They say you can never be the same once you have seen the sun /moon shine from the other side.

38000 ft above, 1hr 45minutes, that’s how long it took to land in Ethiopia where problems of going natural, gaining volume and hair growth all together are a thing of the past. So for a minute I was caught up between the hair and the length.

With quite a number of restaurants in Nairobi, I have never been able to have  a taste of the cuisine and  a trip to Ethiopia would not be complete if I didn’t eat Anjera. Tt (Ethiopian pal ),made sure that I got a special Anjera treat.

I have always known that Ethiopians have their own Calendar and the Orthodox Church but what I didn’t know is that thy calendar has 13 months with each month having 30 days. I was also made to understand that according to their calendar they are in 2008 and their time is also not the same.

I  Couldn’t shake off the, ‘welcome home’ remarks that I kept on getting while visiting different places, I guess it’s because the city is home to the African Union Headquarters.

If  any of you ever visits Addis Ababa, bear in  mind that your phone will be off the minute you land , so let it not take you by surprise  and make sure you enjoy.

  1. Yes dear. The only thing I found challenging was speaking Amharic which is quite tricky. Thank you :-*

  2. They are in 2008? All the months have 30 days? They have 13 months? This calendar ain’t right Elle, lol! I love the official outfit and the leather dress, you must have had a blast experiencing their beauty and different cuisines.
