I love guests! We are fortunate to have had three – count ‘em, three! – adventurous visitors this winter. Our daughter Alice was here for about ten days in December before we all flew off to meet the rest of the family in Berlin. Alice went home to Oregon after the new year, but our son Nik traveled back to Addis with us for an open-ended visit (he’s still here). On the 7th of January we were joined by Sukey of Arizona, an old friend of mine from UCLA grad school on a two-week trip to Ethiopia.
A great thing about having visitors is that you make time to do the sight-seeing that you don’t normally do. We went out to the “cultural” restaurants where the Ethiopian dancers perform, we went to the museums, and we drove all around the town. Andreas took Alice to Wenchi Crater, and with Nik and Sukey we visited Debre Zeit, Entoto, and Portuguese Bridge.
I’ve posted about the out-of-town trips already but here are a few more pictures from our sight-seeing excursions. Maybe you want to come visit, too!
