Ethiopia uses different calendar that the middle of September is a new year for them. Even they call 3 pm night 12 am. Strange country, Ethiopia.

Ethiopian food, Tegamino

I am too tired to cycle after taking the worst bust last night that I go to a cheap hotel. After sleeping and doing laundry by hand, I have dinner. This is a typical Ethiopian food.

I think because of injera, the white thing, I have loose bowels. Ethiopia is known as hell to cyclists. It is safe country, but the thing is people bother cyclists so much ever.

The first day in Ethiopia is okay. Of course many people are begging and bothering; but it is not much. I set up my tent early. A local people invites me for dinner. It is my first food which I can’t eat. It is too sour ever. But I eat all of them, because I don’t want to be rude.

The driver drops me at the big city. The man on the picture says to me that he can fix my bike. But After two hours, he still struggles. I find another guy, and he puts a new derailleur. But it is not working well. I hope I can use it at least until Addis. Then I am gonna change all of them.

One is for 3 Birr (0.15$). I couldn’t buy bread that I just bought lots of snack. I stay in the cheapest hotel. It is too noise with local music in the night. Anyway Ethiopia is very interesting country for me.
