Welcome Aboard Esteemed Customers,

የተከበራችሁ መንገደኞቻችን

he summer season is in full swing. Since midJune, the world has been entirely captivated by the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the mastery of the beautiful game by our African teams. We at Ethiopian have played our part by providing teams and fans with a dream of a ride to Brazil aboard our 787 Dreamliner, with all of its state-of-the-art amenities. Of course, our commitment to offer you the best onboard comfort will continue well beyond the FIFA World Cup. We will be adding two more 787s in July alone, bringing the total number in our fleet to 10. With the largest 787 fleet in Africa, we will be able to greatly expand our number of 787 destinations, including flights to London, Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, São Paulo, Harare, Lusaka, Johannesburg, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Mumbai, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul. Beyond our fleet modernization and expansion program, we are also significantly enhancing our onboard service with a completely revamped menu, which includes quality Ethiopian wine produced by the Castel Group in accordance with the highest international standards. Not leaving out our economy-class customers, we will be introducing Ethiopian culinary delights for our longhaul routes, to give you a taste of our African-flavored Ethiopian hospitality. If the small glimpse we give you of our national dishes leaves you wanting more, you should make Ethiopia your next holiday destination. Our national staple food, injera, is getting a lot of global attention — and for all the right reasons. Made out of teff, a natural, organic and 100-percent gluten-free grain, it is gaining much deserved international acclaim for both its nutritional value and its unique taste. In Ethiopia, you will get the chance to taste the whole range of our rich, diverse and unique cuisine. Our extensive network covering five continents and more than 80 international destinations is there to take you from your doorstep to the four corners of Ethiopia and beyond. We added Kano (Nigeria) to our fast-growing network in May and Vienna (Austria) in June. Madrid, Tokyo, Jakarta and Manila will also be added in the coming months. From wherever you are coming, it will be our pleasure to serve you. Thank you for flying with us. We will continue to work hard every day to earn your confidence. Have a pleasant flight!

Ethiopian Airlines — NOW DIRECT FROM ADDIS TO SHANGHAI

Ethiopian Airlines also recently announced the commencement of flights to: Kano, Nigeria — the airline’s fourth destination in Nigeria, following Abuja, Enugu and Lagos. Four weekly flights to and from the northern city will provide passengers with the best possible connections to such destinations as Jeddah, Dubai, Cairo, Khartoum, Beirut, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Riyadh and Mumbai.

Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest-growing and most-profitable airline in Africa, is pleased to announce the commencement of daily services to Shanghai, China, as of late March. Shanghai is the largest city in China and the country’s economic and financial hub, with growing ties to the continent of Africa. Ethiopian Airlines passengers traveling to Shanghai will enjoy direct flights from Addis aboard the B787 Dreamliner, which offers the best onboard comfort of any aircraft. Shanghai is the fourth Ethiopian Airlines destination in China, a continent that the airline has served continuously for more than 40 years. “Today,” said Ethiopian CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, “with 28 weekly direct flights, we offer the best connectivity from four major cities in China to 48 cities in Africa and two cities in Brazil. “Our network in China is growing very fast,” he noted, “along with the growth of trade, investment and tourism between China and Africa.” A multiple award winner in 2013, Ethiopian was voted “Best Airline in Africa” by the African Airlines Association and by the Passenger Choice Awards. It was also recognized for the “Best Staff Service in Africa” by SKYTRAX and as the “Best Business Class Airline in Africa” by Chinese travelers.

DREAMLINER FLEET CONTINUES TO GROW

T

he first airline outside of Japan to take delivery of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Ethiopian Airlines recently added an eighth Dreamliner to its fleet. The airline will take delivery of another two 787s in 2014. The Boeing 787 is the most technologically advanced commercial aircraft in the world, providing customers the best possible onboard comfort with greatly reduced noise, higher ceilings, the biggest windows in the sky, higher humidity, unique lighting and an overall enhanced travel experience. Ethiopian B787s can be enjoyed on routes to Africa, Brazil, Europe, the United States, Canada and China. “As Africa’s flagship carrier,” said Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, “Ethiopian has always been and remains the aviation

technology leader on the continent by availing the most advanced aircraft to its esteemed customers. “We currently have the youngest fleet in Africa, with an average age of 7 years,” he added, noting the airline’s 15year strategic plan to continue to expand and modernize its fleet in order to provide maximum customer comfort.

“Ethiopian has always been and remains the aviation technology leader on the continent.”

AIRLINE TRAINING SERVICE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR

Ethiopian Aviation Academy has been voted the 2014 “Airline Training Services Provider of the Year” by the African Airlines Association. Recognized for its cost-effective and extensive training support to other African airlines, the academy received the award during a gala dinner and awards ceremony of the Annual Aviation Suppliers and Stakeholders Convention, held in Nairobi earlier this year. “We are very honored by this recognition from sisterly African airlines and our association,” said Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, “for our continued efforts to provide world-class aviation training to our beloved continent.” He noted that, historically, one-third of the academy’s graduates have originated from other African countries. Already the largest aviation academy in Africa, Ethiopian Aviation Academy plans to increase its intake capacity from 1,000 trainees each year to more than 4,000 by 2025, in hopes of providing skilled aviation professionals for the entire African airline industry. Ethiopian Aviation Academy has recently been transformed into a profit center of the Ethiopian Airlines Group, providing training to pilots, aviation technicians and cabin crew, as well as marketing and finance professionals. It is certified by the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency and the IOSA-IATA Safety Audit.

Ethiopian Aviation Academy’s managing director, Mr. Samuel Assefa (at right), receives the award during the Annual Aviation Suppliers and Stakeholders Convention in early May.

Around Addis

ETHIOPIAN

Be dazzled by the capital’s jewelry hotspots.

GEMS

GENET SOUVENIR

Don’t miss this treasure among the hundreds of Ethiopian souvenir shops in the post office area. Beyond its unassuming facade, Genet Souvenir carries everything from carved wooden chalices and golden bangles to brightly colored traditional jewelry and clothing — making it a one-stop shop for the fashionista on your list.

