Update from the Hale bunch
Well hello there... Coming to you live and direct from the business center at the Addis Ababa Hilton. Things have been going good so far. Hopefully we'll straighten out the internet connection issue so that we can get on more often. We honestly haven't done much yet. Slept til about noon yesterday, got up and kickin' around, hit a bank and a little grocery store...got a few haircuts out of the way.We've also met some great people along the way. One guy at the guest house that is here picking up his adoptive 10 month old daughter is from Utah. He's been hanging with us some as we go out and about. We also met a really cool guy that works for the State Dept. Talked to him a bit and got his business card. Oh, and can't forget the lady we met on the plane from Rome to Istanbul. She's originally from South Africa and is now a fashion journalist in Milan...and asked us if we'd like to come to her beach house one of the days we're back in Milan...only a little over an hour on the train. I do believe we'll have to take her up on that. So we're off now to visit Tigist's grandpa and lots of other little things on our list of things to do. We'll check in later when we can!
