FREE CITY TOURS FOR TRANSIT PASSENGERS

SELAMTAMAGAZINE.COM

As well as flying millions of passengers to and from Addis Ababa every year, Ethiopian Airlines is proud to fly passengers from around the world for whom Addis Ababa is a stopover, rather than a final destination. In order to give these transit passengers a brief taste of all that the capital city has to offer as a destination, Ethiopian now offers free city tours for transit passengers who are staying in Addis Ababa for six to eight hours. This complimentary city tour package is organized by Ethiopian Holidays, the tour operator wing of Ethiopian Airlines, and takes visitors on an express visit to the city’s main attractions. The itinerary includes a visit to the National Museum, souvenir shopping, and an authentic traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony. Passengers who are interested in taking part in the free city tour must contact Ethiopian Airlines prior to departure to obtain a transit tour voucher.

frica has about 420 million young people aged 15 to 35 and this number is expected to increase to 830 million by 2050 and approximately 46% of Africa’s labour force will be young people aged 15-34 by 2063. Presently youth face significant challenges in accessing key development resources such as education, skills, employment and experience barriers to engagement that would enable them to contribute to society. Approximatley 50% of secondary-age Africans are out of school and access to quality education which builds relevant skills are limited. In addition there is a rising mismatch between education and the needs of industry and the labour market. Furthermore, an estimated 11 million youth enter the job market annually; however, only 3 million formal jobs are created within that time frame. The lack of waged jobs push the youth into the informal sector where jobs are typically less stable and have lower earning potential. As a result, thousands of young Africans resort to desperate measures including forced migration in search of jobs, livelihood, and a better future. Marginalisation and the failure to invest in young people exposes Africa to economic underperformance and brain drain, youth criminality, and political and social unrest of youth in the society. The extent to which we are able to commit to youth development through transformational initiatives will be key to harnessing Africa’s demographic dividend and achieving Aspiration 6 of Africa’s Agenda 2063 which envisions “An Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children”. To achieve this vision stakeholders need to identify and implement initiative that will embolden stakeholders to consider new perspectives, test new ideas and scale up promising practices across the continent that will improve the lot of youth in Africa. This will be done through leveraging public-private sector partnerships among key regional and continental players in the development space, leading to the incorporation of a sustainable ecosystem built along collaborative and pan-African lines. In April 2019, the African Union rolled out a new initiative the 1 Million By 2021 which aims to reach 1 million young people in Africa by creating opportunities for youth to actively and meaningfully drive the full realisation of Africa’s Agenda 2063. The initiative which was launched at the AU Headquarters in Ethiopia, during a four-day Pan African Forum organised under the theme ‘Africa Unite for Youth: Bridging the gap and reaching African Youth;” brought together over 400 young people from across the continent to co-create solutions identified around the key areas of Employment, Entrepreneurship, Education

and Engagement (4E’s) which will accelerate socioeconomic development on the continent. The 1 Million By 2021 Initiative will address the roots of the problems facing youth and identifies gaps such as the mismatch of qualifications and work force requirements, limited or restricted youth participation in leadership and governance structures, insufficient number of teachers at secondary and vocational level and limited access to investment capital for young entrepreneurs, among a myriad of other issues. The 4Es and 12 Solution Pathways • Education: Provide scholarship opportunities to young people especially young women at all levels (secondary, post-secondary, TVET), provide alternative pathways and remote learning resources and tools for skills development and establish a Teachers Without Borders program to address quality of delivery and availability. •

Employment: Provide professional internships and apprenticeship programs to ensure young people are able to contextualise learning to the world of work, establish physical and virtual job preparedness and matching services to connect young people to available opportunities, develop a digital skills program to prepare young people for new skills that enable them to be globally competitive and access roles outside their traditional geographical areas. Entrepreneurship: Mobilise and catalyse capital to allow youth ventures and start-up companies to grow, achieve economies of scale, and move into underserved markets, provide scale up opportunities including physical and virtual mentorship initiatives for young entrepreneurs; entrepreneurial and business development education delivered within a network of in-person and virtual spaces and Incubation services delivered through established companies. Engagement: Identify virtual and physical leaders to coach, nurture and continuously support emerging leaders across thematic areas on the continent.

