What I like in Assosa is that I wake up in the morning to the gaily chirping of birds. Actually, that’s almost true across Ethiopia. It’s a bird-watcher’s paradise. Colorful birds — big and small ones — are a common sight. And nobody’s bothering them.
If these birds were in the Philippines, sadly, they’d either be in a cage or someone’s dinner by now. (Ok, well, in some areas only, to be fair.)
