It is a nation of north-oriental Africa very great, very various, very beautiful, very poor.
It almost has a surface 4 times greater than Italy, with an extremely various territory, constituted to a large extent from a separated healthy plateau in two sectors, that it raises it in the Simien Mountains and it is ploughed by important rivers, first among the whole Blue Nile, emissary of the splendid and vast Tana Lake.
Southeast toward Somalia, the highland degrades in very warm and damp lowlands. It doesn't have way out on the sea.
Addis Abeba (2 million and half of inhabitants) is one of the greatest markets in Africa; it is a strange city, that to a large extent it appears as an immense slum with hovels from the roofs of plate, around which the modern government buildings are raised.
The village of mountain of Lalibela, with its churches dug in the rock, is unique to the world!