The 1 Million By 2021 initiative adopts a PanAfrican outlook and facilitates long term strategic partnerships to open up new opportunities for young people in Africa. It will promote African solutions and innovations, co-created with and driven by young people, while building frameworks, institutions and structures for effective engagement of stakeholders, sustainable financing, implementation and accountability. The initiative builds upon the progress Africa is making in improving capacities through education and skills development; creating,

Hotels & Hotspots

CAVALIER HOTEL —Virginia Beach After a restful night at The Cavalier, guests might wake up feeling a bit presidential – like some of the hotel’s more famous past clientele. Former U.S. presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and John F. Kennedy are among those who deemed The Cavalier a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the nation’s capital. Paying homage to that storied past, The Cavalier recently completed a grand renovation to restore its 85 guest rooms, lounges and eateries to world-class standards. Classic elegance, clever nods to history and contemporary touches can be found throughout the property. From the claw foot tubs in the bathrooms and the tufted velvet lounge

furniture to the delightful vintage flair of the indoor swimming pool, the countless design details make a visit to this hotel an unforgettable experience. For as low as $241 per night, spend a unique getaway weekend at the beach with a time-traveling twist.

THE MAIN —Norfolk Those partial to waterfront scenery will find delight in Hilton Norfolk The Main – the latest hotel to open in Norfolk, Virginia’s growing downtown area. The 23-storey hotel sits in the ideal spot for picture-perfect views of the Elizabeth River. The elegant contemporary décor features numerous pieces of original art from the owner’s private collection. Enjoy them best from the city’s only rooftop beer garden, Grain at The Main, which honors Norfolk’s strong beer brewing history, dating all the way back to America’s foundation at Jamestown. The hotel also features elegant Italian and seafood restaurants, serving locallysourced produce and fish. Rates begin around $203 per night for a standard double queen or king.

QUIRK HOTEL —Richmond Located in the burgeoning arts district of Richmond, Virginia’s capital city, the stylish Quirk Hotel, true to its name, maintains an offbeat design sensibility. Though Quirk’s life as a hotel started just a few years ago, the building’s history goes back to 1916 when it opened as a dry goods store. The hotel designers are also art gallery owners so expect inventive, curated touches meant to engulf guests in the local culture — bright rooms with vibrant décor featuring local artwork, crafted cocktails and coffees sourced from

local ingredients, and bike rentals for an eco-friendly local exploration. However, guests need not travel far for a taste of art, since Quirk is nestled next to its namesake, Quirk Gallery.

Continue the artistically stimulating experience by booking one of its two-level loft suites featuring open, airy spaces, high ceilings, and large windows starting from $322 per night. JULY/AUGUST 2019

troll through Geneva’s Park La Grange on a nice summer day, and you’ll find an unusual attraction: a flock of sheep grazing on the green lawns. Fluffy and gentle, the creatures nibbling on the grass within a spacious enclosure are an irresistible draw for both children and adults. After all, you just don’t see sheep in urban European locales very often. It’s as if you’ve suddenly stepped out of the busy metropolis and into a bucolic countryside scene. The sheep aren’t there to simply entertain, however; they are official “employees” of the city of Geneva, hired to keep the park’s grass trimmed in summertime, thereby replacing mechanical lawn mowers that are noisy, bulky and, if dieselpowered, smelly, too. The initiative is part of Geneva’s Urbanature program, launched in 2014 to make concrete-covered spaces greener, bring more biodiversity to parks, and add other eco-friendly touches to the urban fabric. Working with Geneva’s Service of Green Spaces, or Service des Espaces Verts (SEVE) in French, Urbanature built a small park on the roof of Geneva’s public hospital and introduced various plants and flowers around the city, as well as having brought the furry ruminants onto Geneva’s lawns. Park La Grange, Geneva’s largest green space of 200,000 square meters, was the first to welcome the natural grass-cutters. Brought from a farm outside the city, the sheep are kept on the park’s meadows, and their enclosures are regularly moved around to keep the land equally pruned.

