Taking it all in

Yesterday was full in our attempt to learn as much as possible about the culture and history of Ethiopia. We have another full day today so I'll sum it all up in a few words.

Orthodox church where Haile Selassie was crowned. Coffee break. Shopping/Bargaining. National Museum, 'Lucy'. Tej (Ethiopian honey wine). Cigar by the pool. In bed 7pm and awake at 12am, still suffering from jet lag. Our massages should be great today!

Tonight is the night we arrive at the guest house and meet Semenesh in the am!


  1. Praying for all aspects of this journey, especially a sweet meeting and easy time of adjustment for you all...

  2. Sounds like an amazing day. I am so happy to hear you too are having a great time and get to experience the country for a few days. Have a blast today anticipating tomorrow morning!!!! Sneek in a little kiss from me.

  3. So glad you had a good day and feel like you really saw a lot of Semma's country. Special memories and photos for her. Have a relaxing day today and great "JOY in the morning"
    Blessings, LOVE and HUGS - Mamaw

  4. So happy you get to 'know' more of Ethiopia before you meet your sweet girl. I would love to hear more later, after you adjust and are home, again with your daughter. Thanks for sharing....and praying for you both. Hope the plane there was ok, and I"m sure now the way home will be easier with a wonderful person in your arms.
