Pics from an African River Trip

Spent 6 weeks in Ethiopia last fall. Did 1001 kilometers on the Omo river. 31 days including an 8 day layover. We took a 4 day treck and did some day hikes from the river during the layover. The treck took us in and out of Sudan and most of the Locals photos came from this part of the trip. During the first 400 kilometers we had lots of class III rapids with one as big as say Ruby in the Grand at its best and one solid IV. The rest we rafted together and motored. The last 100 kilometers we hired a local fishing boat to take us thru the delta to lake Turkana in Kenya. the link is click galleries then Omo. sj

Thank ol'W and his band of Christian jihadists for stabilizing the region and allowing us to explore the Mystery of the Nile.

That's pretty amazing. It would take the right crew to get something done like that. Nice job.