PARSEGHIAN

Owned by an Armenian family with a passion for beauty and style, Parseghian is known for its silver and stone pieces. Contemporary designs combine with elements of traditional Ethiopian jewelry — think azure and amber stones, pebbled silver, and intricate pendants with inlaid silver crosses. And as they’ve been crafted by hand since 1875, Parseghian’s creations boast more than a century of success behind their designs.

KING SILVER

If you’re in the market for silver jewelry with a modern twist, stop by one of King Silver’s many locations across Addis. With the variety of their designs, you can pick up a pair of subtle droplet earrings for your wife, a delicate medallion for your mother and a statement ring for your sister, all in one place.

TEKLU DESTA

For a true gold rush, a trip to the capital’s oldest and largest jewelry store is a must. Over the last six decades, Teklu Desta has charmed customers with its 18- and 21-karat gold selections, ranging from traditional Ethiopian to modern styles. With additional services like custom jewelry design and filigree work, engraving and repairs, it’s no surprise that Teklu Desta has set the city’s gold-standard.

Here — one of the few jewelers in Addis that sells precious stones — connoisseurs can find handmade jewelry with olive-green peridot, skyblue topaz and multihued zircon.

MAKING CENTS Updates in the world of coins and currency.

CURRENCY CONTROVERSY

The first decentralized digital currency — called Bitcoin — continues to raise questions. Bought and spent online, and not associated with a central bank or physical money, bitcoins are used around the world by anyone who purchases them at the going exchange rate. Those in favor of the currency say that, with its low fees and efficient, “lightweight” nature, it promises to promote the global market. Wary others see the danger in the private, anonymous nature of bitcoin transactions, which make exchanges hard to trace and enforce by law. Not helping the virtual currency's case: A glitch earlier this year led to millions of dollars of stolen funds.

LOSING CENTS, SAVING MONEY

Canada is in the early stages of a six-year phase-out of its pennies, begun just last year. When the finance minister first announced that the country would go penniless, he cited that the government would save money over time, given that each coin cost 0.6 cents more than its face value to produce. The news was met with approval, giving the Bank of Canada a needed boost after word got out in 2013 that the C$20 depicted a foreign maple leaf.

MONEY TALKS

Late last year, the heads of state of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda met to discuss and further the East African Monetary Union Protocol — an arrangement that will unite them with a common currency. The effort will remove the clunkiness of exchange rates, with hopes of leading to greater travel and business within the region. The transition, however, is expected to take 10 years to accomplish, with the single currency to be introduced during the final phase.

DON’T BE FOOLED

Recently redesigned with two new security features, the US$100 bill is now harder to counterfeit. Running down the center of the bill is a 3-D security ribbon, woven into the paper, with a pattern that shifts from bells to 100s as you tilt it. Toward the bottom of the bill, a symbol of a bell inside an inkwell also morphs as it’s moved, changing color from copper to green and seeming to disappear. In the works since 2003, the bill costs five cents more than its predecessors to produce.

AFRICAN

UNION AGENDA 2063

Twitter: @auagenda2063

In January of this year, preparations for the 2014 African Union Heads of State Summit started with a retreat organized by Ethiopia’s minister of foreign affairs. This event, billed as the First AU Ministerial Retreat, brought together all of Africa’s foreign ministers and took place in the Ethiopian city of Bahir Dar, on the beautiful shores of Lake Tana. The purpose of the retreat was to review and discuss the African Union’s Agenda 2063: an initiative to outline a strategic vision and plan for the continent over the coming 50 years. The outcome document emphasized the globally acknowledged fact that Africa’s economic and social progress is bound to increase significantly by 2063. This was expressed by Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, chair of the AU Commission, in the form of an “email from the future,” which she presented to the assembly. In this letter, Dlamini-Zuma heralded a united “Confederation of African States” as having become the world’s thirdlargest economy, overcome conflicts and accepted Swahili as a lingua franca. The gathered ministers agreed that this vision could be realized through hard work and a well-planned strategy implemented by governments, civil society organizations, the private sector, and other stakeholders in the economic and social development of the continent.

INTO THE WILD Forget about schlepping your tent and cooking your own grub. These “glamping” destinations take the camping experience to luxe levels.

MAHALI MZURI

WILD LUXURY

Bangkok, Thailand

Narok, Kenya

LUXE

Located in the heart of urban Bangkok yet freed from the city’s trappings, this oasis is only accessible by foot, bike or boat. With a chlorine-free pool, outdoor showers and organic produce grown on-site then cooked with solar power, the treetop getaway is just right for travelers who don’t mind going rugged: One “nest” isn’t much more than an open-air platform, with a bamboo bed, canopy and fabric curtains — all the better for seeing the stars. bangkoktreehouse.com

ROUGH

LUXE

Mahali Mzuri can hardly claim to make visitors “rough it.” Instead, guests luxuriate inside tented suites boasting spacious bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms and verandahs overlooking the African landscape. When lured from their retreats, guests can pamper themselves with relaxing spa treatments and experience the continent’s big beasts on game drives. (The site sits along the path of the Great Migration of wildebeest, gazelles, zebra and other animals.)

ROUGH

LUXE

Efficient, safari-style tents meet the lush English countryside through this familyfriendly outfit. While the tented lodges (which sleep between six and 10 people) open to the wild with roll-up flaps, their interiors look a lot like home, with wood floors, cozy furniture, dining tables and cooking ranges. Plus, there’s good news for roaming youngsters: The beach and countryside are just a skip away. wildluxury.co.uk

ROME, ITALY Ethiopia may lay claim to coffee's origins, but Italy elevated the beverage to an entirely new level. Across Rome, Italians crowd in small bars for tiny, rich cups of espresso and foamy cappuccinos (named after the region's Capuchin monks), served by seriously artful and skilled baristas. Sant'Eustachio il Caffè, located near the famed Pantheon, has served the good stuff since 1938, as its original mosaic paving and furnishings attest. Today, customers still flock for the espresso, always sweetened and made out of sight to protect the coveted blend and barista magic. Plus, its commitment to selling primarily fair-trade coffee makes everything a little sweeter. Try the organic brew from Sidama Union, Ethiopia — a perfect blending of the two coffee cultures. santeustachioilcaffe.it/en

How to sip: Always pay first, and try to finish your espresso in two to three sips while standing at the bar. ETHIOPIA

The scene: At a traditional coffee ceremony, an expression of hospitality What to say: Buna = coffee; jebena = the tall pot used to serve the brew; abole, tonna and bereka = the three ceremonial rounds of brewing (the final of which is considered to be a blessing on the guest) How to sip: To honor your host, drink at least three cups, one from each round. (Don't worry, these cups are on the smaller side.)

