Today we travelled to Hawassa to stay in a hotel for a night.
On the way we stopped for a coffee at the Haile resort owned by the famous Ethiopian Olympic runner Haile Gebrselassie..
As we were leaving and while my dad was looking at Haile's trophy, a man walked into the hotel and guess who it was? It was Haile Gebrselassie !!
I met Haile five years ago when he won the Melbourne marathon, and he remembered having his photo taken with the Ethiopian kids on stage.
He was very nice and he insisted on taking 2 photos! I felt a little bit nervous and at the same time i felt very excited meeting him.
