leaving dc



So far, so good. We're in DC, waiting for our flight to Rome and then on to Addis Ababa. Last night the First Pick Party was fun, fun, fun. I always seem to have the good fortune to sit next to the coolest person in the room. This time is was Yohannes Gebregeorgis, who is the founder of Ethiopia Reads. He has started libraries all over Ethiopia, and is doing wonderful work in improving the education of Ethiopia kids. He's up for the CNN Heroes award, and stands to win $100,000 to further his work. Please vote for him! You can vote more than once. I'm sitting here for my last half hour at the airport, voting over and over again. Heck - I paid $2.99 for internet access. Might as well make good use of it!







OK! Time to go!!!
