Addis Ababa, along with the rest of the world, is experiencing unprecedented growth, and with that, the inevitable complications of urban life. On the road to becoming a major international city, Addis has lost much of its sleepy charm and gained an exponential increase in new businesses, entertaining diversions, and confusion. For residents, visitors, and returning expatriates a source that lists events, restaurants, entertainment venues, concerts, art openings, and other new and continuing urban pleasures seemed essential. This reality was the inspiration for this site.
Being able to organize your working and leisure time using reliable information is helpful for anyone living in the new Addis. This site attempts to gather useful and essential information, along with options for free time in one place, thereby giving users greater access to the richness the city has to offer and aiding businesses in reaching a wider audience.
For visitors and tourists, the site offers options for lodging, dining, shopping, and entertainment, as well as a useful directory of services and a glossary of common words.
This site is in its infancy and to be truly successful in its mission it requires the input of those who use it.