Ecosystem

What this Southeast Asian island nation lacks in size and natural resources, it makes up for with a plan for scientific and technological progress.


INNOVATION IS THE BUZZWORD NOITAVON OF THE 21ST E HT CENTURY... D ROWZ Z TS12 E HT


I I B O

Nations across the globe know that progress in the realms of science and technology is essential to keeping their economies robust and attractive to international talent and investors. ¶ Over the last decade or two, biotech neighborhoods around the world such as Toronto’s Discovery District, Boston’s Kendall Square and Hyderabad’s Genome Valley have sought to take research and development to new heights, integrating laboratory facilities with residential and leisure infrastructure. As they blaze new trails in science and technology, they also increase jobs, revenue and prestige for the cities they call home. Abu Dhabi’s Masdar City, which was habitable as of October 2010, has followed this blueprint, with plans to be one of the most environmentally sustainable R&D communities in the world. Nairobi began construction of Konza Technological City in January 2013 and hopes to announce completion around 2030. Nusajaya’s Central Hub, Shanghai’s Zhangjiang Hi-tech Park and Geneva’s Health Valley are all also part of this new wave of highly planned, specialized R&D zones. Within the last 15 years, Singapore has likewise entered into the planned intersection of science, technology and lifestyle with its own biotech neighborhood called one-north, designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Zaha Hadid. Unlike many other developed nations, this island-state has no natural resources, so the impetus for a specialized, knowledge-based economy is vital.

Since the 1960s, the manufacturing of electronic goods has led Singapore’s economic growth, contributing to 5.2 percent of its GDP in 2012. However, Singapore is facing increasingly stiff competition in this sector — from neighboring Southeast Asian countries and farther afield — and the city-state might not be able to maintain its dominance in electronics for long. To stay competitive, it recognizes the need to venture into more advanced fields of manufacturing and development. The Singaporean government is therefore prioritizing development of its chemicals and biotechnology industries. The government raised the R&D budget for science, technology and enterprise by 20 percent until 2015, says Terence Gan, director of electronics at the Economic Development Board Singapore, “with the aim of making Singapore one of the most research-intensive countries in the world.”

CITY WITHIN THE CITY

Imagine a microcosm of scientists, inventors and academics from around the world living and learning together in a futuristic R&D neighborhood. At one-north, sleek skyscrapers, luxury apartment blocks and a mall that looks like a spacecraft coexist with pockets of old colonial houses in a landscape of hilly parkland. Because the neighborhood is a young one, there is much more physical space, peace and quiet here than in other parts of Singapore. The roads feel wider and less congested, and the greenery around the shiny new buildings softens up what could otherwise be a very futuristic and slightly roboticlooking environment. JTC Corporation, the government body responsible for the neighborhood’s development, launched one-north in 2001 as a “city within a city” — a research business park with an exciting work-live-play-learn environment that would attract global R&D activities and talents. “The 200-hectare site is at the heart of a technology corridor [that will be] developed in phases over a period of 40 years,” says a JTC Corporation spokesperson. At present, the built landscape consists of three distinct building clusters: Biopolis, Fusionopolis and the soon-to-be-opened Mediapolis. Biopolis is home to biomedical and life-science government institutes such as A*Star (Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research) and private companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and P&G. Here, public-sector institutes sit side-by-side with corporate labs, fostering a culture of collaboration. The buildings that form the Biopolis cluster even have scientific names: Chromos, Helios and Genome, for example. Currently, more than 4,000 scientists from all corners of the world carry out research at Biopolis. Dr. Kathikeyan Narayanan, a senior research scientist at the A*Star Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, lives in one-north. “The researchers

or scientists here are from different parts of the world — mostly Europe, China, Japan and India,” he says, “and this diversity helps in the creativity.” Dr. Narayanan, who is an Indian citizen, explains that scientists from other countries come to onenorth because of the substantial and sustainable support from the Singapore government. The government grants give them more freedom to pursue new research projects, he says, and the remuneration packages offered by companies are also enticing. “In most cases, housing will be covered for at least six years,” he says, “and for scientists with children, their children’s education expenses will be paid for as well.” Home to more than 2,000 researchers, Fusionopolis brings infocomm technology, science and engineering together with tenants like Autodesk, Seiko Instruments and the Media Development Authority of Singapore. A selfcontained development to be completed later this year, Fusionopolis includes everything from a supermarket and a theater to restaurants, gardens and serviced apartments. The residents will even have their own mass rapid transit station. Mediapolis — slated to open in 2020 — will house private media companies like Lucasfilms and Infinite Studios as well Singapore’s national broadcasting network, Mediacorp. Also in the pipeline for the second phase of one-north’s development is a fourth cluster for electronics and emerging industries. Altogether, more than 7,000 researchers within one-north are granted access to state-of-the-art facilities, specialized services and infrastructure. According to the Economic Development Board,

such access allows companies to cut their R&D costs significantly and achieve their goals more rapidly. Higher-learning institutes such as The National University of Singapore, Singapore Polytechnic and the Singapore Science Park are all located in close proximity, further enhancing one-north’s academic and discovery-oriented character. The lifestyle component to the neighborhood

presents itself in the form of residential areas like Wessex Estate and Nepal Hill, where Unilever’s Four Acres global leadership development center is located, and Rochester Park — a chic restaurant and bar enclave with a business hotel, condominium and shopping malls. The auditorium of Star Vista, a 15-story mall, welcomes a 30,000-strong church congregation each Sunday.

