The London Half
Let's see. . . . Sitting in a nice London hotel room,
watching British comedy on TV, having put
my used toilet paper in the toilet (though Ruby forgot and put
hers in the waste bin), and had a good ol'
Subway sandwich for dinner. The best part
was seeing Sara and Dave and Hattie once more before
heading back to the States. Besides the flying all night with two kids asleep on me, thoroughly bothered to watch other passengers enjoy the extra room created by my three missing family members while we three present ones squished together for hours, I count this a pretty good day for this half of the family.
The Addis Half
Let's see. . . . Traditional Ethiopian injera for dinner--girls loved it, Steve
decided to go with handfuls of Ethiopian Apple
Jacks instead. But Tinsae's choice of
Mary Poppins for the evening movie? Sounds like everyone was happy with that. Otherwise, they went to church and spent a slow, quiet day at the guest home. It's not bad, but also getting old to pass yet another day just waiting to see if there will be fingerprints at the embassy in the morning.
Yesterday when we returned from Meki, we thought we saw our friend the
poor, starving horse lying on a side street, dead. Oh, we hope so. It would be a gift for the horse, and a fitting end to our journey together to have him depart the same day as at least half the fam.
Steve was pooped and I'm blogging from
a phone, so it's a good thing it was a slow
news day today.
