During our second day on the road we stopped for gas in a town named Ziway where I first noticed how popular fooseball is in Ethiopia. Kids and young men played on dusty tables on street corners and hung around waiting for a free table.
In the afternoon we veered off the main road to visit a market village named Dorze where locals build very distinctive, beehive-shaped houses. Wandering the market proved great people-watching with interesting goods like cotton, potatoes and imported items like blankets and umbrellas.
