Well, we’re back from Ethiopia. And the only post I wrote during the trip was done via my phone and in the Newark airport. Not exactly the daily blog posts and photo extravaganza I (over) promised. Sorry about that.
The short version of a very long story is (1) we encountered many, many issues on our trip related to the donations we were attempting to bring into the country, (2) said issues ate up many hours we already had jam packed with orphanage visits, which left us behind schedule and scurrying to catch up most of the trip, (3) internet was down in Addis 3 of the 4 days we were there, (4) no reliable internet access where we were staying in Harar.
Basically, if we had time to shower late, late at night or in the wee hours of the morning, that was a major coup for the day. We were running non-stop for a week. But in the end, we had a really amazing and a really frustrating trip.
More posts are coming–for real. I’m just not sure when.
