with a couple of days stop-over in Addis first of all to visit with a friend who worked there, Addis is however just another large African capital with not much to offer. The suburbs are not well lit as electricity is scars. We stayed at the famous heritage hotel Taitu in Addis. The only drawback being it was located right in the middle of the red light district of Addis. This place, founded back in late 1800 was partly destroyed by a fire a year ago. We continued by taking a flight up to the north and the UNESCO world heritage - Lalibela. These amazing churches had been dug out of the rocks in the ground. Nice and cool up at 2000 meters level. This was a real treat to see.
