I just got back from a 2-week trip to Ethiopia yesterday. During my stay there, I visited a number of places, including restaurants, hotels, churches in Addis Ababa, Adama, Dire Dawa and Harar.

Although Dire Dawa and Harar were not in the original plan for my trip back home, it was faith that took me there. I must admit that I had more joy and happiness in Harar than I anticipated.

I was amazed by the religious tolerance and respect exhibited by the people of Harar, where Christians and Muslims lived side by side.

As for soccer, I watched the Ethiopian Coffee vs Mekelakeya and the Ethiopia vs Rwanda match for the CECAFA Challenge Cup on TV.

I will share my travel experience (including photos and videos) over the next several days.

Note: My trip was made possible by the assistance and cooperation of Ethiopian Airlines, which issued me free ticket.
