Arrival in Ethiopia


the group of IGERT fellows traveled from Boston through Dubai, and arrived at Addis Ababa Bole International airport at 3:30pm on a nice and warm Saturday, January 16, 2016.

The vans were waiting for us and took us to the Samantha and Kefetew guesthouses, where are are staying. Everyone is tired, but happy to be in Ethiopia.
