“How can it be that a country with such outstanding historical and cultural attractions, remains so little known? How can it be that a country with such remarkable natural attractions remains so little visited?
It seems that Ethiopia still has an image problem. Pigeonholed as a land of desert, famine and war, misconceptions are so rife that Ethiopian Airlines – one of Africa’s most successful commercial airlines – regularly fields inquiries as to whether its passengers will get anything to eat on their planes!
Poor it may be materially, but the fact remains that Ethiopia boasts outstanding historical and natural wealth. In historical terms, it has the longest archaeological record of any country on Earth; in religious terms, it was only the second country in the West to adopt Christianity, and in natural terms, it boasts an exception number of endemic species and more birds than any country on the continent except South Africa …” Source: Lonely Planet Ethiopia & Eritrea, by Jean-Bernard Carillet & Frances Linzee Gordon
We believe these words can be shared by many Ethiopians, but nicely put forward by the Lonely planet. We hope to tell you more about this beautiful country, as we merely scratched the surface of what Ethiopia has to offer. Stay tuned, there are more to come!
