Memories of San Antonio
Hoyt Smith (left) and Darrel Hagberg (right), both award winning photographers, have collaborated on a one hour slide show video for those who have served or those who are serving in Ethiopia as well as anyone interested in today's Ethiopia and its people. The main focus is on the two week trip taken from September 24 - October 7, 2012. Photos contrast the modern Ethiopia and the timeless Ethiopia. Ethiopian background music is from the 1960's -1970's.
These are still on sale at $5 each (or 3 for $10). Proceeds from the sale (over cost) of the DVD will be donated to the Ethiopia III Conference Working Fund. Contact Darrel at email@example.com.
