Addis Ababa happens to be the third highest capital in the world after La Paz, Bolivia, and Quito, Ecuador. Situated at 7,600 feet above sea level, it has cool evenings and pleasant days in the dry season and mostly cool and damp days in the rainy season. Addis Ababa also is the seat of the African Union and a home to a lot of diplomatic missions including the United Nations Economic Commission to Africa. As the country has a diverse population with a lot of different ethnic groups, one would find almost all these people groups in the capital.

My people are very known for there hospitality, we have above eighty thousand ethnic groups. We all live in harmony, peace and tranquility. Any one will fit right in, but it would be beneficial if they learn our mother tongue (Amharic), cause it makes it much easier to move around.

Addis Ababa is the biggest city in Ethiopia and home to the HQ of the African Union (AU). It’s often called the capital of the continent. The people come from different parts of Ethiopia making the city diverse and the only place in the country where almost all of the 80+ languages are spoken.

Addis Ababa is one of the most diverse places on earth. In Addis there a lot of languages spoken like Amharic, English, Oromo, etc, and diverse religions like Protestants, Catholics, and Muslims. And mostly our people are so united we do things together.