28

SELAMTAMAGAZINE.COM

More parks will follow this trend in the near future, says SEVE’s head of service Daniel Oertli. “Sheep are truly ecological,” he says, adding that as soon as next summer, other green grounds such as parks and cemeteries will see the animals grazing around. Indeed, with Geneva’s 52 parks occupying 310 hectares, there will be plenty of lawns to mow. Geneva ranks among the world’s top 10 cities for quality of life — and for good reason. Switzerland is known for its environmental innovations, clean air and water technologies, recycling, and waste-to-energy conversions — and Geneva is certainly leading that trend. Unlike many other metropolises reputed to be concrete jungles, 20 percent of Geneva is covered with thriving plants. The water in Lake Geneva is so clean it’s suitable for drinking. Everything from paper to plastic to food leftovers, even used teabags, is either recycled or composted instead of being dumped into landfills or left leeching into the water. Indeed, the city of Geneva spends from US$203,000 to $304,000 a year to keep it clean, airy and verdantly green. And the efforts pay off. Genevans enjoy their big-city living as much as they relish their countryside. The Swiss like to thank the Alps for making them so efficient, innovative and eco-minded. Historically, the harsh Alpine winters and rough mountainous terrains made life and agriculture challenging. But the Swiss learned to treasure nature and gingerly take care of their land so it

would keep bearing fruit year after year. “We had to be very self-sufficient in growing food,” says Kristine Gentina, a native Genevoise who works at Geneva Tourism and loves telling visitors about her city. “Loving nature and all things green is in our genes.” Living life outdoors

With all these efforts, it’s hardly surprising that Genevans love being outdoors in all seasons, and certainly during the summer. Lake Geneva plays an integral part in the city’s outdoor life. Crescentshaped and hugged by the Alps, the lake hosts an annual regatta in June, where roughly 600 sailboats, big and small, line up for the contest. “The race is open for professionals and locals, and it’s fun to see all boats competing at the same time,” says Gentina, who joins the contest every year. “My family owns a sailboat, and we do it for fun, without pressure, just to be together.” Having fun on the water is part of Genevan DNA. Residents who live by the lake either own boats or lease them, and they sail all summer long. Visitors can rent yachts, paddleboats and kayaks, or try a number of other water attractions ranging from the leisurely to more adventurous. Want to float along the lake’s shimmering currents on rafts or wakeboards? You can rent them. Would you rather opt for a posh luxury cruise with a gourmet dinner instead? Tickets are on sale. Want to catch your own dinner in the lake’s crystal waters? There are fishing trips hosted all year long. Depending on the season,

the anglers can fish for pike, trout or other species, and the organizers provide fishing gear for adults and children. For those who crave something altogether different, like swimming and socializing at the same time, there’s Bains Des Paquis — a public beach and bathhouse. “It’s a place where you can meet all kinds of people,” Gentina says. “Everyone goes there.” The Great Genevan Buffalo Migration

Sheep aren’t the only animals visitors to Geneva may run into during their stay. On the way from Geneva airport to the city, travelers often do a double take when they spot huge humpbacked bulls in the distant fields. The creatures look just like the North American buffalos — and in fact, they are. Called “bison” in Switzerland, the animals were brought from North America over 20 years ago by a local farmer named Laurent Girardet, who fell in love with their might and vigor after a stay on a Canadian farm. Stronger and sturdier than cows, bison can roam the fields year-round without any special accommodation. Raised without chemicals and antibiotics, they yield tasty, nutritious meat, high in omega-3s that Westerns diets typically lack — a fact that the health-conscious Swiss appreciate. Bison steaks, burgers and terrine are all epicurean treats served in Geneva’s gourmet restaurants. “Although the market for it is a niche in comparison with beef,” Girardet says, “the demand is much greater than what we, Swiss breeders, can provide.”