GREAT MINDS

This coexistence of academia with industry, as well as the vibrant mix of international researchers, first drew scientist Shigeki Sugii to one-north. An assistant professor at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Sugii spends his time at Biopolis studying the molecular differences in the stem cells of different types of fat. “Scientists from different disciplines are encouraged to work together,” he says, “which is often the key to invention and innovation. There are ample places here to eat and meet together across different sectors. Researchers in academia are also strongly encouraged to work with businesses, with various support mechanisms available on the campuses.” Beyond the physical infrastructure, JTC also promotes innovation in one-north through its EXCITE (Experiment, Commercialize, and Innovate in a Test-Bedding Experience) program, which provides companies with opportunities to test and showcase their new ideas. Indeed, over cappuccinos at Jimmy Monkey Café or while taking a brainstorming stroll along onenorth park, ideas are formed and new scientific leads reveal themselves. For example, Sugii and his co-workers discovered two cell-surface markers that can be used to identify healthy and unhealthy fat during medical exams. A second research discovery led him and his team to establish a commercial enterprise called LipoStation

Pte Ltd, which specializes in adipose tissue and adipose stem-cell banking services. “Being located in one-north,” Sugii says, “we were able to receive various forms of support from different parties in commercializing and setting up the company. This would not have been so easily accomplished if I were working elsewhere in Singapore.” Dr. Narayanan shares a similar appreciation for the neighborhood, where he enjoys being in close proximity to his work. “I can always visit the laboratory during the weekends to continue my research without having to waste time traveling back and forth. And that’s important as a scientist,” he says, “as you never know when you will be inspired.” Though it may be too soon to tell whether onenorth will indeed help Singapore attain its dream of becoming “the most research-intensive country in the world,” Dr. Narayanan touches on an important element for making that happen. Far more than just a scientific hub, one-north is an incubator for ideas and a place where great minds can meet, play with and — perhaps most importantly — inspire one another.

An Airbed and Breakfast [

Modern travel accommodations across the globe.

]

BY J O D I MACFAR L AN

hen my husband, two friends and I started planning our two-week trip to Europe last year, we were led by two simple desires: partake of great food and wine, and get to know a few locals. We knew that most of our budget would go toward tasting this, that and anything made with truffles, so we expected we’d have to pull back the reins a bit on the quality of our lodging. But that was before we heard of Airbnb.com. Airbnb is a short-term rental service, offering travelers worldwide an alternative means for accommodations — at any price point. Here’s how it works: Property owners (or “hosts”) list their unused spaces online — anything from spare bedrooms and teeny apartments to ample villas and luxurious castles. Travelers looking for a place to stay cull through such listings, categorized by location, availability, type of accommodation and more, and then contact potential hosts to get specific quotes. If both sides are in agreement, the reservation is booked. Following a stay, travelers and hosts review one another online, ensuring that future travelers to that location and hosts of that guest are fully informed before a reservation is confirmed. Since its founding in 2008, Airbnb (short for “an airbed and

breakfast,” as the first iteration of the site offered) has added more than 300,000 listings in 34,000 cities and 192 countries. Guests have booked more than 10 million nights — including the 10 that my party and I spent traversing France and Italy. At each of the six places we rented, we experienced the hospitality of a hotel while enjoying the comforts of a home, all for little more than the cost of a hostel. Thanks to Airbnb, we ended up keeping enough euros in our wallet to fully enjoy the gastronomic delights we were seeking, and we met many an incredible host who enriched our travels: like Walter, the Italian bed-and-breakfast owner who showed us around his family’s 50-year-old vineyard before leaving us with a bottle of his homegrown Barbera; and Robert, who surely spent more on the wine-and-cheese party he threw for us than we spent on our entire stay in the apartment attached to his French countryside cottage. At the end of that European adventure, we returned home begrudgingly (of course) yet satisfied, grateful for every taste savored, site seen, room rented and friend made. And though it’s now been more than a year since we were together, we’ve made sure that our great hosts are aware of the beds available in our own abodes — humble as they may be — and the aging bottles of wine just waiting to be shared.

Airbnb.com includes listings in scores of cities served by Ethiopian Airlines — ranging from the quirky to the opulent — but here are a few of our favorite picks.

The story behind the company’s rapid rise.

Like many a great idea, the concept for Airbnb seemed to lift itself off the ground, accelerating an old trend by catching the tailwinds of the time. It all started in 2007, when Joe Gebbia and Brian Chesky decided to open their San Francisco loft to travelers attending a popular graphic-design conference. Knowing that area hotels had all been booked, the roommates figured, Why not offer up our own place, along with a tasty breakfast and local hospitality, to a few friendly strangers? Add in a couple of airbeds, and the seed for Airbnb was sown. But Airbnb is really just the updated version of an old idea, says spokeswoman Sarah Roy, adding that even Chesky’s grandfather used to travel by staying 40

selamtamagazine.com

in people’s homes. Airbnb just took that common concept further through the use of technology. “The difficult economic times we’re going through accelerated the process,” Roy adds. “Airbnb allows people to get extra money for their living expenses and to travel more. The network effect has helped our service become truly international quickly.” And though there are several competitors out there, the company says what makes Airbnb stand apart is the community behind it. “Other sites may borrow our concept or copy our designs,” Roy says, “but the genuine, trusted relationships our community fosters cannot be replicated through a few lines of code.”

Children play in a labyrinthine alley of Harar Jugol — one of many tucked within the city’s famed wall. The 4-meterhigh structure that surrounds the city helped to sustain its unique language and culture.

Of the 99 original mosques built by the Harar Kingdom, 82 remain active today.

