EthiopiŽ : Prijzen en aanbevelingen

Misschien niet de meest boeiende blog om te lezen op deze site. Maar wel aardig om de  verschillende landen die we aan doen later te kunnen vergelijken. Hieronder een opsomming van prijzen van de meest gekochte/gebruikte artikelen en "uitjes". Ondanks de "harde prijzen" blijft het natuurlijk een subjectief geheel want het verschil  in temperatuur (bier), service (hotel), kwaliteit (hotel en restaurant), snelheid (internet, busreis) laten we gemakshalve maar achterwege. Dus vergelijken moet met de nodige kantekeningen.

Addis Abeba: Raizel; koffiehuis/ restaurant. Vlak bij Piaza tegenover de Ethiopia Commercial bank. Misschien wel de beste burgers en sandwiches in Oost Afrika. Altijd druk en veel jong hip volk. Razend snelle bediening.

Sami Ethio Tours: Reisbureautje met vier goede (4x4) landcruisers en ervaren rustige chauffeurs/gidsen. Sami was nergens te beroerd voor. Hij haalde kosteloos in de late uurtjes onze vrienden van het vliegveld, deed samen met ons de inkopen en kwam als klap op de vuurpijl savonds de avond voor het vetrek van de 2e safari rond 11 uur in het hotel nadat hij had gehoord dat een van ons een beetje ziekig was. Absoluut bonafide en betrouwbaar. Een aanrader. Sami is ook te bereiken op 251 15 73 74 / 251 9 23 37 15. 

English summary: Recommendations for Ethiopia:

Addis Abeba
Raizel what;the eating/drinking place to be for young trendy students. Very good (ham and cheese) burgers and tuna sandwiches but also pastries. Enormously fast waiters. You think there is no table or chair available?, Just wait 5 seconds and your table is made available. Just in between the good looking ladies.
Where: opposite commercial bank (georgis branch) and 50 meter right from Herman Cafe and Restaurant.

Lalibela.
We experienced that booking a hotel in advance, also during (ethiopian) christmas was not necessary when your are on a tied budget. By telephone, 3 days in advance they (Fekreselam Hotel) told us that every place was occupied but that they could find a place for us but at a very high rate. They charged us 250 birr, which is ridiculous price. When we arrived at the hotel in Lalibela and did not make clear that we were the ones who made the reservations, They were able to offer it for 150 birr. Which was still ridiculous. So we looked for an other place, which we finally found. It wasn't really the best place we have seen but they only charged 35 birr. The place did not really have a name. But it looked very African if you know what I mean.
Where: Lalibela, coming from Blue Nile restaurant, walk to Northern group of churches, It's about 100 meter from Blue Nile Rest On the left site of the road.

Addis Ababa
Filwoha:
If you go for a bath at this place, take a good book since we experienced a waiting time from  more than 4 hours!  The massage was really great and we did not have to wait since reservations are possible at 510902/519100/519207. Qualified staff will do the hydro and oil massage. If you want the same sex "doing the massage to you" you will have to ask for it in advance.

Recommendable Travel Company in Addis Ababa:
We went twice with Sami Ethio tours. Ones to the south and ones to Harar and environment. They have 4 quite new 4x4 land cruisers. The drivers are very responsible and the equipment (tent, mattress, cooking gear, etc) they provided was good quality. Sami was even willing to pick our friends from the airport and bring them to our hotel (at night). Even the night before we left for the second safari one of us was sick, we called him that we might had to postpone our trip and within 15 minutes he came himself to check his condition. Really great guy with a good heart. We paid 120 dollar for 4 people each day.
