TravelPod Member ReviewsDamu Hotel Addis Ababa
The Damu Hotel is near the airport on a main road into Addis. The hotel was OK for the most part and the staff were pleasant. There is a restaurant attached that I did not use, but it seemed very popular.
i had a few issues - I need light to read and I wasn't able to get my bed lamp replaced until my second day there. I was annoyed that they did not allow me to take their airport shuttle to the airport to retrieve my lost bag and set me up for what I felt was an expensive taxi ride back to the airport that is 1.5 km from the hotel according to their cards....even though I didn't use the airport shuttle to or from the hotel during my stay.

... which we did and just force your way through. There was a great deal of noise and fuss as we passed through the metal detector but we said keep going and we got through. We weren't the only ones hungry and and in transit and worried about not getting back in.

Today I got to work and started the day off by going and watching two surgeries! I got scrubs on and bright orange shoes!! The first surgery I'm not sure i totally understood what was going on, but they had to break some bones and put in some pins to hold it in place! The second surgery was a child who used to have clubfoot, but had been casted (successful from what I could tell). ...
... Hospital, which was recently built in 2007. The hospital itself is gorgeous, and is extremely modern when compared to the hospitals I was exposed to in Uganda several years ago. The residents however tell me that Ayder is atypical for an Ethiopian Hospital, and most hospitals in the country are not nearly as nice. I am rotating on the general internal medicine wards and have gotten great exposure to tropical diseases that infrequently (if at all) occur in the ...
... plane on the tarmac when I landed in sweltering Gambela, one of the main refuge camp for the new humanitarian crisis in South Sudan is about 70 miles from Gambela, Ethiopia and this airport is used as the main supply point. Reading my guide book many months before my trip, the place had caught my eye as very interesting, authentic and a good place to launch a trip to the far west of Ethiopia.
I walked out of the little airport with no plans, hopped in the back of a pickup truck ...
... to go to the airport.
Adijo Etiopija - Kmalu na svidenje; sem se v mislih poslovila od te dežele, ki me je očarala in začarala. Zagotovo se še vrnem, in si ogledam še jug in jugovzhod te pisane dežele.
Goodbye Ethiopia - We see us again, soon ; that was my thought - I say goodbye to this country that I was charmed and enchanted by. Surely I come back and see also south and southeast of this colorful country.
