The best way to describe Hawassa is to show you pictures of Hawassa. Otherwise you’ll never believe what I’m saying. Because come mid-August, I’m going to be living in paradise.
Everything was so green on the drive south from Addis.
This is a picture of my school – part of it – this building houses grades 5-8 as well as the English club. It was built 2 years ago and is incredible!
My first night in Hawassa my counterpart Eltzabet took me to the Lewi resort. This was the view! Minnesota lake + Colorado mountains = a little slice of heaven.
A few days later, Holly’s counterpart Tesfahun (in photo) took me to the Haile resort.
This was the view from Haile. Breathtaking, right?
And this one isn’t too shabby either : )
My last day in Hawassa I was joined by a number of other Southern Nation Ladies. Here’s me and Ohnsoon enjoying our Time Juice – a life-changing beverage!
We also went to a monkey park! Monkeys here are like squirrels in Minnesota.
Wayne, Ohnsoon, Julia, and Emily, enjoying the lakeside view at the monkey park.
I seriously can’t believe this is going to be my home for the next two years. If you weren’t planning on coming and visiting me, you should : )
I would come to visit you and stay for the monkey parks!
Your King is on his way, clean up the park! Beautiful pictures!
You look like you are having so much fun! What a beautiful place. 🙂 You won’t like it in MN anymore when you come back, at least that’s what I think.
Sounds like a solid plan, Nicole : ) And Desiree, I’ll LOVE Minnesota: it has hot showers ha ha
Nice Pic. I am a guest to Hawassa and I am going to stay for three years. I Hope I will…
