Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

Hey guys! Been busy travelling hence my silence. I recently visited Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for work , which was exciting as I have always wanted to visit this beautiful country. 
 I stayed at the lovely Saro-Maria Hotel, which is conveniently 10 minutes away from the airport. I was caught up with work but managed to meet a few friends and visit the museum while I was there. Just a few pictures.

Stunning pencil portraits of the early man.

 The first car in Ethiopia.

For all coffee lovers out there, you have to buy Ethiopian coffee! 
Delectable treats....
I love collecting postcards whenever I travel and I love those that portray women doing everyday activities. The one below was my favourite. 
Top 5 Suggestions:

1. Visit the National Museum, Entoto Hill {or any other historical/ cultural site}
2. Enjoy their local cuisine {Wat with injera etc.}
3. Shop in the local markets {For traditional woven cotton fabrics, outfits, scarves etc.}
4. Visit a coffee house and get to sample different varieties of coffee.
5. Buy a souvenir! {E.g. fridge magnets, postcards etc.}

Have a productive week ahead!
