Day 2 Sunday 4-18-10

Here we are with ALL our luggage in the Ethiopian airport!!
Getting ready to get our travel visa.....
Sunday evening 8:10pm (Ethiopia time) ... 3:10am back home
We have arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!!!!

(Now at the room....)

The plane ride seemed sooo long but God gave us the strength to endure it!
After getting off the plane, we had to go right to the visa line so we'd have a travel visa. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be, plus we had so many families who had no clue just like us, with us! Then the sweet Browns who got through the visa line before most of us, gathered our luggage for us and we went out to meet Johannas, the AGCI coordinator - all 7 of 8 families on our trip were on our flight so we got to go through it all together! We are in room 103, it is nice and has Internet, which is of most importance so we can skype with Tyler!!

Off to go unpack and sleep it is now almost midnight here and we have to be up and ready to meet the woman who runs it all over here at 6:30 in the morning!! Our boy will be in our arms in a matter of hours!!!

The water heater in the bathroom :)

Our nice big bed...this was definitely not "roughing it"

Can you see our air conditioner?? Yep, that fan :) It was cool at night though, so it was actually just fine!! So sad that we were comfy in our hotel room and less than a block away, people were living on the streets...oh more to come....
