Jacinta had to go to the Embassy for a Fulbright Orientation so we made a family vacation of it. Here we are on the road from the park to Gonder (in  a short clip you get scenery, a giant hole where the brand new road completely collapsed, and sleeping kids):

We took a detour to Bahir Dar, a sleepy little town on the shores of Lake Tana, source of the Nile (well the Blue Nile, which is most of the water in the Nile). Here is the view of the lake from the balcony of our room:

Lake Tana!

Source of the Nile? Meh. Ice cream!

We then flew on to Addis:
