this blog was created to chart the journey to Ethiopia and back...Tessa Bezu came home August 2008!
I hope you had a great time in the Windy City. It has been a long time since I was there.Lenka
Hope you had a great trip...never been! Glad you're back! Missed you :)
Hope you guys had a great trip! As for your question about the guest house vs. hotel, we flew home next to a family with Wide Horizons who stayed at their guest house and really loved the experience. There were other families staying there too, and the guest house provided all their meals. They reflected on that as being a highlight of their trip. Also, when they did their exploration in the city, they were able to leave the baby with a caregiver. This is something we would have liked to have taken advantage of! So if that were our situation, well, hmmm... we might have been inclined to do the guest house route (assuming it was not attached to a night club!) Maybe you can split the difference? Spend a couple of nights at the Hilton or Sheraton recovering from jet lag without middle of the night feedings and then "check in" to the guest house? We'll be checking back for your referral! Hopefully soon!
My email was acting funny yesterday- thanks for the heads up. I Tivoed it, haven't watched it yet! Wonder if it was our party??? How was your trip?
