|At Yod Abyssinia|
The custom in Ethiopia is to wash your hands before you eat
from the same tray. They bring a pitcher and bowl to your table.

Our favorite souvenir shops across from the Post Office
in Addis Ababa
Three cute girls we bought things from
(The girl in the middle told me I looked like an American
singer.... Celine Dion!! Hahahahaha!)
Our last lunch together at ISLAND BREEZE in Addis with
our guide, President Iklilu, the new branch president of
the Beklobet Branch. We were excited to find two elders
that once served with us in Debre Zeyit, having lunch inside ~
Elder Voracek and Elder Makuku!
The Ethiopian Orthodox Church's Holy Trinity Cathedral
Inside the cathedral
The stained glass windows were BEAUTIFUL!
The coffin of Haile Selassie,

Addis Ababa from Entoto Mountain
We saw several women carrying these HUGE loads of sticks
down the mountain road.
We had Ethiopia's famous "mix-eds" ~ different combinations of
juice from fresh fruits at The Lime Tree restaurant in Addis
where we stopped for a sandwich before heading to the airport.
What a surprise! The mission has been talking about buying cars
for the Preators and for us for months! Here is our new car ~ a Chinese
Lifan Sedan! Habtu got the license plates just before we were headed
home on Saturday morning so we were able to drive it home!
(The Tanners in Awassa and the humanitarian couple, Elder and
Sister Moses both have hardbody trucks. We traded our Toyota
Corolla rental car with the Tanners and drove their truck the week the kids
were with us.)
