Cultural dinner and dance
Barbara_D, Dec 2019
First I must thank my tour guide Samuel! He made my first few hours/first night in Addis Ababa so welcoming! He was punctual in his arrival and even took me first to experience having local coffee on the street. From there we went to the restaurant. He made sure I got a taste of the honey wine and educated me on the local foods and proper way to consume them. The local dance show was simply amazing!! Great tour and dinner!