— the ancient gated labyrinth also known as Harar Jugol — is a city shaped by insularity and exchange, mysticism and magic, faith and history. For centuries, poets have been drawn here as a transcendent outpost where Islamic scholarship and the fine art of leather bookbinding thrived. Once the seat of the Harar Kingdom, this is also where a fiercely defended hive of commercial trade ushered in rare and essential goods to inland Africa. Today, wild spotted hyenas walk peaceably through moon-drenched nights down winding alleyways. During the day, this architectural maze of sun-soaked homes disorients and delights the senses. Colorful markets offer fruit, handmade soaps and silver jewelry while tailors line the narrow streets with their sewing machines. The ghosts of kings, saints, explorers and healers live side by side with the roughly 75,000 residents who refer to themselves as Ge’Usu (“people of the city”) and who call Harar Jugol home. 46

selamtamagazine.com


Harar is the fourth most-holy city of Islam (after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem), founded by Sheikh Aw Abadir and 43 other saints in 940 A.D. Located in the lush green hills of Eastern Ethiopia’s Somal region, the Harar Kingdom built 99 mosques according to the 99 names of God referred to in the Quran. Of those, an estimated 82 remain active today. When Aw Abadir threw down his turban, the power of its impact is said to have created Mount Hakim, cascading above Harar in the distance. And circling the city is a 4-meter-high, rugged limestone wall built between 1551 and 1558, with five gates that correspond to the five pillars of Islam. For centuries, this wall kept invaders at bay while sustaining a rich culture and a unique language. The language — called Ge’Sinan (or Harari) — is a mix of Amharic, Arabic, Afaan Oromo and Somali that’s only spoken within the city walls. Those walls completely sealed out the world until 1855, when the British explorer and poet Sir Richard Burton became the first Westerner to enter. One year earlier, he had secretly visited the holy city of Mecca, where he penned a Sufi poem under a pseudonym that detailed his unique

spiritual  philosophy. Perhaps sensing Harar’s strong mystical pull, he spent 10 days inside the city and declared that even its walls speak a kind of poetry. Following in Burton’s footsteps, the French “fugitive poet” Arthur Rimbaud arrived in Harar 25 years later, in 1880. He made the old city his home for 11 years as a trader of coffee, arms and incense. Having published A Season in Hell to critical acclaim in 1873, Rimbaud was hailed as the first “modern poet,” adored by surrealists like Andre Breton and French symbolists including Paul Verlaine, Rimbaud’s tumultuous lover. Despite this burgeoning fame, the poet abandoned his decadent life in Europe when he moved to Harar via Aden. Instead, he followed a path of adventure devoid of all ties to his past. Rimbaud’s years in Africa are somewhat shrouded in mystery, but it is in Harar that he found he could still live as a poet — absorbing the city and its people through his very senses — without ever needing to pick up a pen. Instead, he threw himself into Islamic studies as well

Until the 20th century, grain production remained the most important occupation in Harar. 48

as dangerous expeditions through the desert with Harari men and their camel caravans. Badri Lemai, one of Harar’s best-known modern poets and singers, is a testament to Harar’s timeless inspiration. Badri lives in a traditional Jugol-style home, with its elevated platforms (representing seating hierarchies), fanciful cushions, ornate rugs and floral enamelware trays that hang proudly on the walls. Surrounded by heaps of books, scattered papers and manuscripts in progress, Badri composes contemporary poetry in English, Amharic and Ge’Sinan. Influenced by international visionaries such as Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X and Kwame Nkurumah, his poems are philosophical gestures, where he asks readers to consider themselves as “giant thinkers in a school of stars.” Badri credits Harar’s ancient Harla roots as the foundation for much of his existential thinking. His grandmother, also a poet, first taught Badri about the Harla philosophy, a pre-Islamic worldview of people known as agile giants and ruled by boastful kings and wizards. The Harla lived in the Harar region in approximately 1200 A.D. and are now considered one of

Ethiopia’s lost civilizations whose energies still permeate Harar, according to Badri. Poetry in Harar lives inside the laments of Harari folksongs and is woven into the ecstatic praise lyrics heard chanted over the air waves, at local shrines and even as ringtones on local cell phones. The city boasts more than 100 shrines devoted to saints — those of coffee, skies and rain, those who fix what is broken and return what is lost. There is a saint of night and of day, of honey and of hyenas, even a saint who grants peace to “one who has killed a cat.” Ritual relationships with these saints bind all Hararis to the spiritual realm, charging the city with a heightened sense of awareness of worlds within and beyond the here and now. Walking through the winding streets of Jugol, it’s hard to resist the pull of poetry in every direction. From wafting frankincense and roasting Arabica coffee beans, to sunkissed mosques, wailing calls to prayer and candlelit markets, this city unfolds in verse after verse of altered consciousness, lighting a literary match to any poet’s inner fire.

The streets of Jugol are said to feel the push and pull of poetry from every direction.

One Africa, One Voice

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS

One Africa, One Voice

OVERVIEW Despite a restrictive mandate as an advisory and consultative body, the PAP is continuing to play a key role in promoting democracy , good governance and the harmonisation of laws on the continent. This will lead to more direct investment, development and prosperity for the peoples of Africa. The objectives of the PAP are mainly to promote the principles of human rights, democracy, good governance, peace and security. The PAP is also expected to promote collective selfreliance, strengthen continental solidarity and build a sense of common destiny among the peoples of Africa. STRUCTURE The highest decision-making organ of the PAP is in the Plenary Session. However, the main work which results in the decisions is performed by the 10 Permanent Committees, which meet to oversee the work of the AU. The Bureau of the PAP, which is responsible for the management of the Parliament, is composed of the President and four Vice -Presidents, who represent the five regions of Africa. The current President of the PAP is Hon Bethel Nnaemeka Amadi, from Nigeria. The First Vice President is Hon Roger Nkodo Dang from Cameroon, The Second Vice President is Hon Suilma Hay Emhamed Saleh from Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic , the Third Vice President is Hon Loide Kasingo from Namibia and the Fourth Vice President is Hon Dr. Ashebir Woldegiorgis Gayo from Ethiopia .

Hon Bethel Amadi – President

Hon Roger Nkodo– 1st VP

The Bureau is supported by a Secretariat comprising of permanent staff members drawn from all over Africa. The Head of the Secretariat is Adv Zwelethu Madasa from South Africa. TRANSFORMATION The PAP is currently undergoing a review process of its protocol. It is hoped that the review will culminate into the assignment of legislative functions to the PAP to make model laws that would contribute to the harmonization of laws and policies of AU member states across the continent. The harmonization of laws and policies in the continent is an important precondition in achieving greater intra-African trade, industrialization, regional economic integration and eradication of poverty.

