My two sisters, Mary and Betty, came to visit us in Soddo on April 24. They stayed three wonderful weeks with us in Soddo and also went with us to Bahir Dar and Lalibela. While in Soddo we hiked Demoto Mountain, visited the Areka water falls, worked on hospital stuff, went to church and basically ate too much good food. It was so much fun. Following are a few pictures of our time together.

The last day in Addis Abba we walked out of our hotel rooms wearing the same color of blue...all except Betty. We threw a jacket over her so she would match:)
