.Ethiopia - day 2 - a little teaser.

.Ethiopia, day 2 - a little teaser.  I am excited to write about day two but today it will be brief.  On day two in Ethiopia we went to see the Noonday Artisans.  It was awesome!  That about sums it up.  Awesome.  I am going to write more about these beautiful ladies in a couple of weeks.  I took some pictures of the new fall line and I can't show you until August 28th, so I am waiting until then.  I will leave you with a little peak into their shop.  

Here I am with all their storage beads!
