ethiopia? why on earth would you go there..?

This was the common response I received from people in Australia after telling them I was moving to Ethiopia. And it seems I’m not the only one who gets this kind of response. I’ve had some good friends from home recently visit and they too were faced with the same question. The thing is not many people know much about Ethiopia. Which led me to make the below list of things you definitely wouldn’t want to come to Ethiopia and see:
It’s not like Ethiopia knows how to make damn good coffee:
(it is the birthplace of coffee after all)
The tea is just as bad (so full of spices):
And the music scene is just so boring:
Actually the nightlife in Addis is pretty lack luster:

Foodwise – there’s way too much choice for a vegetarian:
And the restaurants – so common:

Then there’s the scenery – don’t get me started on the scenery – it’s clearly terrible:imagehudad1simiens2simiens4The churches are pretty standard:
And so inaccessible – they’re either carved out of rock underground or hidden in a cave at the very highest point on top of some very steep mountains:
Decorated with a few paintings here and there:church3Oh and the people don’t smile much:

The endemic animals aren’t that interesting either:

The basket weaving needs a bit more colour:

There is nothing cool about an active volcano and bubbling lava pit:

Or floating about on the most buoyant salt lake around:
saltlakeSulphur lakes are just so dull:
Speaking of lakes, this land locked countrys’ lakes are so uninspiring:

Particularly the hippos that lurk about:hippo
The accommodation around the country is pretty much same same as everywhere:

And notorious for bad views:
The hiking is just as bad (so many wild flowers on the path):

So why on earth would you go to Ethiopia!
