We made it to Dubai! The plane trip was really easy especially considering the plane was barely full. I think everyone had a row to themselves almost. It was really nice and we got a lot of sleep. As soon as we got on the plane we adjusted to Ethiopia time. We were hoping to stay awake until 2 p.m. Phoenix time (midnight in Ethiopia) and then fall asleep for the "night". Considering we barely go any sleep the night before (45 minutes), I think we lasted until 1 p.m. and fell asleep for over 5 hours. Not too long after that, Sabrina slept another 3 hours and Adam slept 1 1/2. We arrived in Dubai mid-afternoon and that is what it felt like to us.

After getting to the hotel, we decided to take a city tour that our travel agent recommended. It was great! We were able to see the entire city in 2 hours. It was really interesting to learn how fast Dubai has grown. I think the guide said that in 39 years Dubai went from camel to Cadillac.

After the tour, we had dinner at the hotel and now we are getting ready to go to bed. Tomorrow morning our flight leaves at 8:30 to head to Addis Abada!!!!!! I really, really hope that we can meet Allie in the afternoon.
