>We’ve landed in Dubai

We made it to Dubai, and after a two hour cab adventure we arrived safely at our cousins in Abu Dhabi. It is always interesting to be in a new culture. My only reference to Middle East culture has been the news and movies and it is really surreal to be in the middle of the real thing. I am trying to get Kate to switch her wardrobe to all abaya’s but she isn’t going for it.

When we were in the security line in London the guy in front of us asked us where we were going. When we responded the we were going to Ethiopia he told us that he was Ethiopian. He was really excited about our adoption and told us how he was a youth pastor in Houston. It was really cool and after he left Kate and I both commented on how he looked like an older version of Tek. (and no, we don’t think all Ethiopians look alike)
