Live from Ethiopia

Hey everybody, we’re doing great in Ethiopia. Text messaging isn’t working, Internet is sketchy, power was out all day. So sending any updates has been hard. Sorry.

But despite the bewilderment of international travel, we had an awesome day meeting Milo. He’s so tiny and adorable. We had several hours with him today, he mostly watches everybody with his big, big eyes.

That’s all I’ve got for now.

Traveling to Ethiopia: Day 1

We’re leaving for the airport at 10:00 a.m. We’ll hopefully have a tear-free goodbye with Lexi (yeah, right) and then head to the airport for much waiting and metal-detection.

Lexi will be spending the ten days while we’re gone with her grandma, hopefully having a blast and being spoiled and not dwelling too much on the fact that we’re gone. We’re not sure how this is going to go, but we have lots of friends lined up to step in and help out if need be.

This afternoon we’ll fly to Washington, D.C., for about a three-hour layover, then depart for Ethiopia in the evening.

I’ve written blog posts like this for each day of our journey, explaining what the itinerary says we’ll be doing (Abby wrote up an overview of the whole trip). You can also follow along with what actually happen on Twitter, as I hope to post a handful of updates per day (assuming local technology cooperates). Depending on how much computer access we get, we may try a few blog posts from Ethiopia as well.

Thanks for following along!
