Stuck in the mud

We are still incredibly grateful for having had only one day of rain whilst cycling since we left the UK, however for the first time in months we had some rain overnight. This causes no problems for us until we hit several kms of dirt road which had turned into a mud river. With no other option we jumped off the bikes and dragged them along the road. An hour later and back on tarmac our bikes needed a full wash down to be able to cycle anywhere. Three kind men spotted we needed help, and helped us get to work with buckets of soapy water and sponges…this of course couldn’t be done without the usual Ethiopian audience.
