Lake Langano Trip!

It has been awhile since our last post.........the internet connection and speed here is downright........UGHH!! Anyways...onto more pleasant experiences. At the end of March, the family headed out of town for 4 days to Lake Langano. It is about 3 to 3 1/2 hours (depending on traffic) and is out in the country. We had a wonderful time! It may not look like much in the pictures, but it was a little bit of heaven compared to the overly crowded city of Addis. We stayed in a small cabin and tent. We had a kitchen and fire pits to cook our meals. We also had a restroom facility. We were not roughing it at all like we had expected. We played and swam in the water, played volleyball, played bocce ball, fished, played card games/board games, seen lots of different kinds of birds, and enjoyed every minute. It was really nice and we were able to go with some friends who knew the ropes. You will see that Eli caught the only fish of the weekend and it was capital U for ugly. Then Eli beat us all in Bocce Ball....never doubt that beginner's luck idea. Glori and Eli collected shells on the beach and played all day from sun up to sun down. Sophi did well. We had her playpen set up and she played, played, played and slept. All in all a great time and we want to visit again. Enjoy the pictures!

I couldn't see any pictures, but I guess I'm doing something wrong! It's so nice to see you updated something. I had sent you an e-mail with no response, so I was beginning to worry about you. One of my tutees is from Addis and she wrote something for me in her language. I haven't scanned it yet, though. I can't do it on the computer so have to scan. Glad all is well. As Angie said - WE MISS YOU!
