Scoot on ~ what NOT to do in an Ethiopian Airport

Hi guys! So I’m in Ethiopia, as this title may have informed you XD This is a beautiful country so far, and I’m really staying in such a great place – I think – and it should be good!

So the flight here from Joburg was good, and the plane was actually really cool! And then we touched down. At the airport.

Now, who knows how to spell trouble?

Me. T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

Also spelled as ‘my dad is a diplomat and has a tendency of causing trouble because he thinks he’s really REALLY important and everyone gets annoyed by that very quickly’.

In brief, what happened was that we got to passport control, and some protocol officer called my dad to the front. And then lots of arguing. And then pushing and shoving. And then ‘we were here first!’. And this continued for about…50 minutes?

So what’s the moral of the story? STAY IN THE DARN QUEUE! I honestly would rather have just stood peacefully for half an hour than stand and get shoved around for the most part of an hour.

So look. When in Ethiopia? Stay as normal as possible. Think you’re special? YOU’RE NOT. Hate to be the one who dampens your spirits, but I guess things are different in an airport?

You know you’re still amazing and all that, I mean, look at you! 😉

So I’ll be sure to update later, day 2 of Ethiopia awaits!

All my love, all the time
-Scoot xx
