This is a retrospective of my first day in Ethiopia…
Girls came running at our Tuk-tuk (motorcycle type taxi) “Sir! Sir!” They did not shout though rather whispered loudly. “Give me pen, sir, buy my cross”. They sold cheap crosses to get money for school supplies. I was instantly charmed to death bu this whispering so endearing.
We stepped out of the tuk-tuk and were surrounded by girls asking for pens. I took out my camera to capture some of their beautiful faces. The response was unlike any I had experienced before. None of them had seen their photo before. They screamed with glee when I turned the viewer to them.
Life is precious.
And this is what it looks like when you are under it.
