Travel Diary: Ethiopia by Majnouna Travel Diary: Ethiopia by Majnouna
I'm back and I haven't had a night's or even half-night's sleep in several days... Knackered! For the moment let me leave you with just a few choice pages from my travel diary, and I'll post a long journal when I manage to get some rest – damn malaria pills give me insomnia!

I love your travel diaries. The way you draw and explain cultures is very good and the layout is in a nice sequence (does that make sense? lol). :rose:

very interesting and rich. What's with the first cross to the right (that has Raphael and Gabriel written on its sides)? Any chance you can send me a scan of it?

It's the Gonder type of cross. What do you want a scan for?

For a possible tattoo.
Also I like to trace stuff like that and keep it in my resources folder, that if you don't mind.

I love seeing journals like this (I need to go somewhere so I can make my own! =P)
Those patterned crosses up the top are gorgeous. And I must agree about the cuteness of the donkeys, too! =D

You really should, with your sketch quality :D
Hee, the donkeys were irresistible, I was always wanting to pet them, but of course they were quite aloof, lol.

We used to play 'elastico' over here too. Marina tells me the Chinese immigrant children are bringing it back into fashion.

That is awesome. It's a wonderful game, I was so sad to think it was probably lost in the face of game boys and such.

Did you get to see the Awash?

No, I never made it to a national park :( I wanted to, but it was so damn expensive to get to any place that's not accessible by public transport (meaning most of the country).

Aw, pity. I'd have loved to hear about that area.

Curse you, public transportation! :shakefist:

I did go to Harar nearby, but I take it you're interested in the fauna :D There was this hysterical hyena outside my window...

The fauna alive and dead (I need not expound on what fossils were found over there).

:lol: Sounds like a laugh!

Mississippi. Twas fun right up until you hit the shoulders. Then it's like "omg do I really have to?".

Majnouna Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2009  Professional General Artist
It's called Mississipi where you are? That's interesting... It triggered a very vague memory long forgotten. That word WAS involved with a variant of the game, I think... whoa.
