Our Exciting Day!!!
Today we picked Seifu up from his orphanage and then headed to the volcano lake. It was supposed to be about 1 1/2 hours but with Ethiopia traffic jams it took us about 2 1/2 hours with 6 of us cramped in an old Toyota seleca (if you don't know what kind of car this is all I can tell you is its a compact car). After we got to the lake resort to eat we finished a very good lunch and then as we were in the middle of dessert the roof on the middle of the building collapsed. It was like something out of a movie. We were all fine and I think only one lady was injured but we got out of there quick. Grant and our driver went back in to check and make sure everything was fine and the waiters were trying to get them to sit down and eat some more...haha, I don't think so. After that we decided to head back to Addis which only took about 2 hours to get back. We went to a market on the side of the road to get Seifu a new pair of shoes b/c the ones he has been wearing are too small. He loved his shoes and kept telling his dad thank you. After this we went to a little coffee shop here called Kaldi's so mama could get her some coffee and the kiddos could get ice cream. Seifu was really surprised after his first bite and we found out it was b/c it was his first time eating ice cream and he wasn't used to the cold. He finally got used to it and seemed like he enjoyed it. We took Seifu back to his orphanage and headed back to our hotel to call it a night. Only 48 hours left in Ethiopia and it is going to be hard to leave but nice to get home. Just can't wait to get Seifu home.
