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 …

Dubai to Ethiopia

... in the St Mary of Zion church in Axum, and one solitary monk watches over the Ark, never leaving the church. Whether this is true or not no-one knows for sure. Our time here coincided with Palm Sunday celebrations, and pilgrims from all over have flocked here to worship and watch the Saturday procession. This wended its way down the main street, with participants happy and loud, and priests in their most colourful vestments.


Going to Market

... was intriguing watching this double act, the cheeky one with the motor mouth and the quiet one with the motor skills.

The journey seemed to take almost an hour but I'm not sure, I probably could've walked faster as most of the time was spent sat still in traffic. At least the time gave me a chance to people watch and notice the abundance of stickers on the bus window depicting Christ in various situations.

... thought that this was the plane's wing light reflecting down but as the event continued in an irregular pattern even after we were several miles away from the cloud I realised that I was witnessing a thunder storm from above.

Ringside seats for a natural light show got me in the mood for a dry croissant and luckily Ethiopian Airlines read my mind, breakfast was served as haphazardly as I've ...

    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.
