We are super excited to have Team 3 headed to Ethiopia!
We began our journey with the Nashville bunch, above, heading to Washington to meet up with the rest of the group. I'm Kelly Putty (left, above), and I will be leading the next two Ordinary Hero Ethiopia teams! Looking forward to beginning this journey with this awesome, young bunch!
Once to Washington, we gathered all our luggage and boarded the shuttle over to the hotel...which is always an experience!
We had an awesome shuttle driver that was determined to fit all 9 of us into the shuttle WITH all our 20 something bags! The team is doing great just rolling with it. It creates team bonding, ha!
The next morning, 3 shuttles later, we made our way with the overnight group and the luggage, back to the airport and got everyone all checked in. Having Michael Venable as the only guy in this part of the group really flagged him for manual labor. :-) Poor guy!
