Coffee in Addis Ababa

Travel

I’ve just embarked upon my fourth trip to East Africa and consider it a privilege to revisit one of my favorite regions on earth. I was invited to join a team from Bethel Seminary and to speak on leadership at two conferences in Northwestern Uganda.

Managing to book my flight over with an 8 hour layover in Addis Ababa I decided to look into my options for seeing the city. I learned that with a layover of less than 12 hours, one could purchase a hotel pass for $50 which would include a shuttle to the hotel, a meal, a place to rest and a shuttle back in time to catch my flight. All of this along with the opportunity to explore a city that I had never visited was too good to be true!
