Hi there,

I am looking for accomodation for 5 people in Adama (Nazret) for 3 weeks in June. We are on an extremely tight budget and any recommendations for places to stay would be much appreciated, as the cheapest I can find online now is about 30 dollars a night! Thanks :)

Visas

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to address mail so that it can be received at the Africa Hotel in Axum? I need to send them something but all I can find are directions to find the place in person. Also, anything else I should know about sending mail (a letter and a few photographs) to Ethiopia, except that it may take a long time...? Thanks.
