Thorns prick lightly the man who walks slowly

March 19, 2010

Ethiopia’s rich history and diverse cultures have made it a source of many amazing proverbs:

  • “One who tries to hide with a dog, a child, a goat, or a person with a cold, will not remain hidden.”
  • “Only a fool looks for dung where the cattle don’t graze.”
  • “When there are many women, the cabbage will be spoiled.”  (Still trying to figure out what this one really means…)

My February trip to Ethiopia was bookended by an intense workshop in Mexico City and a mad dash to Oregon to visit my Dad in the hospital as he recovered from emergency brain surgery (thankfully he is doing much better!). So, I make no apologies for posting these pictures from my trip to Ethiopia almost a month after I got home…I guess this is just a circuitous way of saying, “thorns prick lightly the (wo)man who walks slowly!”

My album of photos from Ethiopia is here.
