Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Though Addis Ababa is a large city complete with traffic and urban sprawl, cars still have to make way for shepherds herding their flocks across the road.Many call it the capital of Africa because the African Union is headquartered here (all but one of Africa’s 57 countries belong to the AU).
Addis Ababa has the largest market in Africa, incredible cathedrals, churches, and mosques, and the museum that is home to Lucy, the oldest known humanoid in the world.
For the surrounding locals, the city is a magical place whose streets are paved with gold, for visitors, it’s the perfect blend of traditional and modern Ethiopia.
