Blue Nile

Monday, December 29, 2014
Bahir Dar, Amhara, Ethiopia
Had to be all ready to leave at 8 am which was no issue.

Waited at the lakeshore till our boat eventually arrived.
First stop was where the Blue Nile emptied from Lake Tana, Ethiopia's largest lake 3,673 km2.

6,650 km (4,130 miles) long, the Nile runs through the ten countries of Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt.

Hippos, African eagle and other bird life were seen. Papyrus reed boats having been sailing since the Egyptian pyramid age are still on the lake.
