13th November

Amazingly, having completed yet more paperwork and bought local and international car insurance, we have now been reunited with the car. So we are heading off to Ethiopia tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn in the vain hope that they will let us cross the border. If we fail, I guess we will be driving all the way back here to rethink things. So another day by the pool - there's not much else to do - and we are trying not to think about what officialdom lies ahead.
If we get through everything, we shall be back in Gimbie by Tuesday evening.
