Today we arrive at our hotel

But not till almost midnight!

By now we will have been traveling for over 24 hours and we still have about 12 more hours to go of air travel and then car travel. The hotel we are staying at is really more like a lodge. It is very nice for Ethiopia standards. They advertise having your very own bathroom and the following written exactly this way on their website:
  • Granite floor
  • Luxurious complimentary bath amenities
  • All rooms include a sink
  • Shaving mirrors and shavers including but not limited to aftershaves
  • Hair dryer machines are available up on request
  • All rooms comes with new slippers, teeth brush, comb, swing kit and shower cup
When we finally arrive in Addis Ababa it is supposed to be raining. This is a large city with two classes. Wealthy and poor. We will be staying in the nicest part of two among the embassy. It is also where the African Union resides.
