If everything pans out, I'll be taking my first international flight in the early part of 2011. I am so excited about this. SO excited. So, in preparation – I'm actually going to make a real and sincere attempt at teaching myself some of the fundamentals of Amharic (the Ethiopian language). Of course, I've been married long enough to know how to count & can generally follow conversations – but I want to really learn. Plus, maybe my in-laws will be impressed and the suck up in me kind of loves that.
