It's ! Guess what that means? I have exactly one month left in Ethiopia! While I'm uber excited to go home, my biggest fear is leaving feeling like I didn't make the most of this opportunity. I do have some plans in the works though, including a weekend trip and a safari in Kenya!! : )
I've been uninspired to blog since I returned because I haven't done anything interesting. Thanks to Jimmy for reminding me today that I'm in Africa, which is interesting by default. And now that I have a new iphone, I can inconspicuously take photos of things I haven't shown you!
I left off in Adama, where I spent 4 days for a work training. The drive into the city was all I saw of it since we didn't leave the hotel.
But the entire trip was made by spotting baboons on the side of the road (!!):
The purpose of the training was to teach master trainers how to train community change agents to facilitate community conversations on maternal and young child nutrition. I was impressed at how focused and committed the master trainers were, and it was nice to finally see the project in action!
