Peeps Corps Peepiopia! (Happy Easter)

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.

It's not all fun and games.  Sometimes all the crazy food catches up to you and you end up spending way too much time in the toilet (Shint Bet).  If you're  unlucky, you get double dragon (out of both ends).  Izoha!

    I love the Peeps. Made me laugh out loud. Especially the Double Dragon Club to which I almost became a member.
