which is a pity as it is an historical important town.
The 18-day will visit some prehistoric sites as well, which I would like to see. There are two inland flights included.
Both don't visit the Islamic town of Harar.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harar
And I just hope my mother.i.l (95) will be out of her plaster/ cast before I leave, and doing well.....one never knows at that age.
The 18 day trip sounds best - is it that
much more expensive? Best wishes to the MIL - at 95 a fall like that would put most completely out of action (it did for my grandmother at 85) - must be a tough old bird.
