Fruechtings on the road to Durame

In no particular order (because I can’t get it to put it right when uploading and the internet is too slow to try multiple times to fix it) . . .

In the dining hall at the school. We’ll be eating at least 2 meals a day with the students rather than Rebecca cooking all the time. We’ll practice Amharic and they can practice English.

This is about 1/3 of the way up. A few houses with animals and gardens pepper the path.

The mountain villagers were delighted to have some visitors!

About half our entourage followed us to back to the bridge.

The next pics are my view from the back of the LandCruiser. I found the landscapes beautiful.

It’s plowing time in Ethiopia. In some areas, a 1/2 dozen teams of oxen and men would be in one field together–quite a sight to see.

Mountains. Yes the sky was that blue.

    Praise God from whom ALL blessing flow… even though they are sometimes disguised as inconveniences. Your pics bring back many memories. We continual pray for you & keep you before the congregation. You truly appear joyful in well-doing. “Yankee is such a fortunate & well-loved pup”. Jerry Humes
