We are in Dubai!

Hi everyone! We are in our hotel room in Dubai. For those of you who
are adopting families, we flew Emirates from Houston to Dubai and they
make you have a forced layover but they give you hotel vouchers and
meal vouchers during your stay and it was cheaper than flying
Ethiopian. Emirates is a super fancy airline and we absolutely loved
it. They have individual TVs for each seat with hundreds of movies,
music, and video games (that really helped the time go by!). I am
happy that we are able to have this hotel room to refresh before our
next flight! We are going to go downstairs and have some pizza in a
few minutes and then get a few hours of sleep before we have our
flight in the morning to Addis.

Yay!
We're planning to fly Emirates as well with a Dubai stopover. Shower, sleep, start adjusting your body clock--then a short flight down to Addis Ababa! Have a great trip! So excited for you!

YAHOO!!!! I will see you SOON!! Emirates was going to be a lot more expensive for us, but it does sound like a nice airline. :)

Praying for your safe return!!! You aren't that far away generally speaking...after you get settled back in (and we are done with our camp season) we should get together! That is if you don't mind 9 people coming over..of course we could always meet somewhere too! Blessings & safe travels!!!!!!!
