the power goes out. such is the life of a crowded corner shop with 8 people sharing one dialup connection.
but anyway, POTENTIALLY, we chose at least 2 of the new villages for our scale up plans in 2010 today... and I'll hopefully be going to visit them this weekend!
it's another warm, wonderful night. after an all-day round of meetings (and 25 hrs and counting awake!), Marjorie, Mengesha (our local lead partner) and I decided to explore a new part of Mekele (new, meaning Marjorie and I had never been over this way before), with the intent of finding Marjorie a nice colorful Ethiopian umbrella. No luck, but we did find this internet shop that is the pure definition of chaos. No sheep or goats this time though.
(and also, in my previous post - I meant 10 Birr, not 100 Birr. Big difference. And I apologize if I did actually write 10 Birr.)
Love you all.
