Ethiopia II: Means of Transportation by Freeport Ethiopia II: Means of Transportation by Freeport
ETHIPIOA II: MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The number one mean of transportation in Ethiopia is the mule. They are literally everywhere. Especcially the rural inhabitants use them to carry water, agricultural products, and all kinds of other things.

This one I caught smack in the middle of Addis Abeba, a city of 10 million people, where he trotted down the street, ignoring the stream of honking cars passing him by. Some days later, we even spotted a mule sleeping in the middle of a busy road.

You gotta love those creatures. ;)

Hey,

Mule or donkey? ;-)
Love how the colours of the shot turned out, though. Looking at it, it makes an impression as comming directly from the 70ies ... Looking forward to see more!

Greetings
Miou B-)

That is a good question - I think there were mules and donkeys, but they were called mules by the people - given their English was not always perfect, they might have been wrong on that. I met some zebroids there, too (half donkey, half zebra).
