In ET now.
16 stopover. ET airlines gave me a free hotel and visa.
There is active chabad here.
FYI ET airlines will not short check a bag to ADD, even on a 16 hour stopover. They're worried I'm doing Hidden city

I started having Internet access regularly, I couldnt really do it from the South african Bush.
I think things are more collected and organized if I write them later.
I have a 3.5 day train ride to write a TR ;)
