One neat aspect of our new hotel is the pool! In the Ethiopian culture, it is not acceptable for men or women to show their knees so we have been wearing long pants or skirts every day. The idea of putting on shorts and swimsuits is a welcome relief to the blazing heat we are experiencing. Saturday evening, some of us swam while others lounged by the pool listening to, get this, country music! It is a wonderful blessing to be surrounded by such fun loving people on this trip! Thank you, God!
Life is too short and the planet is too big to stay in one place too long!
