Sodo to Jimma

Posted: August 29, 2009 in Sodo-Jimma Rd

I travelled from Sodo to Jimma, following the “new road” described in the book. The town where I spent the night is called Tulcha in the box on page 448. Locals claim the correct name is Tarcha. I heard a lot of interesting stories about things that can be visited in the area – from a national park with elephants to a wall next to the Omo river that is the second largest in the world after the Great Wall. These stories were all told by local politicians, so I am not sure how much to believe. Unfortunately I did not have the time to further investigate this myself.
