Photo of the Day Tuesday 8th January 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…..”  The desire to succeed means nothing without the will to prepare”

I could almost give the photo today a title…”I am not sure’  as it looks like the child has to do some thinking about something.  Taken in a small village in Ethiopia, it is a timeless image.  Her expression, clothes and the light for the photo are all just right.   Now it is the start of 2013, but the Ethiopian calendar has 13 months, each with 30 days except for the last month (which has 5 or 6 days).   The New Year starts on September 11th, and the Ethiopian calendar is about 8 years behind the ‘regular’ calendar.  Ethiopia is also the only African country with its own alphabet.  It also has an unusual way of telling the time, with 0600 being the start, so 0900 becomes 3 o’clock in the Ethiopian system.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
