    Favorite thing:
    If you are going to travel across the world and visit interesting places like Harar you should take another member of VT along with you! The first photo shows my friend and wonder VA (Virtual Attendee) - Gail. Gail is known as Glo39 here on VT and was a Virtual Attendee at the VT Euromeet in Karlsruhe, Germany. She asked if she could travel with me and she has been a fabulous travelling companion. She weighs nothing yet still keeps in touch. In fact she writes me encouraging notes during my travels. If you would like a VA then go to a VT Meeting and take your Virtual (Tourist) friends with you!!!

    Favorite thing: While Harar has its share of beggers it is nothing like Addis and other parts of Ethiopia. In fact it is somewhat recent in origin here. Bottom line..don't give money to them...the locals discourage it and even frown on it to a certain extent. All you are doing is teaching the kids that it works and you make it worse for the next person that comes to this beautiful city. If you want to give go to a local Church or Mosque and give them the a donation.
