Team arrives in Addis

After a long flight from Johannesburg we finally arrived in Addis Ababa at around 8.30pm. We flew on the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which was pretty cool.

After a lengthy process with visas and customs we set off for a traditional Ethiopian restaurant for some folk dancing and a very interesting meal.

We have now checked into the Adot-Tina Hotel in Addis and are looking forward to a good sleep. We will be getting up at 5am to catch our flight to Gondar in the northern part of the country.
