Museum Hopping in Addis

A travel blog entry by dmarek


I am not being as positive as I could be here. I slept a little fitfully...the time difference and the mosquito buzzing around. It was too late to ask for a mosquito coil and, of course, my repellent was all in my missing checked bag. I was up early and went to breakfast around 7:20. The hotel staff here really try hard. I got to eat on the …

Enroute to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

A travel blog entry by dmarek


Not much to tell so far. Started in Albany yesterday. My plane was delayed until after 4 pm. Consequently, I had to boogie when I got to Toronto and made it to the gate after the official departure time...just in time to join the huge line from the gate to the plane. My seat was on the aisle (not my favorite for overnight flights) way in the …

The day the lights went out.....

... I had spun my wheels for nothing. Most of the issues at the hospital, for example, are a systems issue – well beyond the control of a temporary lowly foreign surgeon. I have learned not to get so wound up.

Unfortunately 8 years later many of those systems issues still are in play. My final day operating here epitomize some of those difficulties.

First case – A young man with a nasty spinal cord tumor. Because of the ...

... by two premium companies but for most destinations they require three plus days advance booking in person at an office in the city of your departure. Naturally I soon realised that I was not going to see as much as I had planned in my five week visit.

The five hour trip to Awassa in the north of the Rift Valley on the shore of the large Awassa Lake was relatively painless. The coach was most full of middle class Ethiopians viewing ...

Day 1 in Ethiopia

... shawls, children standing in groups or running around together on the pavement, men in striped polos trying to maneuver taxis through the traffic of people, luggage, children and other cars, large birds we did not know swooping through the pale blue sky above... and in the distance, a combination of tall buildings and shorter ones, with tiny, unreadable signs and billboards pasted to many of them. After a wait of about 2 hours, our shuttle ...

    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.
