Yesterday I had some thoughts on having coffee on the road. This morning, here's a little snippet of my philosophy in action.
Aylwyn and I were heading out for our fourth straight day of meeting with committee members from coffee cooperatives in Harar, Ethiopia. I like to flatter myself that it's important work. But after a while, the goof factor takes over. So here's a little unedited glimpse into what I actually worry about when I make trips like this.
Notice the cool little blue-and-white three-wheel Bajaj taxis on the road. Also, incidentally, I mentioned before on this blog that my friend got sick. After watching this video a couple times, I realized that it was that very afternoon that Aylwyn went down for the count (not to arise again for at least four days). I'm thinking it was that egg "sandwich," because I never had a bite and I was fine.
I'll try to resume with some actually useful posts for y'all later in the day.
