Here are some last thoughts from Sian on leaving Ethiopia. Even though I don't often update this blog, I thought it might be a good last post here of our time in Ethiopia. Ethiopia, I won’t miss queueing at 5 or more different windows every time I want to process any paperwork.

Unfortunately, before I could remove the test blogs, the internet went down. No big deal, this is a regular occurrence, usually that just means waiting a few hours or going home to try again there.
