We’re In Ethiopia

Ok so here’s the update on our trip! We made it to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A 13 hour flight is never the most comfortable thing in the world, but y’all…Ethiopian Air is legit. We got 3 hot meals (that were actually pretty good). Each seat had an individual touch screen monitor with DOZENS of movies, games, and more. So we were definitely pleased with the flight. However, we only got about 2 hours of very light sleep and now it’s 8 in the morning and we have a full day ahead. Pray for strength and for no jet lag!

So here’s the highlight of the trip so far…After we landed in Ethiopia, Blake and I got a WAR EAGLE!! This is why I always wear an Auburn shirt in airports. I love feeling like a part of the Auburn Family, even when I’m thousands of miles from home.

Now we are waiting for about another 2 hours to catch a flight to Kigali, Rwanda. The flight will be about 2 1/2 hours long. Then we will be done with traveling for the next few days! Can’t wait to get to our destination and get to work!

By the way, this airport is kinda sketch. The power keeps flickering (and so does the internet). A minute ago, the power went out and an airport employee opened up an electrical box and banged on it until the power came on. No lie.

And another thing…I know that back home this week the temperature is in the triple digits. Well, just to make you jealous, it’s 57 degrees where we are right now and it’s supposed to be in the 70’s just about the whole time we’re here. Ballin’.

Keep checking back often…internet is off and on so I’ll post whenever I get the chance!
