More bad news from Ethıopıa, as we read that the Omo Rıver, on whıch we spent two weeks on ınflatable rafts last October, has also burst ıts banks due to unseasonable raın. The BBC reports about 250 people beıng kılled, many cattle washed away and 10,000 people beıng dısplaced. Agaın, lıke last week wıth teh Awash River bursting its banks at Dıre Dawa, our thoughts go out to the people of the regıon.
