Portuguese Bridge Outing





The family packed up the car and headed out the Saturday after Christmas. We drove about 2 hours outside of Addis Ababa in the country. The road was nice and the view was beautiful. It was farmland, cattle grazing and rolling hills with a few green, alfalfa patches. It reminded us of Idaho in the summer. We visited a tourist spot called Portuguese Bridge. The Bridge was built in the 16the century out of limestone and ostrich eggs. No Joke!! The kids and Mitch hiked down to the bridge and saw the cave where the baboons sleep at night. They didn't see any and that was okay. Marti and Sophi stayed up on the hill, so when you look at the pictures I am way at the top with some guides. It was our first time out of the city and it was a pleasant trip. Enjoy the pictures!

What an awesome experience you are giving your children. They will have some great adventures to tell about when they are older. You look pretty dang fabulous after just having had a baby. Cute family too.
Thanks for the Christmas card. It was fun to catch up a little on your life. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hey we were wondering what the Portuguese were doing in Africa, and why did they build a bridge?
