Some pics from our day trip to Debre Zeyit. We traveled there on Monday the 2nd with Emily and our driver Ayele. It was beautiful. We had lunch overlooking a lake, saw some birds and really just enjoyed ourselves.
Yesterday, (day two) went better than the first. We had some major incidents of Afton Tamirat falling on Myer because he just doesn’t look where he’s going. I guess Myer’s pretty tough, it only phased him for a couple of minutes and I see no battle wounds. We played outside all afternoon since the weather was nice. The kids played “going to work” and drove their meukinas (cars) all around the deck. They got hooked on this role play because they asked where daddy was and I told him that he works. So they wanted to go to work. We also played with bubbles and chased Roper around. We only had one meltdown today: Mastewal cried and pouted when she stepped in wusha caca (dog poop). I tried to tell her it was funny and that we just wash it off (i love crocs) but she wasn’t happy until I brought out the samuna and wuha (soap and water) She cleaned her shoes and we exchanged Amharic and English words because I really want her to keep using her Amharic. She would crack me up though, when I would ask her something that she didn’t know, she would say….I don’t know…..call Kaleb (our guesthouse manager and friend). Hilarious.
