Sensational. Ethiopia is such a vivid country, rich in culture, the smell of incense, the music and sensual dancing of the shin-beth, the tasty food... the history, the spirituality, the tribal art... These are a few of my favourite Ethiopian experiences, also featured on my blog Diary of a Muzungu http://www.diaryofamuzungu.com

Gondar, Ethiopia
Gondar's Royal Enclosure houses an incongruous collection of medieval castles started by Emperor Fasilades in the early 17th century. The Italians hid out here when they briefly occupied Ethiopia in the late 1930s and early '40s and damage from...

Bahir Dar, Ethiopia
Lake Tana in Northern Ethiopia is a lovely place to spend a few days. In addition to being the source of the Blue Nile, it's home to a stunning array of holy places. If you make your way to the friendly town of Bahir Dar, you can hire a boat to...
