While the herd of Ibex slowly passed us about 100 feet away our Scout kept getting more and more excited. He counted them several times (24 or 25 in the herd) wrote out a statement of how many there were in Amharic on a piece of scratch paper and had our driver confirm it. Then he asked me and Steve to sign it. I think he got credit back at the office in Debark for finding so many.

They were interested in us, but not terribly bothered. We walked to within 100 feet (about 30 meters) taking many pictures while they meandered along munching grass and leaves.
I was keeping well behind the lip of the hill while this was going on. (Although I did want a good picture.) The poachers hid before our Scout let go with any bullets from his AK-47.

This is a wonderful photo of a wooden wheel used to keep animals out of someone's yard. You've got the location in Anagundi. Is it a picture in Anagundi? It definately could be. If so, it would be great to change the title and help promote the village of Anagundi a little bit.
This may be the best hotel room for the money in all of Ethiopia, just like the guidebooks say.
Actually it was the New Vaudeville Band what wrote the song. Scenes for the film Davinci Code were filmed here though.
Why was this photo not selected for Google Earth?
This is a famous photographer from NYC generously helping out with the surveying.
