So it has been 17 days since I got here in Ethiopia, and 3 days here in Asosa, where I’ll be based for the next 11 months. I’ll write a proper blog soon. To say the least, I’m still adjusting to the pace and kind of life here.
I’m missing a lot of things that I don’t usually miss whenever I travel even if these are not available. I guess it’s the thought that I would not be able to get hold of them for a long time that’s making me miss these stuffs.
But they do have very friendly people and very wonderful coffee!
Asosa is a remote town in Ethiopia, near the Sudan border. The population includes 5 other tribes, as well as some Sudanese population. So far, it has been peaceful. :)
I hope I can be effective in the development work I’m supposed to help them with.
