I travel a lot as a bicycle tour guide for Tour d'Afrique. Sometimes I write about it.

They Throw Rocks at You in Ethiopia
That's what I've been told by several people. Kids, young ones, teenagers, all of em. They throw rocks at you as you pass. No one knows why. Know one knows how to stop them. I'm thinking of mounting a candy shotgun to my bars. Or maybe some kind of candy sling shot. Maybe it will distract them, or hurt them. Either works for me. I can't be held responsible for my actions if a 75 lb Ethiopian kid hits me with a rock. Can you carry a skittle gun onto an airplane?
