Addis Ababa is the capital and largest city of Ethiopia. It had a population of 3.4 million in 2007 and it is growing very rapidly like many African cities.
If you walk along the road from Meskel Square to Sidest Kilo, you'll probably find it quite entertaining and interesting.
You'll see the Africa Hall, the palaces and the Parliament building, the Hilton Hotel, the marvellous architectural adventure of a building hosting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Sheraton Hotel, the first modern school (which Emperor Menelik II built in the 1880s), the Trinity Orthodox cathedral, the National Museum, and the Addis Ababa University (which hosts a former palace and museum).
