We’re headed to Africa in a week and several people have asked how they can follow along. While there, we’ll have only limited access to the internet, but I will try keep this updated as often as possible.
It’s almost time to pack up and leave. The itinerary is mostly set and we’re getting excited. We won’t stay in any place for long, but plan to see a lot of both Ethiopia and Kenya. The current plan is:
