Well, not really “leavin’” on a jet plane. More like already left. And came back. Two weeks ago today, we were in the air with Ethiopia as our ultimate destination. It was a long flight – something like 20 hours in a plane. By the time we reached Sudan, I guess you could see the exhaustion on my face.
But before that video, I promise I was more excited, even though I wasn’t exactly thrilled about the idea of flying over the ocean. Or into Sudan, for that matter.
Ready to board the flight to Detroit, our first leg of a long, long journey.
The airport in Amsterdam had a Lego mockup of their terminal. I think every airport should have a Lego display. And no, I didn't bring you back any "special" brownies from Amsterdam.
Flying over Egypt. No, you can't see any pyramids.
I'll be honest. We were a little concerned about stopping in Sudan. Everyone told us there's nothing to it. It's just dust as far as you can see. While this isn't exactly a towering skyline, does this look like dust as far as you can see to you? At least they were right saying Sudan wasn't as scary as you might think.
Ready to take off from Khartoum. So ready to be off the plane. Even more ready to finally meet our Little Girl! The picture's a little blurry. I guess the Flight Attendant who took it was also ready for the flight to be over.
The flight tracker confirmed that yes, we were in fact going to Addis Ababa.
