    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-2152426-ethiopia22/
    2. 2. Hghway 3 from Bahir Dar to Gondar (117 Km) passes through the countryside and country towns of Amhara, through Hamusit and Woreta, past Addis Zemen and through the mountains to Gondar. Gondar is the 17th-century capital of Ethiopia. Bordering Sudan and located on the northern shore of Lake Tana, it is one of the prominent historical areas in Ethiopia. Gondar is a town founded in 1636 by the great Emperor Fassiladas, serving as the royal capital of Ethiopia for over 230 years. The Gondarine period is considered to be the third major dynasty after the Axumite and Zagwe dynasties.
    3. 3. Traditional houses are round dwellings with cylindrical walls made of wattle and daub. The roofs are conical and made of thatch, and the center pole has a sacred significance in most ethnic groups, including the Oromo, Gurage, Amhara, and Tigreans. Variations on this design occur. In the town of Lalibella the walls of many houses are made of stone and are two- storied, while in parts of Tigre, houses are traditionally rectangular. Village near Bahir Dar
    4. 4. Local Ethiopian homes are called Tukals
    5. 5. For more than two thousand years, Ethiopia’s ox-plow agricultural system was the most efficient and innovative in Africa, but has been afflicted in the recent past by a series of crises: famine, declining productivity, and losses in biodiversity.

    6. 6. Hailè Selassiè Church near Bahir Dar
    7. 7. Amhara woman
    8. 8. Plastic shoes—slip-ons or sandals– play a central role in the lives of herders who spend their days mucking through corrals, traipsing across pastures filled with sharp grasses and prickles, and wading into streams and ponds to water their cattle. The shoes are affordable, easy to wash, and airy as the temperature climbs under the burning sun. And when the old reliable break, herders melt them back together over a hot fire. These days, plastic jerry cans, baskets, and shoes are all made in Ethiopia, many of them manufactured in the capital. And when it comes to shoes, they provide never- ending service: People collect the cast-offs so they can be ground down and used to make whole new pairs.

    14. 14. The Bateleur (Terathopius ecaudatus) Creation Myth Wak was the creator god who lived in the clouds. He kept the vault of the heavens at a distance from the earth and covered it with stars. He was a benefactor and did not punish.
    15. 15. Double-toothed Barbet When the earth was flat Wak asked man to make his own coffin, and when man did this Wak shut him up in it and pushed it into the ground. For seven years he made fire rain down and the mountains were formed.
