On my first trip to Ethiopia, we stayed at a little resort on Lake Langano. This resort was located at the very end of what seemed like a VERY long dirt road. In reality, the road was probably only 4 or 5 miles, but when you are traveling at 30-35 mph because of road conditions, it seems much longer. Anyway - the road dead-ends at this little resort. When you get out of the car and look ahead of you, you see nothing but the lake. When you turn and look behind you, you see nothing but rocky ridges that are big enough to almost call mountains. To either side are the most beautiful flowers and incredible trees. I'd like to be back there right now.
