Wed (Feb. 17): sight see in Dubai

Thurs (Feb. 18): Dubai to Addis Ababa. Arrive around noon. I have an email in to Holt to see if we can meet Enatalem that afternoon since we're arriving so early. Cross your fingers!

Fri (Feb. 19): official day to meet Enatalem!

  1. I'm excited about all of your trip, but especially the trip to Dubai. My husband and I are hoping to spend some time there on our way as well.

  2. Ok I'm like slightly envious of your sight seeing in Dubai!!!! Don't do any downhill indoor skiing and hurt yourself or anything. ;)
