Planting Season in Ethiopia

10 Jul

IMG_4387Farming is a grueling profession.  

Especially when you take away the 48 row planter and the GPS controlled guidance systems.  Maybe this steering  is not a global positioning system but instead, a good prodding switch.  While there is some mechanized farming done in Ethiopia, the two ox tillage technique comprises a vast majority of the agriculture production.  So as you sit in the air-conditioned cab listening to your favorite stereo music with a productivity apparatus capable of feeding the world, pray for your agricultural colleagues here in  Ethiopia who are putting in long days just to feed their families.

    I’m looking forward to your book with all the photos and stories of life in Ethiopia. You can do it.

      Thanks for the encouragement. I have thought about it. There would have been some good stories in dentistry as well.
