The green, green grass of Ethiopia

Some of my happiest times in Ethiopia have been when I took a break from cities and historic sights to just wander around aimlessly in the countryside, and one of my favourite walks was in the hills around the northern town of Axum. Right now the wet season is coming to an end so the Ethiopian countryside is gloriously, brilliantly green with fields of wheat and tef (an Ethiopian grain used to make their staple food, injera).
