In ET now.
16 stopover. ET airlines gave me a free hotel and visa.
There is active chabad here.
FYI ET airlines will not short check a bag to ADD, even on a 16 hour stopover. They're worried I'm doing Hidden city

I started having Internet access regularly, I couldnt really do it from the South african Bush.
I think things are more collected and organized if I write them later.
I have a 3.5 day train ride to write a TR ;)

Does anyone have info besides for a short layover?
I am thinking of stopping in ADD for 2-3 days and want to know if there is anything to do and if it is doable with a 1.5 year old baby.

Anyone have experience? Shabbos? Day trips? Hiring a driver?
Thanks!

Anyone been recently to Ethiopia?
How much and how difficult is to get a local sim card, and is Google Voice / WhatsApp calling blocked?
