On the Way to Ethiopia
I have been to Africa before, but never to Ethiopia and have planned this trip very well. I have packed and re-packed and now I am actually on the plane for my six week stay in Africa. I am so excited, nervous and happy all at the same time.

This is a long 23 hour trip so there’s not much to do once I’m on the plane. What can you do on a flight this long?? REST…READ…RELAX…LISTEN TO MUSIC…
First thing I usually do on long flights is to close my eyes and say a prayer. In a few short (OK! Long) hours I will be in Addis Abba. This is the beginning of a wonderful adventure!!

Stay tuned!

Hello All from Addis Ababa,

Thanks very much for your comments. Ethiopia is an amazing country country with a rich history and beautiful people. Unfortunately the internet here is dial-up and the government block Google blogger, so I won't be able to post to my blog frequently. I can only get through a few times. I will continue to try.

Thanks!!! Linda
