When I was in the Simien Mountains last April I met a young fellow on a big off-road motorbike. Being an avid motorcyclist myself, I began chatting with him. He was on a dream journey: Cape Town to Holland via motorbike, on the summer before his start at University.
I thought about him as I began reading the BBC special series "Long Way Down" about two fellows who traveled from Scotland to Cape Town, also on motorbikes. Reading their Ethiopian entries is a unique look at Ethio-tourism from a two-wheeled perspective. You can read the Ethiopian entries and see pictures, starting here. (Those of you not in Ethiopia will have enough bandwidth to watch the included videos as well.)
