Quick blog to answer a few questions, I sent a bigger one to my sis-in-law "guest blogger" with a few pictures. So that should be coming whenever she wakes up in the Heartland of America. :)
Until then, yes I am using internet at the Union Hotel. We have had no issues and only a few power outages since being here. It's actually not that slow and works quite nicely actually.
The beds at the Union. Yes they are hard, but honestly Zach and I haven't had any problems sleeping whatsoever. I think any of you coming here should find the same. Different than what we're used to, but really nice compared to what we were imagining. Oh, and we are in room 301, Beth, which means we get to hike up a number of flights of stairs. Whew!
Tera, I think it was, they actually spell "Binyam" 40 different ways here. :) They pronounce it mostly "Bin-yam-ay" which apparently is kind of a pet name-to add "ay" to the end of a name. Or "Bini".
It for now, some cultural stuff this morning that Zach and I have already done so we'll probably visit Kolfe for Nicole Anderson and then walk around the city a bit. This afternoon we meet with the boys' doc to ask questions and then love on the boys.
Love and hugs,

The New Busy think 9 to 5 is a cute idea. Combine multiple calendars with Hotmail. Get busy.

Sounds like things are going great! I am so happy for you, and wish so much to be back in ET myself! I can't wait to hear about your journey to Kolfe! Thank you so much!

Have so much fun, Tesi! I am so jealous of you guys. You're right about the spellings of Binyam. Our Bini came with papers that spelled Biniam about 2,000 different ways, but the majority were Biniam. SO that's what we went with. And we call him Bini-ay all the time. I think the 'ay' is supposed to mean 'dear one' or 'beloved' or something. At least that's what we're hoping!
