During our weekends in November, we had the opportunity to explore the countryside surrounding Addis Ababa.  The village of Debre Zeyit (Amharic for “Mount of Olives”) is situated in the Misraq Shewa Zone of the Oromia Region, just south east of the capital city.  Below are a few images from our time there…
