A little work trip to Ethiopia

With my job, I’m lucky enough to visit places I may otherwise never get to visit. Last week I participated in a three day workshop in Addis.

An initial glance at the agenda showed a busy schedule with little time to explore outside of the hotel, also the workshop location.

We were treated by the hosts to see some traditional dancing over dinner.

However, with limited flight availability, there was most of a day available at the end. Others on the same flight organised a great trip outside the city. And it was amazing. Sunny, warm, open green expanses, horse & carts, drive through religion (our car was blessed in holy water), kids selling woven baskets, and the birds. A canyon visit was full of raptors.

It is such a beautiful country. Hopefully I get to go back.
