We hiked to the river and boarded a boat. As I was telling The Littles, “Hey, this is the Nile River” I was struck with the sheer awesomeness that we were on a boat, on the NILE RIVER.
Our first glimpse of the Nile
And then we hiked (Little J was not feeling well and fell asleep in Jon’s pack).
When we heard the gushing of water, we were relieved as some days the falls are diverted to hydroelectric dams and so nothing comes over the falls. Coming around a bend, this site from afar greeted us.
This suspension bridge was built by the Swiss and expanses a DEEP ravine. At least one hundred feet down to the river. (We are on the close end in this pic)
We got off in a hurry because the donkey was nervous to cross when people were on the bridge.
Only seeing is believing this place.
They did not disappoint.
Misted by the Falls
The remainder of the time was spent trying to catch the mist
A morning well-spent.
Living in Ethiopia, vibrant with tradition and a rich history, we are blessed to partake.
