Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
4 Kudos
Addis Ababa in less than 48 hours! Spent a long Israeli weekend in Addis, via Cairo. Got in around 4 am and left 2 days later. Checked out the National Museum of Ethiopia which is the home of Lucy, had some very delicious food, experienced a very different culture, hung out with Ethiopians and Kenyans, went to house party in Addis Ababa, walked a lot, hiked a lot, got ripped off by Taxi drivers cause they know you're tourist. Addis had the best climate, due to its elevation. Very pleasant. And it was sunny too! Stayed in Hotel Lobelia which is near Bole airport
