Preparding for Adventure

Here we are just inside 2008 and I'm getting ready for adventure again. Back to Ethiopia, same project I was on in March of 2007 (see blog entries for words and photos--that's a trip I actually documented). This time, similar but a little bit different--I'll go into it sometime when I have a little more battery life left on my computer. I'm leaving the 9th, so I promise it will be sometime before then. Time to get packing!

Beth,

Not that you've answered any of my questions before, but. . . .

Who are the guys (most of them in fatigues) running around carrying AK-47s in the Ethiopian photos? Are they government soldiers or mercenaries or militia members or tribal gang leaders or what? Or is it really always possible to tell? Is it just safest to assume that the cats with the heat are in charge? Whom are they protecting & what rules do they carry hardware to enforce? Like, I'm assuming the guns ain't just for show. Isn't the part with people casually packing automatic weapons a trifle scary? Or do you just get used to it? That stuff is waaaaaaaaaaay beyond most people's experience.