A MARVELOUS COUNTRY WITH COUNTLESS INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Burundi is a country with a lot of tourism attractions. Among the natural attractive tourist sites are the wide sandy and sunny beaches, places for nautical sports along the Lake Tanganyika, thermal waters, national reserves with Chimpanzees among other animals, the northern lakes also known as the “bird lakes”, the various waterfalls including the Karera falls, Stanley and Livingstone and dynasty sites to name but a few. Burundi has a diverse and rich cultural legacy that includes not only dances and traditional music but also the famous drummers which are unique in the world. In addition to its beauty, Burundi has a lot of potential that has not yet been exploited. The most promising sectors now opening for investment are agriculture (agro-industries), energy, mining, transport infrastructures (railways, air and maritime transport), hotel facilities,

neighborhood bar or the way it is presented in really chic places.” In Milan, a typical aperitivo buffet might include items such as mini pizzas, focaccia, cold cuts, a raw vegetable tray and a frittata. At the upscale Moschino Hotel, when guests order a drink, a small, bento-type box full of hors d’oeuvres arrives. Some say Milanese aperitivo started at the historic Bar Basso when a bartender accidentally invented the Negroni Sbagliato (sbagliato means “mistake” in Italian) by adding dry spumante instead of gin to the cocktail of sweet vermouth, Campari and an orange slice. Until then, only large hotel bars offered cocktails,

Aperitivo originated as a way to “open the stomach” before a meal with a medicinal-tasting concoction (still offered in bars). Today, though, it is a trendy post-work rite where most bars offer a spread of food starting around 6 p.m. Italians don’t eat their evening meal until 8 p.m. or later, so aperitivo serves as either a snack or a de facto dinner for those who don’t want a heavy meal. “You order a drink, and it typically comes with lots of different things to nibble on,” says Amie Louie, editor-in-chief of Easy Milano, the city’s biweekly English-language publication. “It’s impressive either because of the abundance of food offered at a typical

and Bar Basso was apparently the first neighborhood bar to begin making them in addition to the classic, more medicinal aperitifs. Aperitivo culture really took off during the 1980 “boom years,” when a famous ad campaign for a liqueur characterized the city and its bustling post-work nightlife as Milano da Bere (Drinking Milan). Today, in Italy’s capital of fashion and design, there are bars to suit all tastes. While Milan may be landlocked, it was once an important port and is crisscrossed by canals. The canals in the Navigli district make for a nice backdrop to the area’s bars and restaurants. Capetown Café on Via Vigevano boasts an ornate wooden bar, exposed brick archways, and wood tables and chairs. On warmer nights, the creative types who frequent the Capetown prefer to sit outside and sip their beers or mojitos while enjoying a spread of focaccia, olives, cold cuts and pasta salad. The Palazzo Reale in Piazza Duomo is home to the city’s most important art exhibitions and its own bar, the Giacomo Caffé. Palazzo Reale maintains the Old-World charm of Milan’s old royal palace with its wooden bar, red banquettes, and antique mirrors and light fixtures. On warmer nights, a light aperitivo is offered in the museum’s courtyard, typically accompanied by live musical performances. For aperitivo with a view, Terrazza Aperol in Piazza Duomo offers a breathtaking close-up of the spires of the city’s famous cathedral, Duomo di Milano. This is also the home of Aperol,

The space is large and modern and features splashes of the signature Aperol orange. Waiters circle by with hot homemade potato chips served in paper cones and perhaps a tray of triangular tramezzini sandwiches on crustless white bread, or fruit and vegetable sticks. Foresta Woodbar, on Via Celestino IV near Piazza Vetra, is new on the scene. It has an “urban forest” theme with low lighting and a glass-enclosed garden room. Its signature Nature Identity cocktail features lychee fruit, soda, prosecco, ginger beer and caviar spheres. During aperitivo starting at 7 p.m., patrons can help themselves to a selection of finger food at the bar. Many nights, the bar hosts a “Sweet Hour” starting at 10, when cakes, meringues and biscotti are brought to the table when you order a drink. While the aperitivo tradition can be found in cities across Italy, it has truly found its home in Milan. Here, diners can

Small Wonder Zuriel Oduwole dreams big for the African continent. |

Zuriel Oduwole possesses a passion to rebrand Africa. “I want to show the rest of the world,” she says, “that Africa has a lot of wonderful business leaders who are making positive decisions.”

BY CE L E ST E H OAN G


DAN K R AU SS

Meeting 11-year-old Zuriel Oduwole is like encountering the alter ego of a superhero. The young girl of Nigerian and Mauritian descent with doll-like eyes and chipmunk cheeks lives with her family in an unassuming suburban American neighborhood in California. But on the African continent, she is a sensation: a rising political journalist who has interviewed one in six heads of government; a media darling with a passion to rebrand Africa; and a role model to thousands of children worldwide through her educational-rights activism. “A lot of people see Africa as full of negative things: famine, corruption, wars,” says Zuriel, who calls Africa her home away from home. “But I’ve seen a lot of positive things that they don’t show on the news. I want to show the rest of the world that Africa has a lot of wonderful business leaders who are making positive decisions.” Zuriel first gained attention two years ago, when she wrote to Ghana’s former president Jerry Rawlings to ask if she could interview him about the country’s 1979 revolution for a school documentary competition. Shocked when he said yes, the then-9-year-old flew to Ghana with her family and impressed Rawlings so much that her 15-minute scheduled block was extended to more than 90 minutes. The former president even ordered lunch for the two to share in his office.