JULY/AUGUST 2019

But bison also became a favorite tourist attraction that draws people from Geneva and beyond. Following Girardet’s example, other local farmers brought bison to their fields, and some even built Indian teepees on their ranches for a more authentic, American Wild West–themed overnight stay. Attracted by the animals and their unique migration story, the bison became another unconventional Geneva icon, so unexpected on the urban outskirts. The secret gardens of Carouge

Every city has its secrets. And it’s only fitting that Geneva’s most beautiful gems are hidden outdoors. They aren’t easy to find, however — unless you know the locals. Dubbed the Greenwich Village of Geneva, the district of Carouge is known for its exquisite Italian-style homes and their secret gardens. Today, Carouge is only a 10-minute ride from the city center, but centuries ago it was an independent flagship city of a different empire, and with a unique history and architecture. Carouge was founded in the 18th century by a neighboring king who failed to conquer Geneva and instead erected his own metropolis on the opposite side of the River Arve. Aimed to rival Geneva in beauty and prosperity, the new city was settled by artisans, craftsmen and workmen. To suit their needs, Carouge residents built their houses with inner yards for forging ironworks, sewing clothes, making jewelry or tending to vegetable gardens. “The architect’s concept was to

32

SELAMTAMAGAZINE.COM

build a city with an interior courtyard,” explains Carouge resident and tour guide Gianna Loredan. “So that when people came to Carouge, they would feel as if they were in another world.” Today, Carouge is still known for its crafty locals. Artisanal clothes and jewelry shops dot its streets while private gardens, turned from work spaces into leisure islands, still blossom inside the courtyards. They remain well-hidden from the street crowds, but some residents let in private tours on special arrangements. Because of the proximity to the river and the danger of floods, many dwellings in Carouge were built to spread over different levels, and some yards and gardens were set up on elevated platforms. The architects were so creative that even today, the designs never fail to leave the visitors in awe. One of Loredan’s favorites is a strikingly beautiful house where visitors enter at street level, walk up the stairs and suddenly find themselves in a suspended second-floor garden. The gardens create a microclimate where some flowers and trees last into late fall and winter. Shielded from the weather, they enjoy a longer season. And so do the homeowners. Even when frosts come, some Genevans can still sip their coffee in the outdoor enclaves, escaping from the urban maze into their scenic oases. “We’re still a city, not a countryside, but we have so many natural elements everyone can enjoy that sometimes you forget you are in an urban setting,” Gentina says. “Sometimes it does feel like you are one-on-one with nature.”

Makush Art Gallery A combination of an Italian restaurant and an art space in the center of Addis Ababa, Makush Art Gallery is a clever balance of culinary craftsmanship and contemporary artwork. The gallery features about 70 young and emerging artists and houses 650 pieces at any given time. The result is a varied and exciting selection, reflecting Ethiopia’s burgeoning art scene. Furthermore, the space is not only for local Ethiopians but expats and members of the Ethiopian diaspora are welcome to showcase their work, too. Such inclusion is not surprising given that Makush’s owner and founder, Tesfaye Hiwet, is a returnee from the US who opened this unique space in 2002 with a mission to promote Ethiopian art and culture throughout the country and abroad. To this end, Makush Art Gallery has participated in various international art expos and exhibitions across the world. In addition to the gallery, Makush also supports humanitarian causes, working in collaboration with embassies and NGOs. Monday-Sunday. 8AM-10PM. +251 91 189 0637.

National Museum of Ethiopia Ranked as one of the most important museums in sub-Saharan Africa, the National Museum of Ethiopia houses Ethiopia’s most fascinating treasures, giving a rich overview of the country’s history. The ground floor focuses on the ancient and medieval periods including such artefacts as an elaborate pre-1st-century-AD bronze oil lamp showing a dog chasing an ibex. There is also a collection of royal memorabilia, including Emperor Haile Selassie’s enormous carved wooden throne. While the museum is most known for its paleoanthropological section, home of the worldfamous Lucy skeleton, the museum also contains an important collection of art. The artwork on display ranges from centuries-old parchments to 20th-century works. The contemporary collection include abstract paintings by the late Afewerk Tekle, one of Ethiopian’s most distinguished artists. Monday-Sunday, 9AM-5.30PM. +251 11 111 7150 36

Addis Fine Art Described as one of the most important young galleries in the world by Artsy, Addis Fine Art is the capital’s leading contemporary gallery that focuses on the art of Ethiopia and its diaspora. Founded by Rakeb Sile and Mesai Haileleul, the gallery was conceived in 2013. Three years later, in January 2016, they opened the gallery’s main space in the heart of Addis Ababa with an innovative program of exhibitions, talks and events, featuring a diverse set of contemporary artists. The gallery quickly became the go-to place for Ethiopean art and, in October 2016, they opened a sister space in London to connect the artists with collectors in European markets. Participating in many international art fairs, from New York to Cape Town, Addis Fine Art continues to hit great heights for its championing of Africa’s under-represented, yet rich contemporary fine art scene. Future plans are to expand the gallery. This includes moving their international platform to London’s Cromwell Place in South Kensington, to focus on artists in the diaspora, and bring the local and diaspora narratives together.

