Barren Road To Mekelle
Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Mek’elē, Tigray, Ethiopia
A coffee stop for some at Alamata and turning right along a new alterative road to skirt around the mountains.
The wind farm on the horizon signalled that we were close to our overnight's stay.
The orange sun ball dropped below the horizon as we drove into Mekelle and the end of another 11 hour on the road day.
Dinner was in the Axum Hotel itself with my lamb goulash plus Dashen beer coming to 195.28 birr / NZ$13 / US$9.60. English speaking room television for the first time on the trip.
