We arrive in Addis yesterday morning, 10pm pacific time. We were exausted after 28 hours of traveling and no more then six hours of sleep between us both. It was so nice to arrive at the Sheraton and relax by the pool after a delicous Indian meal. We decided to go to sleep at about 4pm because Kelly fell asleep while drinking his banana milk shake.
This morning we were outside enjoying the sunrise and listening to the morning prayer that echoed from the mosque below our hotel garden. We are trying to take in all the sight, sounds, and smells of our daughter's birth country.
After the sun rose we enjoyed the most amazing continental breakfast. They had fresh juiced blends, a table full of fresh baked breads, omelets made to order, a table of fresh cheeses, and anything else you can think of. The cappacino was also amazing, made with delicious Ethiopian coffee. We do feel a little out of place at the Sheraton, with all the asian buisness men sitting around us, but we're taking advantage of the accomidations non the less. Everything we buy here is so expensive and then 10% plus 15% is added to it. We're wondering why they can't just tell us the full price.
We are about to leave for the Marketo, the largest open air market in Africa, and hope to find some better deals.
That's all for now... we'll have more advantures to share later. LOVE YOU JUDAH!!!
