Day 1 – 5/18/2017
After 36 hours of traveling, we finally made it to Ethiopia! Once we recovered our bags and braved the crazy Ethiopia drivers we checked into The Getfam Hotel at around 3:30 pm or 5:30 am Texas time. As soon as we unpacked our suitcases we headed to the hospital and started organizing supplies and equipment to get ready for the cases tomorrow! We are all so thankful for the 24-hour layover in Dubai to recover from Jet lag and site see and are now ready to take on the next couple of weeks and do what we can for the people of Ethiopia!
