Happy Easter everyone! In order to celebrate this Easter holiday, my friends and fellow Ethiopia Peace Corps Volunteers Mary Gaul and Breanne Lott made some awesome ‘peep show’ dioramas for the Washington Post’s Peep contest. The results are amazing and are a great way to show a bit about what life is like here in Ethiopia as a Peeps Corps Volunteer. I hope you enjoy the awesome work of Mary and Bre, and have a happy Easter! See more of their creations here.
