We were in the mountains in northern Ethiopia when I was suddenly confronted with another gym opportunity. I spotted a couple of cans of cement attached to a sturdy tree branch near our hotel and I went over for a better look. The desire to lift it got the better of me and I had to give it a try. Pretty soon I had a workout partner as one of the guys working at the hotel wanted to join me for a picture. Nothing like a little workout to bring people together.
