This Day in Addis

Friday, 22 June 2012

Today we woke up to nightmares. It’s Dave’s 35th birthday. We pray and celebrate. I went to school for 4 hours to learn Amharic. On the way home, we give water and bread to a precious mother and her 2 children begging on the side of the road.  Her little boy has no pants and flies are swarming. We get in a van crammed with 20 others… I wash Evie’s sheets by hand in the bathtub. I spend 2 hours cleaning vegetables! I share and laugh with my new Ethiopian friend as we cook and clean in the kitchen. Dave and I go out for Italian food… Life is rich.
