The Damu Hotel is near the airport on a main road into Addis. The hotel was OK for the most part and the staff were pleasant. There is a restaurant attached that I did not use, but it seemed very popular.
i had a few issues - I need light to read and I wasn't able to get my bed lamp replaced until my second day there. I was annoyed that they did not allow me to take their airport shuttle to the airport to retrieve my lost bag and set me up for what I felt was an expensive taxi ride back to the airport that is 1.5 km from the hotel according to their cards....even though I didn't use the airport shuttle to or from the hotel during my stay.

With only two weeks left it has started to become a very bittersweet few weeks remaining. On Monday two volunteers who from Israel who were living and working with me went back home to Israel. As they left the kids wouldn't let them go many of the kids were crying and telling them not to go. And as I sat there and watched I realized how hard this is truly going to be. The Israeli girls were only here for 3 weeks I will have been here for 2 months. I am definitely coming back ...

... was more like a chant and from memory went like this: 'Oh yah oh i o i oh yah!'
Plenty of participation and often unwanted as I got the rhythm wrong but nobody minded and all those around me beamed back big smiles that made me want more and more to get this moment absolutely right.

... excesses you'd find in any US city. I'm all for capitalism and reward for hard work, but when a corrupt system only allows the rich to get richer and the poor to remain ignored I see that as one of the great moral failures of mankind.
Shortly before making it back to our car we encountered a group of armed security forces (looked like police and/or military) excitedly rushing around a parked car without any driver in it. They appeared to ...
