I stayped here for one night. The reason I have choosen this hotel, because of its location, overlook the Stelae Park and St. Mary of Zion.
The view is over-rated. I could not see anything because trees blocked the view.
Staff are not friendly.
Rooms are old and run down with broken funitures, saggy mattress, broken bathroom fixtures.
To make it worse, rooms here are over priced.
I guess, they don't care to please anyone at all!!!
If there is a ZERO, I would give them that.

... foul, misir wat, at two different restaurants, only to confuse the poor servers.
I found a café and had a stale pastry and a coffee, then found a juice bar and drank two avocado juices and called it a successful dinner.
I'd been warned a couple times that Shire is full of thieves, so I headed to bed after dinner for a cold shower and some RuPaul's Drag Race :D ...
... needed to go with him.
When I got in the bus I saw my backpack sprawled across the front seat.
I settled in beside an elderly lady and an elderly man- the worst combination.
Old people seem great for the bus- they don't speak a lot of English so at least you don't have to have 9 hours of awkward conversation with them, and they're small, but that's misleading.
They're old and they've earned all the space they want to ...
... we were welcomed and treated very warmly by the Aksum people. I can assume that is because Aksum's trade with the Mediterranean and East Indies is what has made this empire rich and powerful.
Just as in Alexandria, there is evidence all over the city of Europe's influence on their culture and architecture. There are Roman Catholic churches rising above the shacks and tents of the villagers, and I hear languages ...
