Pulling into our house after our time in meetings in south Ethiopia, we gasped that we had a new neighbor. 12 days before, what had been a field was now abuzz with people who were finishing up a house!
All it takes is two-three days to get the house framed and outside mud done.
Can you spy the blue, block house? That’s how close our houses are.
Making food for the workers
Our new neighbor, we haven’t gotten all the details yet, but it appears to be here and a young boy. She hasn’t moved in because the inner walls aren’t mudded yet.
It’s the first time we have seen a younger and co-ed crowd of builders.
And here is our new view. Our dry season view, I am loving the perfect weather, but part of me can’t wait for the rains to bring back the green! We are excited to get to know a new person. Talking to a countryside friend, he mentioned, “Yeah, you can tell she is a city person, look, she put in a back doors. People from here wouldn’t put in two doors.”
