A Year Without Ice Cubes One year through Africa and Asia


ETHIOPIA | Wednesday, 25 March 2009 | Views [508] | Comments [3]

Last minute posting at the Addis Ababa airport (omg the internet connection is AMAZING!!!!)  Well, we are off to another continent...hopefully with faster internet and less bees.  Haha, I keep telling everyone at the airport who looks at my passport, "Look, it's my birthday today, see?!"  The immigration guy even sang to me.  Ahhh, what a glorious, glorious day.

I'm gonna miss Africa, though, particularly Ethiopia.  Great country.  Great people.  Great food.  But it is time to move on...

SO, I hope to find some super fast free wireless as soon as we land in Mumbai and upload all my photos and videos from the past 2 months.  Keep you fingers crossed.

Signing off from Africa...




Your Uncle Larry is probably going to be emailing you ALL the time (and be envious all the time) while you are in India. The adventure continues....and I just called Gramma to encourage her to get back on the computer and try emailing you on her own!)

A hug....Aunt Lynn

I'm already jealous. I got your intended itinerary (which will probably change) from your Mom. Suggestion: travel by third class rail for daytime trips. It will be squishy crowded, but you'll meet real Indians and really taste Indian life, non-Westernized. If you'll be travelling at night, go by first class (A/C, private room, comfortable bunk beds, higher cost)so you can sleep, and you'll meet highly educated Indians. In either case, have a great time in the world's largest democracy, the birthplace of two of the world's great religions, and the paradoxical home of a truly ancient culture and evolving high tech society. Rural India is the best! Ask me questions, if so moved. I was stationed for 2 years in Kundeshwar village, Tikamgarh district, Madhya Pradesh, teaching village-level food production and water resource development, 1968-70.
