Well, what irks me is that both trips would be a compromise, as both don't go to Harar, which I really want to see. And it costs too much money for it to be a compromise.
I'm also looking if I can't go to Turkmenistan, of which I saw little last year, Uzbekistan(which I know and is beautiful), followed by Tajikistan (which I don't know).
Yes, my mother-i.l. is strong, but at that age the bones are as fragile as egg-shells.
