Success Number 1
Things are getting back to normal around here and I finally feel like I can take a deep breath and reflect on our trip. It was amazing. I can't wait to start editing the footage and share with you through pictures what I seem to lack in words to describe. This was BEMM's first official trip to Ethiopia on our own. AND IT WAS A SUCCESS on so many levels. I thought it would be fun to each day share with you all the different successes of our trip. It will also help me sort out all the things that were accomplished.
Our team was incredible....Jodie, Amy, Gedese and Crystal were rockstars. Each woman completely different...yet, all of them strong, wise, courageous, loving, beautiful and completely essential to the trip. Our staff/guides were awesome. Alebachew, Eyob, Dawit and Eyuel couldn't have done a better job. I think just having so many different people who start out as mainly strangers spend every moment of the day together for 2 weeks AND not only get along but end up loving eachother is HUGE! We truly became a family by the end of our trip. Yes, tears were shed. It's so strange not being with them everyday. That my friends is success #1!
