As our IST (In-Service Training) approaches, I’m blown away by the fact that I’ve been living on my own in Hawassa for three months now. And that I’ve been in Ethiopia for five months. Cliched as it sounds, the time really has flown by! So I started looking through my pictures and reminiscing about where I’ve gone and what I’ve seen.
This was my view of Addis Ababa from the hotel room I shared with Jazmin our first few days in Kings Hotel.
Donkeys quickly became my favourite animal in Ethiopia. I took a picture of this guy in Hosanna on our “demystification” trip.
Joel, leading our adoring fans in a chant on one of our afternoon walks in Sagure.
Me and Kerry, standing above William’s (Sagure’s) Gorge.
The lovely tree where many a Hawassan drunk has apparently slept. Not gonna lie, I went inside…and minus the insects, it looked quite cozy.
The large statue that has become my favourite landmark in Hawassa (other than the lake!).
The local Orthodox church.
I love this view from the Haile!
Back in Sagure for a few weeks. This was just a normal day for Morgan.
How many volunteers can you fit in a taxi van at once? At least 21! (The after-party following our swearing-in ceremony!)
The first day of school back in Hawassa! Teachers welcomed students at Adare Primary School.
Just a day at the lake.
