Recent History of Ethiopia
Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that has never been colonized by outsiders. Although Italy tried its best to get over, Ethiopians stood and fought for their country!
They joined the Communist countries for about twenty years and then changed their path.
Although they are improving, Ethiopia is not a democracy yet!
People in Ethiopia
People the strength of this country. Ethiopia is the 2nd most populous African country, after Nigeria with more than 112 million people. The diversity would blow your mind! There is over 80 different ethnicity in Ethiopia and all three Abrahamic religions exist. more than %60 are Christian, %30 Muslim and they even have a Jewish population. Because of the circumstances, most Ethiopian Jews are living in Israel now.
You can find a lot of tribes that have no communication with the outside world, and modern cities at the same time! I mean, Ethiopia is nothing like you ever imagined!
Back to the title! The Ethiopians calendar is different from us and it’s 8 years behind constantly! For example, It’s 2012 in Ethiopia now!
What to do in Ethiopia

This was very interesting. Didn’t know about the calendar. Lovely photos. I remember about Italy trying to annex the country in an effort to expand the Roman Empire.
Right! You have a good memory then! (Knock on wood)
Thank you for your comment! 😊
🙂 Yes, knock on wood.
The pictures are amazing, and so like my people the Karamojong of Uganda. Ethiopia and Malawi are my next African countries to visit, but ever since you educated us about Tunisia, it too is on my list now. We will see! Keep doing what you do!
They all are beautiful countries to visit! Tunisia’s vibe is different from Ethiopia and Malawi.
Even though Tunisia is in north Africa, It’s more of a European feeling.
Hope you get to visit them all soon! 😊
