Meskel celebrations - the finding of the True Cross - Should signify the end of the rainy season as well but that did not work too well this year.
Hmmm...Should I buy an Audi or BMW? Perhaps not :-) School car park
The Sheraton's bird lifde is also wuite interesting. Ethiopia is a birder's paradise.
The yellow billed Kite is the most common large bird in Addis but there are many other interesting large birds. Will go hunting when we are settled and our car has arrived.
View from our apartment - looking North towards African Union HQ.
Addis Ababa Golf Club - 9 holes of "golf"! Actually it is a lot of fun - I am sure loads more photos to come.
Where we stay - The Diplomat Apartments in Old Airport. Much much nicer than poky Hilton apartments (And you do not get the Hilton Amoeba). Lots of homework too!
Most of the photos in this album are from our first trip out after much sickness to the Sheraton pool with our expert guide, Leyla's friend Roxy. The Sheraton is NICE!
Demonstrating to Ian that the Canon 5D MkII can take pictures in pretty low light.
