Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
I was there to visit a friend and started the trip with visiting Mercato in Addis Ababa that it is said to be Africa's largest market but after the initial excitement I realized that a whole lot of the products sold there are imports from China. As a consequence i focused more on local culinary specialties and amazing coffee.
I got the chance to visit a workshop for traditional fabrics and garments and other traditional products . Seeing the master weavers in action was very impressive - weaving these multicolored geometric patterns takes massive skills.
