Just a quick post to let you all know that we made it safely to Ethiopia. Interestingly our direct flight from Cleveland to Frankfort included changing planes at Newark. Then our direct flight from Frankfort to Addis included a stop in Khartoum. Other than extending the travel time there were no other problems.
Turns out Y can charm the Lufthansa stewardesses by telling them Danke! :)
Well, we are sitting in the lobby of our hotel waiting to go see S. Signing off for now.
