So we took Mikayla's Stanley around Debre Zeyit Monday afternoon and got some pictures of him to send to her 2nd grade class. We got the photos printed and mailed on Tuesday morning. They said at our Post Office that he would get to Oklahoma "within a week"!? We'll see! Here is Flat Stanley in Debre Zeyit....
|Flat Stanley really liked the colorful flag of Ethiopia!|
If you look closely, you'll see he is wearing a
pin we bought him with the Ethiopian flag on it!
|Flat Stanley arrived while I was teaching a keyboard lesson so|
he sat and listened....
|Flat Stanley LOVED our Debre Zeyit Branch Chapel !|
|He jumped up on top of the chalkboard in the PrimaryRoom|
to see our Branch Primary kids up close.
|He wanted to ride in a bajaj (a little "taxi" with|
three wheels, that are ALL over Debre Zeyit),
but he settled on just meeting a driver and getting
a look inside of one.
|We had to buy a loaf of yummy fresh bread at the bakery in|
|...and also bottled water, so he went with us.|
He liked the cute girl who checked us out.
She is one of our friends at Grace.
|We also stopped to get some veggies and fruit. |
He like playing in the bins.
|We saw a kid with an Ethiopian soccer jersey on|
so he had his picture taken with him.
|Then we saw a bunch of school kids in their school uniforms,|
walking home from school, and he got a picture with them too!
|We went to the bank and showed Stanley all the different|
Ethiopian bills and coins. (19 birr equals $1.00) Here is about
167.90 birr which is only about $8.83.
