We left bright and early Friday morning to head South. We stopped for lunch at a hotel with a grassy area, and the kidlettes were in heaven.
Along the way, there was much excitement as we identified real-life scenes with the photos in E is for Ethiopia. An example: Aheyas (donkeys) carting wares. You should have heard the shrieking. They were also extremely excited (the kidlettes, not the donkeys) to spy many traditional houses. Fun!
What's not so fun? Keeping your children safe when there are no carseats, no seatbelts, and lots of interesting things out the window.
We arrived in Hosanna in late afternoon, and spent the remainder of the day visiting some old haunts of Dinkeneh's. Here he is checking out the care center where he lived for a bit. There is a photo of it in his lifebook, and he was so. pumped.
We ate dinner and hit the sack.
