Out of Addis

We traveled West of Addis through some beautiful
country and went to Addis Alum. Euclyptus trees are
chopped down leaving a stump about a foot high that
immediately starts growing up again.

A very old church on top of a hill with elaborate paintings
and a bell tower. The museum nearby used to be the home
of the Emperor Menelik. It was supposed to have historical
items and crowns from the Queen of Sheba but it was closed.

Tasting chick peas straight from the field.

A pump installed and pumphouse built by
 LDS Charities to serve a farming community. 

If you click on this photo you can see
 people in this field cutting grain and
putting it into sheaves.

This man waved when he caught me
taking a picture of his donkey.
