This is Africa: Arrival and First Impressions
That was a long series of flights! I took off from Washington Dulles around 10am and flew directly to Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia. This was a 12 hour flight. Addis Ababa is on the eastern side of Africa, and the first thing I noticed in the airport airport was the number of Chinese tourists. About half of the people there were African, then maybe 35% were Chinese, with some Indian, European, and Americans as the rest. Interesting!
So after about a 2 hour layover, I had to fly back to the western side of Africa to Abuja, Nigeria on a 4.5 hour flight. My body was so confused after all the back and forth, I didn’t even know what time or day it was when I arrived at Abuja because I had been through so many timezones!
