|going downhill in Sankaber|
We have once again made a long trip today. We got up early before sunrise and started going down the mountain at seven o'clock. We had to wake up our guide as usual. I think his presence has been completely unnecessary in the past four days. Downhill we met again the two groups of friendly geladas that we had met going up. Apart from them we have seen two small bushbucks crossing the road, three deers, and a huge lammergeier flying a few metres above our heads to take a close look at us.
This last morning was a very good effort from us; we covered thirteen kilometres with Adri at more than 3000 metres high in full gear in about two and a half hours.
