Scanned through the forum but couldnt find any fresh data.
Some sources quote it is getting increasignly difficult to achieve this, but I am not happy about posting my passport to an Embassy outside my country, and have no embassy of ET at home....
Any help much appreciated!!
When we were in Lalibela, we met a couple of young boys (15-16) who were guides for us on a hike. They were in school part-time, they go in the morning and then work in the afternoon. Next year they will go full-time so they need money / sponsorship to go to school as they won’t be able to work. The story is that their families are from outside Lalibela and they themselves live in rented rooms in town.
Is this a scam or for real? Apologies if this is a stupid question but I’d like to help…
Hi guys n gals !
Have a standing invitation to visit Lodwar and since im a serious birder the badlands of the Omorate n norther Kenya is tempting. I know there is traffic from Kenya to the Omorate (pickups) so there must be traffic returning too. An israeli i met in Nairobi walked (illegaly) overland towards Lodwar but i do not have his military training. There is a border crossing around Todenyang. Repeated mails to Kenyan immigrations unsurprisingly doesnt yield anything.
I'm going to be in Ethiopia from 9th - 17th May off back of work trip. Want to go hiking in Simiens most likely 11-16th, planning to walk for approx 4 days. Have bought a book, but looks like Guide will be necessary. Does anyone want to come with me and split the costs? Woman, late 30s, not too annoying. Have travelled and walked quite a lot before so relatively fit and un-whiney. Will prob have to go from Gondar, that's what everyone seems to say.
I posted this question abouth a month ago and no replyes at all.
So I give it another try: any info about taking Amharic class/ course in Addis.
I would appreciate info about any level of instruction available!
Currently travelling solo in Northern Ethiopia. Will be back in Addis in a few days, then will have a week left to see some other parts of the country- maybe Harar, or some of the Southern lakes...I'm open to suggestions! If anyone's looking for a travel companion to share costs (and hassle!) please message me.
Please I need your help:
Where celebration: Where is the best to see Meskel celebrations: In Gondar, Addis Abeba or Lalibella?
When is the main celebration the 27 of September in the night or 28 in the early morning??
Thanks, eL MUCHILERO
