You know what they say, “All work and no play makes Jon and Dawit dull boys.” In the six years that we’ve been working in Ethiopia we haven’t taken the time to get away and see the sights. Ethiopia has lots of interesting historical sites, as well as, large parks with all sorts of African wildlife. However, when we are in Ethiopia we just never seem to be able to get away. We have never even seen elephants or giraffes in the wild. So this year we decided to remedy that situation, but we had to leave Ethiopia to do it.
Just before Thanksgiving we traveled to Uganda to get away. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here, mainly just hanging out with our friends. Jonathan goes into the village most days and works with Colin. Jess usually stays back with Ronnie and the kids. We mostly just do day to day things, but without the pressure of having to get things done.
As great as this trip has been, this week we put icing on the cake! Our friends took us to one of Uganda’s game parks. Needless to say Dawit loved every minute. We wanted to share with you some of what we saw.
