End of Trip Vacation

Okay, last post from my parents’ visit. There’s too many great pictures to stop now. We went to Bahir Dar to spend a few uninterrupted days of quality time.

Airports, those in between Addis and Bahir Dar.

Maybe the girls’ most fun day of school to date.

Blue Nile Falls, it’s small right now because it’s dry season but still impressive.

Standing as close as we can in order to cool down.

Dad experiences his first bajaj ride. He kind of wants one for the farm.

Jon’s camera on his phone doesn’t work well, but his back camera does, so he is mastering selfie shots.

Early morning boat trip into the bright sunshine, looking for hippos and visiting a monastery on an island. The original structure is over 900 years old.

Can you see the hippos here? I think I count nine though they blend in with the rocks. (you can see their spines)

A fisherman in Lake Tana shows us his catch and also how he has fish ready and scaled in the boat.

We are so glad Bahir Dar is only a few hours from our house, one of our favorite spots in Ethiopia.

The picture of you and the girls by the falls trying to cool off looks like if you took one step back you'd be a part of the falls.
