I set off at sunrise. The road becomes even worse and I ride with 18 kmh. I reach the border at noon and have a long bureaucratic process ahead off me. After almost three hours I am across and immediately in a different world. There are people everywhere and the kids are shooting after me. Everyone is friendly but after 20 km a group of children throw their Flip Flops at me and is definately hostile. I have been warnend that every cyclist I know hated Ethiopia due to rock throwing children and youngsters who try to pull you off the bike. We will see the next days. After only 120 km I stop at a hotel. I still have an hour of sunlight but I am know entering an area that currently has violent conflicts. Better not to risk getting into the dark and instead start early.
