Legs 10 - 12: South Africa to Greece
These legs are still changing; but as it stands, I'll fly from South Africa to Addis Ababa (2193 nm), Ethiopia then to Egypt (1425 nm) and Greece (349 nm).
Ethiopia is a country full of cultural, religious, and natural sites and beauty. I've decided to spend two weeks touring and will probably only see a very small part of this country. Due to the planned late night arrival in Addis Ababa, the altitude of the airport, and the Rift Valley to the south, I've decided to overnight in Nairobi and continue on the Addis so that I can enjoy the Rift Valley by day and see the mountains and beauty of Addis Ababa from the air.
Egypt is also of much interest to me. I've long wanted to visit the pyramids and see the sphinxes. Hopefully, I'll get this opportunity.
Then on to Greece, which I visited once in 1989. I'm looking forward to visiting the islands and sipping Retsina, a favorite Greek wine.