With a focus on experimentation and education, an exciting variety of artwork can be found here, from sculpture and installations to photography series and paintings. One of the main things that this gallery specializes in is providing a platform for women in the arts. This includes hosting an annual exhibition dedicated to work by female artists. In addition to the exhibits, Laphto Art Gallery offers panel discussions among both local and international artists. With an aim to push the boundaries of art both geographically and culturally, the purpose of these panels is to bring art into the mainstream by bridging the gap between those who create and those who may not realize the positive impact art can have on their lives.

Shaded by trees in a green-painted villa, LeLa features work by contemporary visual artists with a focus on experimentation and innovation. The gallery was founded in 2006 by Lilly Sahle – who still shows visitors around personally. A diaspora member and former sound engineer from the States, Lilly was drawn back to Ethiopia in 2000, where she has been promoting Ethiopian and East African artists continuously for the last 19 years. At Lela, Lilly works to foster collaborations across disciplines, to promote the exchange of art with artists abroad, and to assist artists in working towards the realization of a project, from concept stage to final product. Between shows, the gallery features work from a variety of artists that the gallery represents. Most are graduates from Addis School of Fine Art, but there are also artists from elsewhere in East Africa including Abdalla Bashir from Sudan. Many of the artists have exhibited internationally, including Ephrem Solomon whose work was showcased at London’s Saatchi Gallery. Up-and-coming artists are also given opportunities, with Lilly ensuring that she has at least one show a year from someone new.

Gebre Kristos Desta Center One of Ethiopia’s leading artists, Gebre Kristos Desta helped bring Ethiopian art to the international stage. The story of Gebre Kristos is an interesting one. He spent the early part of his career, studying and working in Cologne, Germany. The artist then returned to Ethiopia to serve on the faculty of the School of Fine Arts and Design in Addis Ababa. For the last few years of his life, he went back to Germany, where 30 pieces of his work remained. Gebre Kristos died in 1981. With most of his work still in Germany, there was a concerted effort by the School of Fine Arts and Design to bring back the remaining 30 pieces to Ethiopia, which eventually succeeded. Part of the Addis Ababa University campus was redeveloped to accommodate the center and, in 2008, the gallery opened. The iconic artwork of Gebre Kristos has been on display in Addis Ababa’s Sidist Kilo neighborhood ever since. The center also serves as an educational space where emerging artists learn how the past and future can come together to create fresh and unique influences. Just as Gebre Kristos Desta pushed boundaries and merged styles, new artists are encouraged to do the same. Tuesday-Sunday, 9AM-5PM. +251 11 122 1695. www.gebrekristosdestacenter.org

Zoma Museum Created by one of Ethiopia’s most original and active artists, Elias Sime, Zoma Museum seeks to promote multidisciplinary contemporary art, facilitate international exchange between artists, and foster a culture of environmentally conscious art projects in Ethiopia. Listed by The New York Times as one of the top places to visit in Addis, Zoma is located in an extraordinary house made from mud, straw, and stone. Designed and sculpted by Elias himself, the design represents the museum’s philosophy of driving environmental sustainability through art. In addition to the ecological message, ZOMA is also committed to community, running artist-in-residence and education programs, alongside a second location in Harla, a small historic village near Dire Dawa. Regular exhibitions are held in the center’s showroom, showcasing cutting-edge ecological art centered around the gallery’s core message of environmental sustainability. There is also an open studio for visiting artists with creatives and collaborators coming to ZOMA from across the globe to connect with each other and learn how their work can influence both their culture and the world at large.

CAPE TOWN

AWAITS YOU

There is no better time to visit Cape Town, than now. With Ethiopian Airlines offering almost daily flights from Addis Ababa, access to South Africa’s Parliamentary Capital is now a mere flight away.

