Ethiopia, From Worst to First

by brian on December 30, 2008

Ethiopia started out great, turned sour for a moment and then was fantastic the rest of the way.

While in Cape Town I made reservations at a place in Addis Ababa that was highly rated.

At least I THOUGHT I made reservations…

I was suppose to reply to the confirmation email I received. I glanced through the email and didn’t read it completely, thinking it was confirmed.

When I got to the airport, the guest house was suppose to pick me up. When they didn’t show I had to take a taxi there.

Where they were surprised to see me, because they gave my room away when I didn’t respond to the email.

Completely my fault. I didn’t read the whole email.

But it turned out to be the best thing that happened to me….
