Ethiopian Airlines Celebrates International Women’s Day in Addis Ababa

Our first full day in Addis Ababa is revelatory with Ethiopia’s exciting capital city spreading out before us. All human life teems on the streets here and you have no doubt you’re in Africa with rich colour everywhere. Ethiopia has a vast population of 110 million souls and the national language is Amharic. Our guide from Ethiopian Holidays, Teka, is genial and simpatico and a mine of information. We have a spot of culture and history in the National Museum of Addis Ababa to marvel at the remains of Lucy, the first humanoid (3.3 million years old!), discovered in 1974 in Hadar, Ethiopia. Affectionately known as the Grandmother of Humanity, Lucy’s fossilised bones are on proud display. Off to Haile Selassie’s former palace (now part of the University) where we learn of his great legacy as former President of Ethiopia and a highly revered leader. His influence was far reaching and he was the founder of Rastafarianism. A gala evening in Skylight Hotel celebrates the all women functioned flight to operate from the continent of Africa to meet with European counterparts to show the power of women to the world. This historical flight will be operated by Ethiopian Airlines on Friday March 8th on Addis Ababa – Stockholm - Oslo route.
