Welcome to my travel blog! The countdown is on, eight days till I leave for Addis Ababa Ethiopia. For those of you wondering where is that? I included a map because I wondered too when I first heard that was where I was going. Today Jeremy and I spent the afternoon trying to figure out how I’m going to fit all the wonderful donations I have recieved and my clothes into two 50 pound suitcases. I’ve included some photos of all the donations. I am amazed at the generosity of my family and friends. This evening my friend Shannon, Jeremy and I went to dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant. For those of you who know me then you know how picky I am. So I thought it would be a good idea to try it out before I got there. We went to the Blue Nile restaurant in the International District in Seattle. The food was good, a little spicy. The waitress brought out the ingira (bread like stuff) that you use to scoop up your food. I asked for a fork and she said no I’ll teach you to use ingira. This begins my adventure! I’ll write more before I leave. Thanks again for your love and support!
