Spending only one or two days in Ethiopia African land of Culture and History
All International Ethiopian Airways flights travel to their hub in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where we will change our flight to Nairobi, Kenya. Ethiopia will be our first African stop and a moment to refresh ourselves and begin our African adventure. If Congressman Steve Cohen join us on this flight we will meet the Ethiopian Prime Minister and participate in a grand historic ceremony in Addis Ababa. We will visit City Hall and participate in a "Sister City" arrangement. We will visit schools, Churches and by all means we will visit the Ethioian national museum and see the remains of the world first human. Ethiopian is the only African country that has never been colonized. They have a written language that is over 4000 years old and there is more to learn and see than you can imagine. Ethiopians are extremely cultured and they are very, very, very proud people. We will have the opportunity to visit Ethiopia as we travel to Kenya and on our return to America. Those who travel will have the opportunity to plan an excursion outside of our scheduled tour for those who have more time and money to spend extra time in Africa.
We will give our group and introduction to Ethiopia by our spending a few days in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We plan to do a picnic and our family member will roast a goat and we all will enjoy a family gathering with other Ethiopia. For those who enjoy alcohol you can ejoy the traditional Ethiopian beer.
After spending a few days in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia we will board the plane again and travel about 724 miles from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Nairobi, Kenya. This flight is about 2 hours and venture to the second half of our African Tour and land in Nairobi, Kenya.

In 2005 I took this picutre of Ethiopia walking near a college. It is amazing that a face and shape like is very common in Ethopia.
Just as I was putting this website together my wife Bogalech looked at the picture only to learn that this was Kotobe college where she was a student when I met her.
