I first visited Ethiopia in 1970 and spent six weeks exploring the country. It made a vivid impression on me because it is a fascinating country, with ancient historical obelisks, underground churches, a rich cultural heritage, and beautiful scenery.
The Blue Nile Falls featured as our cover picture in the last edition, with a weird-looking me glaring into the camera. This edition features a Coptic priest with an ancient crown.
With this edition, we have added a double-up map of Eritrea on the reverse side. The two countries are related, although prickly with each other. Most people combine a trip to Eritrea with a visit to Ethiopia.
The Eritrea map will continue to be marketed separately.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
