I heard from Caitlin on Saturday! All safe and sound. I think she was a little annoyed with me she was like, ‘Its only been 2 weeks since i had wifi, dang’ and I wanted to say, ‘well actually it was 15 days’ but I didn’t 🙂 But I do need to remember ‘No news is good news’ and I need to expect there will be times when we may not hear from Cait for a couple weeks, or even more. I cant promise I will be comfortable without communication for long periods of time but I will try not to freak out at two weeks.
Caitlin and her group are in for their regular training. They were scheduled to be in Jima but ended up in Addis. The training wraps up tomorrow and she and about 6 other volunteers will be heading on vacation! I am so happy for them to get these couple weeks of reprieve from the tough conditions. They will be vacationing in Hawassa and Arbor Minch. From what I have read Hawassa is a popular destination in the Oromia region, located on Lake Awassa which is home to hippos and many species of water birds. I am sure they will see some amazing sights.
