ethiopia trip: 09.20.2009


Arrived in Addis in the evening.  I had a nice flight–way too much food–had a nice seat mate and brushed up on a little Amharic.  She taught me “todias”  which is kind of slang for hello, maybe like “what’s up?”

Immediately went for visa and to exchange $. Big bag of donations questioned and searched by security at the airport.  What?

Greeted by two people (Ayele and Emma’s uncle Tegegn) at the airport. I’m feeling good-at least I have a ride.

Tried to call home all night—and most of the next morning—Sunday evening is a blur because I was very upset that I could not call home.
