One of the funnier instances that we have had on our trip came as Michelle was getting ready to take a photo of the kids and I (as seen below). She caught the exact moment when Bereket looked down, realizing that he was standing on top of an ant hill, and they were NOT happy about it. He quickly jumped off, swatting the ants off his bare legs, while Eskedar did the same (I think more out of "sympathy pains" than reality). We all had a good laugh, but did tend to keep an eye out where we stepped from then on.
It's so nice, feeling all alone, zoned in on your own thoughts..when suddenly, a middle aged woman comes speed walking past us (on a pretty steep part of the climb)! And we thought that WE were making good time! We soon lost sight of her.
