Now in Jinka, Southwest Ethiopia

Now in Jinka, a city in southwest Ethiopia, very near to the border with Sudan and Kenya. I am now using the only computer terminal in the only internet cafe here. It is VERY VERY slow and very expensive - US$14/hour.

Today is day 2 of my 7 days South Ethiopia tour. I will be inJinka tomorrow too but on to oither places with no internet after that. This is also Ethiopia's most primitive area, with over 40 Stone Age tribes living here. Today we passed by a few tribes who walk around half naked and with strange facial mutilations but with real rifles as well. Very exotic and strange place.

OK, bye for now. Maybe I will write again in 4 days time. Long queue here for use of the internet.
