Everything has gone so well here in Ethiopia until today. Mark and I headed to the airport ready to go home. We checked in, got our tickets and breezed through customs. We were one gate away from our plane when disaster struck. Immigration stopped us.
We applied for a 30 day visa since our trip was only 10 days long. We listed our arrival and departure dates, but our visa expired 5 days too early.
Because it’s a Sunday, we’re stuck here until the Immigration office opens Monday morning.
I’ve never felt so trapped in my life. Home feels so far away.
