All sorts of photos

A few photos from the last month of living and working in Kololo.  A huge thanks to Xavier for supplying the means and skill to produce these.  Plenty more to come.

Temesken and I slapping the cement on.

Some of the chicca (cob in amharic) crew 

Enjoying a mango on a Sunday.  And yes I know there is plenty of mango
on my face, there usually is.

Gazan and Sallamnesh waiting for the rain to pass.

My annoyed its raining face. I'm never too happy when were unable to work.  

Tamesken slamming the foundation into a nice even pile.

Ijigu and I talking through the day.  Our water filters dangle in the background.

The hyena's view of the house.  Kinda spooky.

Morning in Kololo.

Ijigu, Xavier and I always have a breakfast of school builders on the front porch.
The dogs take care of any scraps, and the flies take care of our patience.
The sunrise over the valley is worth it  Yes I have ninja slippers on, why not.

The everyday after work, and Sunday hangout.

Waterfall fauna.

Ijigu assisting with the cement mix.

Sallamnesh and I directing the pour.

evening board.  

Xavier's laundry audience.  He is popular with the kiddies.

Pride Rock.

My reaction after some local moonshine.  Imagine aburnt grain tasting strychnine. 

Xavier's reaction after the the local homebrew. Ooof.
