From one of the dirtiest cities in the world AA has become one of the top ten must see cities in the world is a great achievment. Everyone in Addis has to congratulate himself. This kind of advertisment will bring millions of tourists and dollars in the country.

So I ask you friends, what more can we do to make Addis more atrractive?

On my part I suggest we should plant more colorful trees like Cheryblossoms and build more lavatories arround the city. We should also clean the city well and punish anyone who throw trash or urinate on the streets.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I complitly agree that we plants plenty of trees and water them and protect them so that they will grow.Gov ernment wasted a lot of money planting trees but doesnot protect them and they perish.
Can we have lots of latrine for public and we will have a day when we will not see people holdingtheir genital organs and urinate infron of the public.Can we get a mayer working for that than seating in ofice nd ejoy cascades of meetings?

Ethiopic are the girls and society going to me more open to foreighn guys? Are there still girls walking around the ECA building looking for handouts from Diplomats? Are there still children running after forighners for money?

I saw a recent report about addis. There is prostitutes, gangs, and doo-doo in the streets. Even the people eat from local dump. Does not sound like appealing place

how come you blindly believe such surveys ? i would take that with a grain of salt.
that said addis abeba has perhaps the best weather compared to anywhere. it is always between 10 - 25 C. the city has the best food.you find nowhere food that is so tasty,if that is meat,egg,chicken,milk,yogurt,c heese,banana,tea and last but not least coffee.strangely you dont hear western diplomats appreciating that,both weather and food, although theirs is worse.
addis abeba is also dirt cheap for westerners,yet you hear them complaining about prices for hotels and the likes. a good reason addis abeba is chosen is because it is dirt cheap,as they said you get more value for money.

From what I have seen in the Netherlands the trees are grown somewhere else and replanted at the place they want. It is not because people will cut it or urinate on it but of the fact that it takes a long time for a tree to grow.

Don't you have anything els to do than cursing Ethiopians under different names from Virginia? Is it jelousy? How many time can we tell you that we don't want you arround us? I thought you are suppose to be independent country but we don't see it from you guys, you stalking us 24/7. What kind of balager are you? I am tired of you Eritreans changing every subject to insult-forums whether it is here or on Youtube. You must be born evil as Satan.
