    I know, I know, putting a travel guide on Goodreads is just bizarre, but the first few chapters of this gem on Ethiopian customs, Ethiopian food and history, how to be a respectful traveler, the shock of visiting developing nations are the best I ve seen in a travel guide.

    Another crapy guide book from Bradt, which only survives as a publisher because it fills gaps It has been a while since I decided to avoid Bradt guides but this time I decided to go ahead and buy to the positive reviews.Bad idea I was tricked This is as bad as the other Bradt To give just two examples a selection of itineraries, which is one of the most valuable of a book of this kind is nowhere to be seen, for some mysterious reason The volume has about 800 pages and still, a meager eight pages are dedicated to Adis, apart from the listings The same number as the pages containing maps of the city By the way, dont expect hints on how to get to the few places considered good enough to be mentioned in these pages.

    A highly thorough read about everything Ethiopia It is getting us very excited about our travel there sometime this spring or summer I like that the author spent 5 months there going to every region, every hotel, every camp site, taking every form of transportation I like that he grew up in South Africa and has written guides for Zimbabwe, Rwanda, and a few other African countries, and is able to draw from his experiences as a well African traveled person I appreciated his reflections on how to bridge cultural gaps, deal with feelings of guilt when faced with extreme poverty, how he thinks about giving money to beggars, on how tourism affects the culture, how to think about haggling sometimes it s ok, sometimes it s disrespectful He admits that everyone has as different perspective but offered his own.I like that he included snippets of other travelers letters about things they experienced there that shed light on things they learned in their travels Like what inconveniences they had to deal with, and things that made their trip better, etc I am sad that this one was published in 2005, and since there has been an even updated version and I didn t realize that when I bought this Wish I had the 2008 version I would recommend this to anyone thinking about traveling in Ethiopia.

    I primarily read novels so it seems odd to be rating a travel guide, but this was fabulous I have a WIP set in Ethiopia for half of the book and research online could get a little overwhelming Enter a travel guide, which has been utterly invaluable, covering not only customs, languages, wildlife, and locations, but details about hotels, costs, etc My copy is covered in mini Post It notes and I ve referred back to it many times during revisions I will definitely be keeping in mind Bradt guides for future international settings when writing or certainly if travelling is ever in the cards for me.

    More than a tourist guide book, about half of this book is devoted to background information about Ethiopia geography, history, climate, government and politics, economy, culture, language, religion There is a mini guide book on natural history followed by another 500 pages of traditional travel guide book complete with maps and color pictures and journal excerpts from historic travel writers Not your usual pocket guide Makes me want to return to see where I lived and worked for two tumultuous years, 1975 77.

    Ethiopia is a huge and lovely place that can be confusing to a first time visitor This books provides valuable background to approaching the language, history and day to day culture from a Euro American perspective.
