Out of Africa March 20, 2007

trackback

I’m back from the trip, and am almost coherent again. I spent about 8 days in Djibouti, and the rest of my time in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia. All in all, it was a wonderfully productive trip. I enjoyed lots of time elbow-to-elbow with my childhood best friend, and he and I accomplished a lot while we were there.

I took lots of pictures, but for now, here are a couple that I snagged with my camera phone:

FordGT1

(OK, that wasn’t taken in Africa. That’s the business end of a Ford GT sitting in the Dubai airport.)

ghourbet_panorama

That’s a panorama of three images I took of the Ghourbet, which is part of the Gulf of Arden. To see exactly where I was when I took that pic, the Google Map location is here.

ghourbet island

The last picture is of the small island that you can see in the Google map. I took this pic, standing in a few inches of water, roughly at the center of the map, looking East.

Thank you for all the good wishes. I’m compiling more pictures, and will try to post them soon (along with a few stories of my stupidity). – Tim
