He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our Thorntree inspired tour of stangers (1 Australian, 1 Belgian, 2 Brits, 1 Spaniard, 1 French-Canandian, and yours truly) had an amazing time. He is knowledgable, passionate, and best of all, quite funny. By the end of the trip I was so in love with Ethiopia and the friendships I built in such a short time, I was “that” lady in the airport, crying so hard immigration practically waived me through. I am still in contact with Awoke and three others from the tour. It was such a special trip for me and my life and I can’t thank Awoke enough for the effort he put into it. Bravo, my friend!
