Africa 2012 - South Africa, Addis Ababa, Nairobi via FRA and ZRH

27 Nov 2012 to 17 Dec 2012

A trip through Africa that included stops in South Africa, Ethiopia and Kenya. The trip also included stops in Frankfurt and Zurich; however, only Frankfurt yielded some special colors.

One of the highlights of the trip was my first flight on the Boeing 787 on Ethiopian Airlines from JNB to ADD. The 787 was quite a surprise since a 767 was shown as the operating equipment!

In Kenya photography at the airport is quite difficult. Most of the photos are highly cropped.
