I am a retired Brit living in Addis on my pension.. My wife and I have lived here for a total of 20 years, 1970 to 74, and 2002 to 2018. I did work for two of the local tour firms back in 2005 to 2007. It was 2007 when i first advised on Tripadvisor.
I do not own or work for or get commission from any hotel, guest house, restaurant, guide or tour company here!! Nor do I get paid by any guide book I may recommend, nor do I have shares in Ethiopian Airlines!!
One of my passions in retirement is to get accurate, helplful, up to date information on Ethiopia out to the outside world where many, indeed most of those born before 1970 have what I call a 1985 BBC image of Ethiopia.
