Team 2 has safely arrived at Project Mercy and Team 1 transitioned work to them and headed to Addis Ababa. They have safely arrived and part of the team has begun their journey back to the states! The remaining team 1 members will be flying to various historical sites as part of a multi-day tour of Ethiopia to learn more about the people and culture they have grown to love.
No strangers to travel complexities – the team is bringing home a significant amount of coffee (they do every year) and discovered that the rules around what could be taken out of the country had changed – and much of what they brought was confiscated! They are working to get the confiscated beans back and plan to redistribute them between the remaining team members.
Here are some additional pictures the team sent. Click on an image to enlarge.
