        Go to Ethiopia

        The New York Times has a very interesting article on Ethiopia and tourism here. Check out the photo slide show while you’re at it.

        And it is now possible to travel across Ethiopia with some degree of comfort. Abercrombie & Kent, the Kenya-based safari specialist, this month is starting a guided tour through Ethiopia’s historic Christian route: Aksum, Lalibela, Lake Tana and Gonder. But those who want to venture on their own will discover that Ethiopia is reasonably well set up for independent exploring. They will find a proud, if bedraggled country with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and a unique sense of its identity — shaped in part, by Ethiopia’s stubborn refusal to submit to Western colonizers.

        Meskel Square offers a survival guide to deal with unpleasant encounters on the streets of Ethiopia. It is that simple, so go see the country.