Welcome! We invite you to share in the blessings of this wonderful country of ours. Allow us to introduce you to our places of wonder – places that not only fill us with great pride, but that take our breath away time and time again. Allow us to share our favourite hangouts, restaurants, markets, hidden treasures and historical sites, that tell our rich cultural stories. Found along South Africa’s south western coast, Cape Town – or the Mother City as it is fondly known - is the second-largest city after Johannesburg. It is home to Robben Island, Table Mountain, scenic winelands, magnificent beaches, world-class restaurants and cosmopolitan lifestyles. A trip to Cape Town is incomplete if you don’t visit one of the city’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Robben Island. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee chose to mark this location for its “triumph of the human spirit”. Guided tours are offered by former prisoners, who give you a firsthand account of life on the island. Catch a ferry ride to “The Robben Island Museum”. The standard tour starts at the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront and the

tour will take around 3.5 hours in total (the boat ride is half-an-hour one way). The V&A Waterfront is situated in the heart of Cape Town, where the mountain meets the sea, and it has been a working harbour since 1860, when trade routes to the East transformed the seafront into a lucrative trading post. The V&A Waterfront is home to 450 retail outlets which offer everything from homeware and fashion to electronic gadgets and curios from local and international brands alike. And if the shopping becomes too much, you can enjoy some of the many other activities on offer. These include seal watching; a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium or the Maritime Museum; boat trips around the harbour and along the coast; or an exciting helicopter tour!


Eating out in Cape Town is easy - the city’s natural abundance of land and sea combined with cultural diversity ensure that there are menus to suit all palates, religious dietary requirements and price ranges. However, if it’s a home away from home meal you crave, then the Little Ethiopia Restaurant, owned by Ethiopian national Yeshi Mekonnen on Shortmarket Street will soothe you with divine servings of fresh injera, shiro, tibs, doro wot and vegetarian dishes.

the beat of the continent follows – whether it’s a nightclub in Cape Town’s Long Street, an African jazz concert in the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or the thump of a township ghetto blaster – it is an eclectic meeting of colorful people, contagious energy and endless appeal. We South Africans can’t live without some kind of catchy beat in the background.

But, you’d be missing out if you didn’t try our homegrown cuisine – we’re talking about a good old fashioned braaivleis (barbequed meat) or chisa nyama with all the trimmings, a Cape Malay curry to make your heart sing or an enormous platter of piri piri prawns served up with a view of the ocean. And when it comes to song and dance, you’d be hard pressed not to feel the rhythm of Africa when you visit our shores. Wherever you go,

Getting here Ethiopian Airlines offers daily flights from Addis Ababa to Cape Town. Tourists from Ethiopia require a visa when travelling to South Africa. If you are travelling with minors (18 years old and younger) please be sure to visit the SA Embassy website to ensure you have the correct documentation prior to applying for your travel visa.

Languages English is the primary language, widely spoken as a first, second or third language here! But to really get a feel of our people and our way of life, try using the local slang like “lekker” (nice); “yebo” (yes); and “Mzansi” (a popular local term for South Africa).

Where to stay From Cape Town’s waterfront hotels to luxury apartments along the beachfront, a variety of star graded accommodation options are available to suit all preferences and budgets. Visit the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa’s website for a catalogue of all quality assured establishments in Cape Town www.tourismgrading.co.za

Getting around There are many welcoming and accredited tour operators who can assist you with all your land arrangements. Alternatively, you may hire a car at the airport car rental offices.

The City with its vibrant, fascinating and rich history, culture and heritage; is ready to be explored, photographed, loved and remembered by you and your family. Cape Town is where you will enjoy so much more, for far less than you thought possible. Malkam guzo yehunelachu.

