I met an amazing British couple the Disleys in Bahir Dar yesterday. Since 2003 they have taken a holiday each year in Ethiopia. They travel the country on ordinary buses and are far more expert than I on way out places and budget travel. Their pension at BD was costing them 190 birr. Last years holiday cost them 23 pounds a day as a couple, i.e. less than 400 birr a day each,.
