By the Numbers

8000: Sheba miles required to book a round-trip flight from Addis Ababa to Bahar Dar

95: Cost of a pedicure at the Kiriftu Resort, in birr

7: Days away from Adaba for holiday

5: Friends from Pre-Service Training with whom I’m spending Christmas

3: Awesomely encouraging emails I’ve received from an MFA program in children’s literature that’s interested in working with me to develop English learning materials for Ethiopian children

2: Calzones (with real cheese) eaten in one week

1(st): Christmas away from home–great company here, but nothing compares to being in Kinards, SC.  I have so much to learn about where I find life, joy, and meaning.
