    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.

    ... it to Addis :) the local time is 8:22pm ------------ It's now 9:39pm and we should be boarding in the next 15 minutes! I want to get on the plane. 17 hours. This makes my longest flight ever! ------------ It's 9:56 and we still haven't boarded haha, I wonder what the hold up is?! For the past hour or so I've been sitting next to this woman named Ellen, she's been in South Sudan! She's very sweet, I was giving her call phone advice! Once an tech person always a tech ...

    ... it. It's odd to explain. Yes at home we dream about just riding every day for 5-9hrs and no other worries, but things come up. The places we camp, our gear failing, the frustration with just about everything can cause you to get frazzled. So rest days pulling a chair out onto the grass by your tent and just watching the world go by are required. Having wifi in the tent was great this time, but do think it inturpted my sleeping. Life on tour is pretty simple ...

    ... town of Axum, hard to believe we were only 5km out of town. We hiked just a bit more up and saw pretty unreal unfinished stellae, carved many many centuries ago but never finished or moved. We also saw a "lion of judah" carving in a rock. These were ancient things, again right in front of me. Some of thestellae were still attached to giant rocks, made me wonder if the arrival of Christianity stopped the carving almost in its tracks. Just a lovely spot.

    So, Shushay and I rolled back ...

    ... a bit hectic for the guests trying to
    get out, in the end only a couple had slight burns. Speaking to some
    of the guests the maid on duty went around banging on the doors. Some
    managed to get their luggage whilst other did not. It was real
    confusion, the fire engines had problems getting under some of the
    cables and pipes. Once they had they very soon ran out of water and
    had to drive away to get more. Whilst they were spraying some of the
    people ...
