Idk if already shared here bt am really pleasantly suprised by the amount of ground (and first floor) retail space as well as sidewalks in the satellite towns - something public housing drives in many SSA countries get wrong creating retail and food deserts with residents having to commute even for the most basic needs
Today was the 125th celebration of the Adwa victory. There were a lot more people out than previous years. Radio and TV programs for the past four weeks were talking about it non-stop. Interestingly, Atse Minilik's and Etege Taitu's names were banned by woyane from being mentioned on TV and radio. Maybe not surprising since Meles never mentioned Ethiopia by name. It was always "አገሪቱ". There were a lot of ፈረሰኞች from surroundings of Addis. Most were holding the Ethiopian flag with the star on it. Interesting to note though, there were none of those in Adwa አደባባይ which had the plain tri-color or the one with the moa ሞዐ አንበሳ. Anyway Enjoy some pics
