I am friends with quite a few people of Ethiopian and Eritrean origin. The Washington DC area has an abundance of people of these nationalities. Great culture and food.

I'm this close to going there on a trip in the near future, but the downside is that I'd just be stuck in Addis, a big chaotic city, with no place else worth visiting that you can get to in a whole day's travel. I'd also want to visit Djibouti and Hargeisa, but there are visa hassles, unless you fly to both of them. And I don't think you can get over to Yemen at all now, nor to Eritrea.

Do you live there ?
Nope, I am an American man, but my wife is Ethiopian. I was there for 9 months straight in 2014 though

You can ask me any questions on here or through DM about it. I can tell you anything you want to know (that I know too) about Addis as I was there for 9 months last year .

You got one thing right, it is chaotic, but a safe chaotic that is .

Yes I realised after I posted the Brits don't really know the difference between the 2 and are generalised into the same group there for the Somalis have given the ethepoians a bad name if you see where I'm coming from Davy?

But I actually do know the difference and have worked in building sites where they are labourers traffic marshals etc and have a laugh

So I apologise to anyone reading for being to forth coming
