Reaching Tekeze river (WP #22)

Tekeze river at WP #22:

For once we had a nice source of clear water close to our camp.

Fording Tekeze river in the early morning:

Nile crocodiles inhabit the river. Local herders helped us to cross safely.

Water supply from Tekeze river:

Villages several hundred meters above Tekeze river have no water during the dry season. Every morning a group of donkeys and people go down to a small source near Tekeze river, filled the jerrycans, and return to their villages. They bring about 40 liters per family.

Thorny trees:

Long thorns are the best defense against goats.

Rest stop under one of these trees:

A meager shadow is better than none.
