My first glimpse of the 'real' Africa, Ethiopia was all I had hoped and feared it to be: enchanting and demanding, freezing and scorching, beautiful and ugly. It was a fascinating one and a half months trip to some of the most interesting, curious and alien locations I've seen, but also held some of the most bewildering and confusing experiences I've had so far. I was lucky enough to meet true friends, to sense something different and to feel the true Africa.
