A Small Ode to Iteya

17 Dec

As we leave our training sites to swear in as full volunteers, my site mate (and future neighbor up in Aykel, about 2 hours from Gondar) Morgan made a video from our time in training at Iteya. Enjoy!

It ends at 3:50 so don’t watch through all the extra black at the end.

Who were all those people? Those were the 9 trainees who lived in Iteya throughout training, our language and culture trainers, our host families and the cutest little nuggets (Mimilu and Misikir) who showed up at our language class every day and loved to copy our awkward dance moves. The last little bit was an inside joke- don’t worry about it, just know that you lost the game.
