As you travel out of Addis to the North you pass eucalyptus forests - it is grown here for firewood as it is fast growing. There are donkeys and women carrying leaves and firewood for miles up the mountain.
I liked this photo as the donkeys almost look like bushes! There were so many donkeys that our boys lost count.
There is plenty of countryside, not too far out of our side of Addis.
We traveled past lots of these little thatched huts and beautiful scenery. It is incredibly different here to the African countries we have lived in before. It feels a lot safer and a lot greener.
