**Ethiopia**

I found a, countrywide, variety of beautiful photos of Ethiopia but some are, unfortunately, not the best quality and others are a little small but still worth the post I hope.

Another best kept secret of Africa. Too bad the stigma of unrest and violence won't make it easy for this country to attract tourists. Very beautiful and exotic though.

Fantastic!
I'd love to visit East Africa - especially places like Ethiopia and places further south like Kenya and Tanzania

I too would love to visit more places in Africa. I think it's such an understated natural beauty that deserves more public recognition and appreciation.

Racial and cultural diversity

Ethiopia is a incredibley racially and culturally diverse. From the most beautiful, velvety black skin, to the lighter more European features, from city dwellers to villagers....All is Ethiopia. And although some may not like this, I include all this region of Africa as one family... Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia...much love to all those of those regions to.

Lovely pictures! So interesting and diverse! How did you get around the countryside ... did you hire a car and driver, or did you use local transportation like busses and/or trains?

Great pictures, Ethiopia is a very beautiful and underrated nation.

Politics aside (it IS occupying my country and I don't like that and the whole Ogaden issue), it's a very unique nation. I hope for the best for the PEOPLE. The development in Addis Ababa is great too.

Here in Melbourne, Australia we have many African migrants and many of them are from Addis Ababa who drive taxis. They talk very passionately about their homeland and I would love to visit one day. I think these pictures just proves that even more.

Thanks!!!!!

Ethiopia is pretty high in my list of places I want to visit in the next couple of years.

How is the infrastructure there? I'm not expecting paved roads everywhere of course, my question is rather if it would be possible to drive around the country in a rented jeep on your own.

Ethiopia has a very interesting culture and great landscapes, didn't somebody steal the Lalibela cross a few years ago?

I heard something about that too.

Love the design of the stone-carved church, BTW.
