Hello from Ethiopia!

We made it to Addis Ababa today!  It was a very long night!  It is beautiful here, but destitute and heartbreaking too.  It is sure a heart opening experience.  Our guest house is clean and very nice.  We are here with 8 other families, 3 of which traveled to Rome as well.  Rome was fascinating!  It was just amazing to see the sights and learn about the history.  I want to learn more!  We had quite a scary taxi cab ride to the Rome Airport last night!  Wow!  All I can say is no street lines, no traffic lights, and no speed limit!  We didn't say 1 word the whole 30 min. ride there!  That is saying something for me!!!  Tomorrow we get to meet Eli!  We can't wait!  It's hard to believe the time is finally here!!!!
