I’ve put together a slideshow of images shot on the journey from Addis Ababa to Dolo. We were pretty pressed for time so most of these are shot out of the window of a moving 4WD (not my favourite mode of working). Some are a little soft from the inevitable camera shake you get when driving on unsealed roads but I hope they give you an idea of the topography covered: the surprisingly verdant Ethiopian highlands, the treacherous muddy road between Aleto Wendo and Wadera, the changing flora as you drop down to Negele and the parchment dry desert of Dolo that hasn’t seen a drop of rain for 3 years.
The journey is just over 1,000kms. It took us 20hrs with a great driver (thank you Abrahim), for some of our trucks it took 4 days.
