P is for Plane

For Christy’s trip last year, my trip last year, and our most recent trip, we flew to Ethiopia via Ethiopian Airlines. I’m honestly not a fan of the long flight, but our experience with Ethiopian Airlines helped ease that pain a little bit. The food was good. Soft drinks and water were readily available. The in-flight movie selection was pretty good (I’d like to thank the newest version of Fantastic 4 and Iron Lady for helping me fall asleep during the long flight home). Ethiopian Airlines is one of the most successful airlines based in Africa. And the government seems quite proud of their success (Ethiopian Airlines is owned by the Ethiopian government). As well they should be.

While waiting to board the flight from Dulles to Addis Ababa, we encountered a life-sized sign of a flight attendant from the airlines. I tried to get Aiden to put his arm around her. Somewhere buried  in the boxes and boxes and boxes of family photographs, there’s a picture of me when I was about his age. And I have my arm awkwardly draped around a cutout of Jessica Rabbit. So I thought it would be a good idea to get a picture of Aiden in a similar pose.

He wouldn’t cooperate. This is the closest I could get him to standing beside the cutout. But that’s OK. I think it’s still a pretty good picture.
