The Final Exam last week was really good and I hope that we both get an A. But we’ll see what Ato Kebreab says about it. In the weekend we didn’t do so much fun since we had to study for the Final Exam in Environmental Engineering that is on Wednesday. It’s a big course with a lot to learn, especially equations, and unfortunately we didn’t pay so much attention during class so we are struggling a lot to remember everything. But yesterday we took a break to have some fun and went to Bole and a big shopping mall where we eat pizza (not good for the diet…) and bowled with our friends. We both suck pretty hard in bowling but after a while Antonia really got it and she was actually good. It was worse for me, I really sucked! But I ended the game with a strike and improved a lot; from 22 points in the first round to 73 in the second! Getting better, right? I guess you wonder how I can get 22 but I told you, I do suck. We also found out that the Euro cup has begun and that Sweden will play tonight. So were going to the German bar to watch the game. Football lovers!
Our friends in Hash told us about the Coca Cola Road Race on Sunday so we registered for it. 7 k is maybe a bit optimistic, especially when were at an altitude of 2400 meters, but you should always be positive. And you get this nice t-shirt and we really don’t want to miss that… After the run we will have our Amharic name in a baptizing of bear and water. They are sooo good, but we won’t announce them before that. I can reveal that they match our personalities very well… It will be about 5000 people running but I hope that they’re gone before the baptizing – or else I will be so embarrassed.
Yesterday it was exactly one month before we leave our lovely Ethiopia. We both have kind of panic since we don’t want to go home. I don’t know how I am going to make it without this life… I have never felt so good in my entire life; it feels like I’m home. We’re planning to have a huge party for all our friends to say goodbye and give them all of our clothes and other stuff that we don’t need any more. It will be so fun!
Antonia is at the barber doing shorobas in black right now. I hope it will be good, or else I will have a busy night taking them out…
