We returned directly to Vancouver to enable us to visit Brad and Anette, and for Roger to have some meetings. There was such relief in coming back to Canada and the ability to enter a clean, well stocked grocery store sent us into a giddy shopping spree. We ordered enough Thai food the first night to prompt being asked, "is this for a party?". Over the weekend we hit a fabulous seafood restaurant, Rodney Oyster House, for raw oysters and clam chowder, and Brad and Anette made a fabulous turkey dinner with all the trimmings for us --- gastronomic heaven and the thought of questionable ground beef in Mek'ele became more of a distant memory.
