Travel Haiku - Landlocked Ethiopia - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

landlocked Ethiopia
the mountains, caves, rivers and canyons
bursting with our excitements

landlocked Ethiopia
bursting my mind with
great wonders

as we travel down Omo River
the bursting of excitements
over great Ethiopia's offerings


The landlocked country of Ethiopia lays claim to more than 74 million people within just over 695,000 square miles—and some of the globe's most unexplored cultural and natural gems. Start with the rugged Simien Mountains, and then head to the Omo River Canyon for some whitewater rafting and a safari through the Rift Valley. After that, explore ancient palaces, the walled city of Harar, and the intricately designed Church of Markos whose elaborately painted walls depict moments of biblical or historical significance.
