In Bahir Dah, on the huge Lake Tana.

Sorry for the no blog yesterday..... after I arrived in Bahir Dah yesterday
after a VERY pleasant 65km cycle, I decided to fit my pannier rack back onto
my bike, and cycle the 35 km to the Blue Nile Falls and sleep the night
under the stars at the had no room for the laptop!

Took the sat phone though...and got my valentine's day present by having a
wonderful 20 minute chat from the falls with Ruth, who is in Switzerland at
the moment!

Very special day yesterday and today...the area is 'just up my street'...but
more in the next newsletter from Addis Ababa....around the 21st Feb!

The dreaded / spectacular Blue Nile Gorge lies a few days ahead... I REALLY
can't wait!
