The kids LOVED and LOVED again all of the animals on the roads everywhere we went. There were lots of donkeys, goats, and some cows. The dogs are mostly wild dogs that roam the streets. Luckily we never did encounter an unhappy one. It is amazing how the markets continue due to the donkeys bringing in the goods, yet a Mercedes will be stopping to let them cross the road. It was a clash of two worlds. Anna said it best when trying to describe Ethiopia she explained how the old never leaves, but they keep bringing in more modern... then in America we forget the old and only let in the new. She liked having both times represented. I can still hear the sounds of this picture.... very loud, yet somehow peaceful.
