Very short time but want to see some of your city!!, Ethiopia - May 20 - May 20, 2018

Traveler: Stephen K. - Local specialist: Marco Degasper

Marco and his assistant were really quite perfect for what we were looking for---10 hour lay-over, we were met outside and taken care of by Marco, who showed off his Ethiopian pride by showing us a capsulated version of the vibrant city. We feel that he sensed what we were looking for and was generous with his knowledge and money---we had little cash, so Marco paid for some souvenir with his cash and we settled up at the end. We loved the enculturation of hanging with local people, coffee ceremonies, lunch, breakfast and the markets.

I highly recommend this kind of trip to anyone who has a brief time in Addis ESPECIALLY for the food and culture. Thank You to all.

Hi Stephen and Jeanne,
you had very short time, but I'm glad that you fully enjoyed it.
Hope to see you back in Ethiopia so that we can show you the rest of the country...
