The city tour that Muluken offered us was very interesting. He picked us from the hotel in a car with a driver, Bire. Both speak English and know the city very well. We visited the Merkato, the largest market in Africa, passed by the Ethnological museum that was residence of emperor Haile Selassie, saw the Holy Trinity Cathedral, drove around the city to see historical monuments like Lion of Juda, The Martyrs Memorial and Meskel Square; went to Mt Entoto to have a panoramic view of the city. Wonderful day
