Ethiopia, here we come!!!

Our China Airlines flight arrived at Hong Kong International Airport at 9:30pm, and finally we are only 5 hours away from the flight to our final destination—Ethiopia. Although it’s a long flight, all ambassadors are excited and energetic.

Getting our boarding passes means we are a step closer to our destination and we excitedly took a picture of all them together. Can you see that they’re designed with red, yellow and green—the main colors of Ethiopia’s national flag!

After a flight of almost 10 hours and 9000 km, we are about to land in Ethiopia. Do you see that landscape composed of plateau like puzzle pieces and special rocks? It’s unbelievable. We really are here.
