Arriving at the airport of Addis Abeba, i got the visa quite fast for $ 20, since it was very early i walked to the place i had booked and did then some sightseeing. Later i did try to get a visa for Djibuti, since that embassy was rather unfriendly i left without. Getting around Addis Ababa is quite easy by minibuses (there are now also 2 light rail lines).
I did feel quite save walking around Addis Ababa, but at one point 2 guy's did try to pickpocket me, as they where rather unprofessional that was not a problem.
The food in Ethiopia is excellent and very different to other food.
Was then going by bus to Harar.
