We made it!!

Hi family and friends!!

HAAAAAPPPYYY NEW YEAR!!! This is Amika and I get to be the first to blog about our exciting day 1! We have finally arrived in Ethiopia after a 12-hour flight to Dubai (which I must personally say, was…wow, great) and a 4- hour flight to Addis Ababa. The amazing Soliana Paradise waited several hours at the airport for our delayed arrival. We ran into a few happenings (e.g., our packing tape was about to be confiscated), but nothing Dr. Crowley couldn’t fix! Unfortunately, Michael’s luggage went missing, but we are crossing our fingers that it will arrive tomorrow, especially (as Annie brought up) since he doesn’t have anyone to borrow clothes from.

A little more about our day. We arrived at our hotel around 5pm, rested, headed out to our first dinner in Ethiopia, followed by the countdown at the Sheraton Addis Ababa. Thanks to Soliana’s wonderful planning, we have had a fantastic day 1. Tomorrow, the real fun starts, where we will be going to a school to work on social stories and professional development.

I would have to conclude that though it’s only day 1, this trip so far is everything I looked forward to and is going to exceed all my fabulous expectations.

Family and friends, please stay tuned for more!