From there, the story of the young journalist spread throughout Africa, and her list of high-profile interviewees grew to include presidents and prime ministers from Kenya, Liberia, South Sudan and Jamaica, to name a few. (Rawlings remains one of Zuriel’s favorites, she admits.) Her accomplishments to date can only be abridged: youngest in the world to be featured in Forbes Africa; named one of the world’s 100 most powerful individuals by Business Insider magazine; invited to attend the African Union’s 50th anniversary conference; and selected as Global Brand Ambassador for Ethiopian Airlines and Heritage Bank’s Financial Literacy Ambassador in Nigeria. “I just see myself as Zuriel, an 11-yearold who wakes up and still has chores,” she says when asked to describe herself, “[but] I hope I’m an inspiration to other

kids on the African continent and across the world.” This is Zuriel Oduwole in a nutshell: a child who straddles both the ordinary realities of life and its overwhelming possibilities. In person, she is a small wonder — graceful and poised, childlike yet impossibly mature, with perfect posture and a voice that has a songbirdlike lilt. She loves basketball and tennis; her favorite movie is Shark Tale; and her role model is Nelson Mandela, because “he didn’t have hatred in his heart and became a leader of his country.” What sets her apart is her indelible sense of confidence; she knows she can make her life extraordinary. In fact, her goals may require nine lives. She’d like to retire from journalism at 19 and then become a children’s book author, a professional athlete (the 100-meter sprint would be her choice), an engineer (“I like building various contraptions”), a doctor, and eventually president of the United States (“so I can make a difference around the world”). She already knows her top three colleges too: Yale, Harvard and Princeton. For now, Zuriel and her three younger siblings are homeschooled through an online network, an arrangement she prefers because it lets her wake up earlier than her local school system. Already in the eighth grade — three grades higher than her peers — she likes to start most days at 5 a.m. and no later than 7. “When you finish your set lessons at other schools, you have no other lessons,” she laments. “We can get up really early and learn a lot more material.” Her language-arts teacher through the homeschool program, Robert Yu, sees her in person several times a semester and says july/august 2014

given the opportunity.” Zuriel grew up with that message and now wants to see it delivered to families throughout Africa. Between her travels and watching the news, she noticed that more girls in Africa were selling items on the streets than boys, and that educational opportunities usually went first to boys over girls. In response, she partnered with Nigeria’s Lagos Business School and U.S. Consulate last year to launch “Dream Up, Speak Up, Stand Up.” The program allows her to visit schools and deliver motivational speeches to students, particularly young girls, about equal rights to education and the importance of staying in school.  

“I just see myself as Zuriel, an 11-yearold who wakes up and still has chores,” Zuriel says, “[but] I hope I'm an inspiration to other kids on the African continent and across the world.”

she’s a happy, regular kid who possesses a special strength. “She doesn’t believe there is a problem she can’t solve,” he says. “That’s unusual for a child her age.” Zuriel is indeed remarkable, but much is also owed to her mother and father, who take on parenthood with a refreshing enthusiasm. “If you leave your kids to regular things, they just become regular,” says her father, Ademola. A former business-restructuring adviser, he has since quit his job to manage Zuriel’s career. “But we pour confidence into them, tell them that they can be exceptional,” he says. “With Zuriel, when she’s doing something that phenomenal, you have to step up your game.” Homeschooling lets the family travel often, says her mother, Patricia, who wants to make sure her kids enjoy a varied experience of life and culture. Together, they’ve visited more than a dozen countries and lived in Paris and Hong Kong. Zuriel and her two schoolage sisters currently take Mandarin lessons in the evening. For Patricia, every child has been endowed with something special. “As parents, we just try our best to see what they’ve been given and nurture that. Absolutely every child can excel if they’re

“I want to show that you should always dream big and never let anyone put down your dreams,” she says of her program, which has since been recognized by the U.S. State Department and deployed in 13 schools across Malawi, Mauritius, Nigeria and Tanzania. “Speak up for your dream. Stand, stand and stand again because, from my experience, many successful people fail at first before succeeding.” YouTube features several videos of Zuriel delivering speeches. In one, she is in Tanzania, speaking to a large crowd of young students seated before her. “If dreams were for sale, what would you buy?” she asks. “Your dreams, along with your actions, can help determine your future. And if they’re big enough, they can determine the future of many other people as well.” She’s taking her own words to heart, too, dreaming as far as the eye can see. Up next, she’d like to interview U.S. President Barack Obama and expand her speaking program to Ethiopia. Ultimately, it’s about “each one, teach one,” she says. Her greatest hope is that every time she proves anything is possible, she’s inspiring another child to do the same.

he father of Ivorian independence was a strong believer in what he called “the march of progress.” In just 20 years, between the early 1960s and the early 1980s, Félix Houphouët-Boigny turned Côte d’Ivoire from a rural colonial backwater into a thriving modern nation of highways, airports and deluxe hotels. And yet this tidal wave of modernity didn’t drown every aspect of Côte d’Ivoire’s colonial heritage, as a visit to the beguilingly beautiful town of Grand-Bassam reveals. Bassam — as it’s nicknamed — is a 30-minute drive from Abidjan, the capital city of Côte d’Ivoire. The road between the two winds through both traditional wood-hut villages and more recently built slums, out of which rise the crosses of storefront churches and the crescent moons of cupboard-sized mosques. And tucked on the outskirts of this vibrant town is Le Quartier Colonial, a charming assortment of French colonial buildings erected between the 1890s and the 1930s. Joining its network of floral boulevards are statuesque banana and papaya trees. The sweeping balconies, hipped roofs and paper-white stucco

walls evoke movies such as the 1939 classic Gone With the Wind. Neatly tended flowerbeds also add color to expansive backyards and driveways. While a handful of these properties are owned by wealthy businesspeople, most lie vacant and put off a somewhat ghostly vibe. From time to time this restful, oldworld scene is disturbed by the buzz of contemporary life. A truck so jampacked that some passengers cling to the roof might wheeze down one of the boulevards. Outside the old courthouse, Rastafarians in pink hats occasionally hard-sell toy giraffes and fresh coconuts. (An unequivocal but polite “Non, merci” usually wards them off.) And yet the quaintness of history prevails. Blessed with an outstanding natural harbor, Grand-Bassam began life as a trading post in the late 15th century, established by the first French explorers to West Africa. It was not until 1842 that the French struck a deal with Attékéblé, a tribal leader and merchant, to set up a protectorate in the region with Bassam as its capital. Building began then on the old courthouse, post office and mansions located in the colonial quarter. When a yellow fever epidemic hit Bassam in the mid-1890s, the French were forced to relocate their capital to Bingerville. The development of GrandBassam continued, however, and people from Europe, the Middle East and other

