As for more recent than a few days ago... We've been able to spend quite a bit of time with our sponsor girl Emebet and also have my parent's sponsor girl Erusalem with us today. This was all after being at the Lem Lem school, where Mia attended private school through COEEF, taking pictures of the sponsor girls and helping them write postcards to... See More their sponsors. Some soccer playing, picture taking and getting to know more people and kids thrown in the mix while there too. Yesterday we spent quite a bit of time with Mia's cousin Yeshi and her little 4 year old son. Yeshi is who Mia had been living with when we adopted her. Trying to remember what else has been going on...a lot, that's for sure. Right now Mia is with one of our drivers, Berhanu at the Merkato (largest open air market on the continent). We're not with them because we'll get charged the local "Face Tax"...that us westerns get charged all too often. They are there looking for a few things for Emebet and Erusalem. We've done some shopping for Emebet, but didn't get it all done and none yet for Erusalem, since we just barely got hooked up with her today. Oh and they're going to check into sewing machines, which we'll probably be getting for the orphanage in the morning.
