My first visit to Ethiopia was full of new experiences. In addition to visiting the University of Addis Ababa, African Union, Horn of Africa Regional Environmental Center, and United Nations Conference Center at the UN Economic Commission for Africa, I traveled to the Omo. The drive was amazing in the truest sense of the word. I’ve never seen such cultural diversity in my life. Didn’t see much wildlife, but I heard it at night—lions, elephants and leopards were super close to our camp because we were next to a water hole. Yeah, it was a busy week!
