Blue Nile Falls

These kids followed us all the way to the falls, mostly trying to sell trinkets. Everywhere we went in Ethiopia, kids (and sometimes adults) followed our every move. In most cases, they'd simply shout "You! You! You!" although others call out "money!" or "pen!" Another surprising treat was having groups of kids throw rocks at us -- not to be malicious, but rather to find out how we'd react!
