Visit Ethiopia

As the son of Ethiopian immigrants, I can’t help but but be happy when I see positive news coming from Ethiopia. Such news is a welcomed departure from the days when Ethiopia was only associated with poverty, famine, war, corruption, disease, etc.– the stereotypical ills with which Western media tends to narrowly relegate much of Africa to.

Now it seems as though Ethiopia is coming to be known for its beautiful landscapes, national parks, national cuisine, ancient historical sites, and more.

You don’t need to take my word for it, just check out one one of the leading travel guidebooks, Rough Guides, and their 2015 People’s Choice Poll for top 10 destination for 2015, which include the United Kingdom, Iceland, Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, Ireland, Greece, Turkey, and Ethiopia, ranked at number 7 on the list.
