In fact, she'd never even been camping. She'd never had to use the bathroom outdoors. So I love that this girl picks ETHIOPIA to cut her travel/adventure teeth.
But it did not come without mishap.
While we were on safari, Sara had such a hard time dealing with the idea of peeing outdoors, that she had to use a portable toilet seat that she brought with her from the U.S.
I didn't even know they made such things. But here's Sara, in the middle of Awash National Park, among lions and tigers and monkeys -- sitting on a toilet seat propped up by two metal legs attached.
I cheered for her when she finally had success.
We'll get back to her shortly.
They pooped on one of us.
Guess which unsuspecting American was the lucky one?
Sara. The Virgin Traveller. Of course she was their target.
So that added to the safari fun. We also took a day and saw some of the tribes that live far outside the city. Many of the people in these tribes had never seen a white person before so you can imagine what a scene it was for all of us to meet. And who was their favorite white person?
I didn't mentioned that Sara is nearly translucent. She has pale blonde hair, blue eyes, and skin color akin to a snowman.
These people were facinated by Sara. I look around and she is being swarmed, with people staring at her and touching her in awe.
Ha! This girl is never going on a trip again.
The last adventure I'll mention did not, however, so much directly affect Sara as it did - our pastor.
To give you a hint, his blog post title from that day was this:
Ethiopia: Held at Gunpoint
I've posted several more pics below. Enjoy!
