Camp GLOW 2014-383

Five more months. Five. More. Approximately a mere 153 days left in Ethiopia, but who’s counting anyway? Not too much of an update this month–things have been pretty chaotic–but it’s good to look back at how the last month went.


Ryan and I had a lovely holiday with his family several weeks ago in London and Scotland. It was a much needed break from daily life here as well as a wonderful chance to spend time with and get to know his family better!


This past weekend Ryan and I helped out at the Bahir Dar Camp GLOW. Since I am working weekdays I wasn’t able to attend the full time, however it was a great weekend with the students from all over Amhara region. It was fun getting to play camp photographer for a few days!


My organization is expanding and it’s been fun working with a NGO that is growing so rapidly. I’ve learned a lot of feel like I’m finally doing something meaningful with my Peace Corps service!
