No internet...

So 1 week of being back in Ethiopia has passed, and I've really enjoyed it all so far. I've realised how much of the culture here that I've missed, with crazy sights and sounds slipping into daily normality. Walking on the road always having to watch out for massive holes in the pavement, keeping an eye on the random guys with AK47 guns slung over their shoulders, washing only one hand to eat, ignoring the continuous "you you you, money money money" calls, it all seems so normal again.

So! It's been nearly 6 years since I initially set off for Ethiopia, way back in 2007, about 3 since I've been there, back in 2010. Now I'm leaving on Saturday to return for 5 weeks. As a certain former house mate of mine would say: "Yee Hawww!" I'm heading back on my cross cultural bible college placement. Some have suggested that this won't be much of a cross cultural experience for me, but however. I'm going out again with SIM, on a "Vision trip". I have just finished my 2nd year of Bible ...
