So.. The time has come and our last day has arrived. The trip has flew and I don't think anyone is ready to leave. We had lunch in Debre Zeit then began the journey back into Addis Ababa. As per usual.. The journey was something else - mental traffic, animals strolling around the motorways. We stopped off at a famous coffee shop and most of the team bought some coffee beans to bring home.
We then went to the farewell dinner - were we met Derege and Desere who is the director of Habitat in Ethiopia. Everyone said a few words and we all said our thank you's. Zee gave us all a little bird to signify our time in Ethiopia. When it was time to leave everyone was emotional - Desere made sure we were aware that we have made a difference - and to spread the word about Habitat when we get home.
We went to the airport and started the long journey home - myself Aimee and Eve have stopped over in Istanbul for a few nights - so more will be added to the blog when I get home. The rest of the team have arrived home safely and we are all looking forward to the reunion to fully reflect on our amazing build in Ethiopia. Until then.. Chow.
