Awasa Things to Do

    For me half the fun was getting here. It's about a 3-4 hour drive depending on traffic. Heading back to Addis at night can take a bit longer and after seeing all the traffic accidents on my way down there I was not all that interested in being on the road at night.
    So depending on how many cars/trucks you can pass while heading into traffic in the opposite lane you might shave some time off the trip....it was a great little road trip in the end.

    Boats can be rented cheap here and as with my hippo tip the more people you have the cheaper it is. Driver/skipper sits in the back and you can fit about 6 others on them.

    The Shoreline Trail runs about 3.4 km around the lake. You can either hike/walk or bike it.
    While I saw the eagle from a boat you could see it and others from the trail, it's a great way to see the lake and it's free.

    I thought for a minute that I ate at the Pinna Restaurant but did not write it down and am less certain now. Anyway there are plenty of places to eat on the main highway the ends at the lake.

    Favorite Dish: Good/Cheap. I had the Ethiopian version of Chorizo with injera and plenty of local chili powder or burburi (sp?) and a drink for a buck or two.
