Great pics...

Addis Ababa is a very interesting place...I have a cousin who went there (transferring to go to the UAE) for a while....coming from Somalia, he was shocked...he said it was the most beautiful and modern city that he ever went to...

For Mogadishu, Addis is a model.

I visited Ethiopia in 97 and enjoyed every moment of it. It seems a lot cleaner....

1st Question: Is that hebrew on the storesign?

2nd Question: Are the pictures photoshopped? Because they look awesome!

Looks like the Ge'ez/Ethiopic alphabet.

It could be photoshopped or it was taken during sunbreak of a rainy day.

That's Amharic/Ethiopic on the sign. Almost all signs in Addis Ababa are in Amharic and English.
