January 2016 

During a trip to the Timkat ceremonies (the Ethiopian Christmas) I have the opportunity to visit a part of this fascinating country. Ancient traditions and ceremonies. Breathtaking landscapes, especially in the Ethiopian Highlands near to the Great African Rift Valley where I undertook some hikes. Interesting wildlife for example the Gelada Apes and a paradise for bird watchers as well.

An the other hand it is one of the poorest countries of the world. People who work hard and still are not able to feed their families. And nontheless treat every guest like a king.
