The Real World

I'm off to Ethiopia today for a couple weeks. I'm not sure if I'll be able to update the blog while I'm there (I suspect not) but if I can, I will. I'm looking forward to the trip, though I know it will be challenging to be faced with real poverty for the first time. I've been to Africa before, but South Africa is more like a displaced chunk of Europe. Ethiopia is the un-real deal.

Bringing clean water to ten villages is the goal of the trip. The film I make will be used to raise support for the wells and other infrastructure needed to create and maintain a clean water source.

Wish me luck.

Good luck man, it's a pretty amazing thing you're doing. Who knows, maybe you'll accidentally find some sick bouldering there too.

PURE was awesome by the way, the review will be in Rock and Ice soon.