parts of Africa migrated there throughout the next 70 years. Nowadays, some of the buildings look timeworn — a tile missing here, a lick of paint needed there — but help is at hand. After an application was made by the Côte d’Ivoire government in 2008, UNESCO deemed Bassam a location worthy of preservation due to its historical significance, inventive town planning

and incorporation of buildings belonging to the N’zima tribe. Bassam officially became a World Heritage Site in 2012. UNESCO has tasked the Ivorian government with spending US$1.3 million over four years on conservation, including repairs to the façades and other features of specific buildings. But preserving the site’s authenticity isn’t just about construction work. UNESCO requires measures to be taken against coastal erosion and water and traffic pollution. The location’s biodiversity must also be defended. As Grand-Bassam Mayor Georges Philippe Ezaley says, “Even the ancient mango tree on the roadside cannot be cut down.” Le Quartier Colonial is on course to become a fascinating, 1.1-square-kilometer open-air museum by 2016. Were President Houphouët-Boigny alive today, the man who appreciated tradition as much as innovation would no doubt be thrilled by Grand-Bassam’s “march of progress” to the past. july/august 2014

ne by one, the pure white stallions enter the chandeliered baroque hall, seemingly unaware of the audience, lights and polka music. Evenly spaced, four walk regally to one side of the grand arena and four to the other. Upon passing the enormous painting of Emperor Charles VI, their riders solemnly remove their caps and bring them to their chests, in reverence of the man who commissioned this elegant space. Then, it’s a single-file line through the traditional wooden pillars, a pirouette here, a canter there, the spring and kick of the capriole, the gravity-defying courbette, and the strenuous balancing act of the levade. All the while, the deft, unflappable riders offer encouraging pats and strokes. Although the gallant horses are most definitely working for their keep, it appears they can’t get enough of the spotlight and the sheer fun. It’s as if they know they’re lucky enough to have been called to this oldest, most prestigious of equestrian academies —

and they want you to know it. Here in the heart of Vienna, the Spanish Riding School has proven its staying power since battle on horseback was still in fashion. Throughout the 450 years since its founding, the ambience and tradition have undergone little change: The same uniforms, music and horsemanship are on display for performances throughout the year, and the school is still considered a significant part of Austrian cultural heritage. Indeed, in a city that today boasts boutique designer hotels, eclectic restaurants and trendy cafes, the Spanish Riding School — part of the Vienna Imperial Palace — insists on being a

Cadets at the school (below) spend up to six years learning not only classical horsemanship but also how to properly care for their equestrian charges.

traditional emblem of the Austrian capital. Determined to keep it classic and regal, the school reflects the noble Age of Empire but with one admirable exception: A visit these days is no longer reserved for the elite and, moreover, can include a behindthe-scenes peek at how these majestic creatures are groomed for the limelight. While leading a tour through the school’s adjacent stables, guide Christina Arthold explains the careful selection that takes place deep in the hills of southeastern Austria. Since 1920, she says, breeders at the Piber stud farm there have observed which among the Lipizzaner horses — admired for their intelligence, adaptability and willingness to work — would be bestsuited for classical dressage. In addition, the school selects only stallions. According to Arthold, they are unbowed by the rigor of intense training and the pressure to perform. “They are natural show-offs,” she says. Likewise, the Lippizzaners’ human partners embark on a road that requires patience, dedication and skill. Before they are allowed to perform, cadets spend up to six years learning not only classical horsemanship but also how to care for their equestrian charges. Andreas Hausberger, one of the school’s two chief riders, began riding at age 7 with the dream of performing here. “Of course you have the Spanish Riding School in mind,” he says. Applicants face fierce competition, says Hausberger, who began his training at the school in 1984, at age 19. Out of hundreds of would-be pupils, only one or two new riders are admitted each

year; the school accepts applicants solely from the European Union; and women weren’t granted entry until 2008. Today, one female assistant rider and four women pupils train alongside the men. Every stallion at the school stays with his rider till the horse retires; horses are broken in at age 4 and eligible for retirement at 25. “We are still the only place where the High School of Classical Horsemanship has been preserved,” Hausberger says. “We see the horses as partners.” Athenian historian and soldier Xenophon first described this ancient art around 350 B.C. His treatise On Horsemanship dispenses thorough advice for selecting, breaking in, caring for, grooming, mounting, training and riding horses. More than a millennium later, when the Moors invaded Spain, they crossbred

their native Berber horses with Spanish stock. In the 16th century, when the Habsburgs ruled both Spain and Austria, the new breed was introduced to the latter; a stud farm was established at Lipizza, in modern-day Slovenia, and the horses were given their moniker. While their trademark is their gleaming white coats, one dark horse is always included in Spanish Riding School performances “as a good-luck charm,” Hausberger says. So prized are these snow-white horses who perform the world over that, at the end of World War II, U.S. General George Patton cooperated with German Wehrmacht officers stationed in Czechoslovakia to protect some 250 Lipizzaners. Fearing that the famished Red Army soldiers would capture the horses for meat, the Germans asked Patton for help escorting the animals safely to Vienna. Patton, brusque and no-nonsense by most measures, later reminisced about the Lipizzaners in his diary, noting how “ . . . it is probably wrong to permit any highly developed art, no matter how fatuous, to perish from the earth.” He then added, “To me, the high-schooling of horses is certainly more interesting than either painting or music.” Watching the lithe, rythmic Lipizzaners train and perform, visitors are left with the same gratitude for the Spanish Riding School. Having withstood the whims of monarchy and republic, the school, its horses and its riders proudly carry on ageold traditions in a world that seems to change as quickly as a horse’s gallop.
