told that the road from Awassa to Yirgalem is the most dangerous road in Ethiopia-did your driver tell you that?! Minutes after he told us that (and we were on our way to Yirgalem) we saw a horrific accident...
    That's not stopping me from going back though.

    It is so beautiful. Great pictures!

  2. I love seeing your journey. I love the pictures.

    Hugs & love,

  3. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You ~Ron

  4. Thanks for sharing your trip with us! I look forward to hearing about Lalibela and the rest of your trip. :)

  5. Other than being one of the oldest civilizations of the world, Ethiopia is currently acknowledged to be the origin of mankind.The remaining parts of "Lucy" or Dinknesh, the oldest hominid,were found in Ethiopia's a piece of the Great Rift Valley.Dinknesh,after which our organization took its name,truly signifies 'you are wonderful'.This makes Ethiopia an archeological attraction, and going by Ethiopia is similar to returning to this ancient place that is known for our regular yet,exceptionally distant ancestors.~Regina Harper.


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
