|A colleague invited Roger to his home for New Years on September 11th. The traditional coffee ceremony where the beans are roasted was performed.|
|This is where Roger has been staying while in Addis Ababa|
|The north has had lots of rain and they expect good crops -- unfortunately that is not the case in the south|
|Roger said camels are everywhere and used for transporting salt and other commodities to the markets|
|White honey is made in northern Ethiopia|
|Sulfur and salt|
|Salt in the core box -- they have to go deep to get to the potash|
|It's very tough drilling in salt - this drill is 18 months old and won't make it to 5 years.|
|Roger visiting the Danakil Depression|
One bonus is Ethiopia is on a different calendar --- the end result is we are 7 years younger in Ethiopia! Now if it could just erase 7 years of lines and wrinkles!
Another adventure begins.
