I don't have many opportunities to photograph the daily life of average Ethiopian people or families. It's always something I wish I could do more of. This would require walking in Addis and this city is simply the worst place for walking. Although it's the only mode of transportation for most Ethiopians. OK, so I could walk if I were more adventurous.
While we were in Gonder we took horse drawn carts through the villages to get from one historical site to another and during these rides I snapped a few photos of what we saw. Using a term coined by my wise 3 year old Addie during our time in Manila- "Everyone's just livin' and livin'". Indeed
