Back from Ethiopia!
Hello dear backers!
We have made it home and are just starting to feel as though we've landed. Our travels to Ethiopia were so incredible. The culture and the people were uplifting and inspiring. So much happened in such a short amount of time. When it came time to leave, it seemed as if we had just arrived. We made dear friends and learned so much.
The people there are so vibrant and though it may appear they have very little, it seems their lives are unbelievably full. Their eyes are shining and their smiles are portals to another dimension! We have so much to learn from their graciousness and their humble hearts.
Education is such an important part of Ethiopian culture! We found ourselves surrounded by incredible minds. The students in the schools are brilliant and it was such an honor to work with them. They welcomed us like kings and queens and taught us so much in our short visits there. The schools that we are raising money to build will help so many. These communities are full of intelligent hard working people and their beautiful children. I am so excited for these students and teachers to have more classrooms to learn in. The communities were excited too. They greeted us with a celebration that may never be topped in our lifetime.
We got to meet and see incredible musicians in Addis. We were lucky enough to jam and sit in with some of them too. We are full of new sounds and inspirations, now we just have to put it all into song. We're really excited to begin this part of the process and have been home writing and recording demos for our band all week. We'll begin recording the album on February 7th!!! So soon!!!
Thank you again for supporting this project. We have already been inspired beyond our own expectations and we could not have done it without your help. What a great gift.
