We stopped by the Lufthansa office to verify our return tickets home (as was advised) and to see if we could get the bassinet seats. It was a long wait. We then stopped for lunch at Blue Tops and headed out to the Gladney government orphange tours so that my mom and MIL could see them. Such an emotional sight no matter how many times you see it.

A common sight to see in the middle of the road
The boys orphanage sleeping area
We went to the Boston Day spa to get a massage :) We then headed over to the Tropical Gardens area for a craft bazaar. (Travis gladney staff member let us know about it...only open certain times). There were soo many white people there that it didn't feel like you were in Ethiopia. They even had some Christmas music playing. There were amazing crafts..one of the best shopping experiences. I got some blankets, pillows, t-shirts...We then had lunch at Antiqua and stayed in that night playing cards

We went to the Sheraton for a day of relaxation :) Spent most of the day laying by the pool and soaking in the rays. Poor Venita was sick and stayed in.
Our Ethiopian swimsuits :)
