Hora Boka
Hi Kim, I am a volunteer for Red Cross and am currently assisting a colleague on a International Family Tracing project. One of our clients has stated he is from Hora Boka in Ethiopia, however upon doing some research we can't find much information about it. It would be great if you could provide us with some more information about the town, for instance names of any landmarks such as schools/mosques in Hora Boka. Any information you could provide would be very much appreciated. Please note my work Red Cross email address is but please respond to my personal email so I can access it outside of the office. Many Thanks. Kind Regards, Marya Ali

Hora Boka
Hi Marya Hora Boka is a small village, along a dirt road, about 5km from Robe in the Bale Mountains. I am afraid I do not know the names of any landmarks there, but there is a university and a Teacher Training College in Robe itself. I am sorry I cannot be of more help. Regards Kim

We are those parents!
There were many highlights, not just the Sof Omar caves! The whole experiece was delightful including meeting many Ethiopians who were always happy and pleased to welcome us. Many of the other highlights are included in Kim's blog, and of course it was great spending time with her and seeing how happy she is in Ethiopia. If you get a chance please do go but make sure you have a guide to take you to the best places.

I am very happy to see the Radar is being enforced for the drivers in Ethiopia. I used to take those roads myself and I witnessed many crashes due to speeding and so forth. I would like to thank any one trying to make this happen

I'm jealous
This sounds like a wow of a journey,.I know all the places and have fantastic memories of the region. The best way to experience the country is with the locals and it was done so democratically.

Broadband at last
This is the first time we've been onto your 'blog' or in fact any blog at all! We have only just gone onto broadband and it was getting almost impossible to use the internet. This is a brilliant site and gave us a much better idea of what you are up to. Great, keep writing!! You'll be able to use it to write your autobiography . Lots of love jean
