In April 2014 I went to Ethiopia on a Habitat for Humanity build. We spent 10 days is Addis Ababa working on a sanitation project in one of the many slum areas. See Habitat photos. Following the Habitat build I did a tour of north-western Ethiopia with two other members of the team. We visited Lalibela, Gondar and Bahir Dar. Bahir Dar is on the southern end of Lake Tana and is a nice lakeside town with palm trees and a tropical climate. Lake Tana is the headwater of the Blue Nile and one of the local attractions is the Blue Nile Falls. The falls are much less spectacular than they once were because there is now a hydro-electric dam that reduces the water flow in the Nile. Also, we were there ahead of the rainy season so there was much less water in the lake and river.
