After our quick trip to the hospital we went up Entoto Mountain. Greg and I had already been on our court trip but I wanted Bekah to see it also. The view is wonderful (though it was cloudy the day we went up) and there was a wonderful museum as well with many artifacts.
blurb from a website
Entoto Mountain is a fifteen-minute drive from the center and 3019 meters high. Emperor Menelik II had chosen Entoto for the great of the court before the foundation of Addis Ababa. Here one can see traces of earlier settlement and two fine churches St. Mary, where Emperor Menelik crowned Emperor in it and St. Raguel built in 1880’s. The top of the range is a point for the panoramic view of Addis Ababa with its surrounding forests and its breath taking air.
At the top
This is the first Eucalyptus tree planted on Entoto Mountain. The mountain is now covered with them and smells wonderful!
Stopped by here to pick up some scarves on the way back down.
Making the scarves.
The very nice gentleman let Bekah try her hand at scarf making!
Back at the hotel to rest before dinner. I love his smile here.
Trying the tej (honey wine) Bekah was not impressed. Excuse the grainy photo.
