Why I am Traveling to Ethiopia This Week


Saturday will mark my fifth time going to Africa and, of course, I am ridiculously happy about it. I will be in Ethiopia for nearly a month planning a two-week itinerary for a global health fellowship program that starts in June. The last time I was in Ethiopia I visited Addis and Hawassa. This time I will be all over Ethiopia by car and by plane so the prospect of seeing much more of the country is bigger this time around.

Ethiopia is the second most populated country in Africa behind Nigeria. With over 93 million people, covering one million square miles, with over 80 ethnic groups there is a lot to see and people to meet. With such a short stay I will only just begin to scratch the surface of all there is to see and learn in Ethiopia.

I fly out on Saturday!

A few photos from my last visit to Ethiopia. You can see my full photo album on G+.



  1. These pictures are stunning Jennifer! I am so excited for you! What an adventure and great learning opportunity. I hope you will be taking tons of photos and sharing what you learn there. A month is a wonderful amount of time and it will be extraordinary. :)
