We're home! I feel sad to have left Addis but feeling the warm wonderful welcome at the airport  (click the two links for more pics). Thank you to everyone for the love and support. I will reflect more on Amazing Ethiopia soon and my bonding with LT but right now I'm just trying to get through as the jet lag has taken a toll (such a very small price to pay for such an amazing trip). 

For now, here's my Top Ten list.

1. Holding Liv Tunsitu
2. Meeting all the other Ethiopian Children
3. My driver and friend Becky
4. Aleze Jazz Club
5. Getting called 1st at the Embassy
6. Staying at the Ayat House
7. Meeting Maria and Wode
8. Learning more about Belay and Travis
9. The streets and life of Ethiopia
10. The dancing

I miss Addis Ababa so much that I almost ache. We were lucky enough to be hosted by our local friends Rihan and Millard. And it sure makes a difference when locals are there to show you the way. I also want to thank Kris and Sandro for sharing the amazing experience.  It was  truly life changing.

For the families I owe pics to, I appreciate your patience and I will try my best to get you your beloved pics soon.
