Getting Oriented


This post is delayed  because I have been unable to connect to my blog, more to follow soon (hopefully).

I arrived safely, had an enjoyable weekend and am ready to get to work this week. Mainly, I’ll be working on coordinating logistical details for the Leadership Beyond Boundaries Program, being hosted in Addis Ababa by the Center for Creative Leadership, in July. As well, I hope to meet with a local woman, Salem, who produces handmade Ethiopian jewelry, to discuss possibilities for marketing it back in the States. A more in-depth post will follow later this week, as I gain a better sense of the city, the people and tasks at hand. There’s a lot to learn, as usual.

Some photos have been posted to my flickr account. There’s a link on the right: JTV’s photos.
