The longest I have ever stayed away from my family was four days shy of a month when I traveled to Zambia, Tanzania, and South Africa last October. This trip to Ethiopia, in comparison, was nothing close to that! I was only there for little over two weeks. Now I am home and getting back into the groove of things.
Before getting home I spent two days in Washington. It was nice getting into DC after a 15 hour flight from Addis. I always love going through customs and hearing the officer say, “Welcome home.” As much as I love traveling the world, I also love coming home. There’s nothing like it!