HAWKER CENTERS OFFER A FLAVORFUL JOURNEY THROUGH THE CULINARY MELTING POT THAT IS THE LION CITY

A

sk any Singaporean where the best hawker food is and you’re sure to spark a lively conversation as everyone has their own favourite food haunt. The Michelin Guide Singapore entered this debate in 2016, when its inaugural list gave one Michelin Star to Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. Run by hawker Chan Hon Meng, his hawker stall at Chinatown Food Complex sells chicken rice and noodles for only $2, making it the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred meal. Food reviewers rave about how Chan’s chicken meat is very tender and wrapped in crispy skin that has been roasted to perfection. Singapore’s hawker centres are culinary havens that give an excellent introduction to Singapore’s food culture. Home to many stalls, these open-air complexes sell a wide variety of cheap food. All Singaporeans, whether they’re rich or poor, are likely to crave Singaporean food. Singapore’s hawker history started in the 1800s, when street hawkers offered up cheap and delicious food. These street hawkers were often unhygienic, so the Singaporean government started a project to build hawker centres. 44

Between 1971 and 1986, the government built pavilions filled with concrete and tile stalls, each with electricity and water that made the buildings a hygienic new home for Singapore’s street hawkers. The hawker centers were built at housing estates, transportation hubs and other popular gathering places. Today, there are over 100 hawker centres all over Singapore, filled with more than 6,000 food stalls. These humble stalls provide not just nutrition for hungry Singaporeans, but are also important places where people bond over their favourite eats. Like most Singaporeans, I’ve always loved hawker food. As a child, one of the reasons I loved my father was because he would buy me carrot cake every night from the Bukit Timah Market hawker center. The name of the Singapore carrot cake is misleading because it isn’t made of carrots. Instead, it is made by frying cubes of rice flour with eggs.

TOP FOUR Chinatown Complex Food Center Excellently located in the heart of Chinatown, this is Singapore’s largest hawker center with over 260 food stalls, featuring a wide range of choice, right up to international craft beer at Smith Street Taps. Chinatown Complex is also home to Chhan Hon Meng’s stall ‘Liao Fan Hong Kong’, which was the first street-food establishment to be awarded a Michelin star. This also earned Chan Hon Meng the additional honour of being the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world (a portion of soya chicken rice costs roughly $1.42). 335 Smith St, Singapore 050335

Chomp Chomp Food Center A hawker center for late night diners, Chomp Chomp opens at 6pm and goes on until the early hours. Situated in the mostly residential Serangoon Gardens area, the food complex is celebrated for serving some of the best satay in Singapore – pork, beef, chicken and mutton satay are all available. BBQ sambal stingray, freshly barbecued chicken wings, fried hokkien mee and carrot cake are also very popular. A large glass of refreshing sugarcane juice makes for the perfect accompaniment. 20 Kensington Park Road, Singapore 557269

Singapore Hawker Centers

Tiong Bahru Market Hawker Center Recently renovated, Tiong Bahru Market Hawker Center is one of the cleanest and most spacious hawker centers in Singapore. The complex is located above the famous Tiong Bahru Wet Market, which throngs with every fresh produce possible. There are 85 hawker food stalls to choose from, with several stalls awarded Michelin Bib-Gourmand and The Plate awards. One of the best centers for breakfast and brunch (many stalls open at 7am), favourite stalls include Jian Bo Shui Kueh, with its steamed rice cakes topped with diced preserved radish and a dollop of chilli, and Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow, which is known for its sweet and spicy noodles. 30 Seng Poh Rd, Singapore 168898

Old Airport Road Food Center Built on the runway of Singapore’s old Kallang airport, the iconic Old Airport Road Food Center is one of the oldest and largest food courts in the island city. With over 150 stalls, serving all the popular Singaporean dishes, it’s a favorite of locals, both in terms of value and, more importantly, taste. Specialities here include the satay noodles, char kway teow and rojak (Indonesian fruit salad). The food center also houses some of the best soya beancurd stalls including the renowned Lao Ban Soya Beancurd and 51 Soya Beancurd ($1.50 per bowl for original flavour and S$2.00 per bowl for almond flavour). 51 Old Airport Rd, Singapore 390051

especially the deliciously sweet and savoury char keow teow (flat noodles in soya sauce fried with sausage and clams) and the crisp and fluffy prata (fried Indian pancake). One thing I love about Singapore is that these two of my favourite dishes are easily found in most Singaporean hawker centers, so it’s simple to get the fix for my food addictions. Since Singapore is a melting pot of Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures, for first time visitors I would probably take them to Chinatown Food Complex for Chinese hawker food, Adam Road Food Center for Malay food and Tekka Center for Indian food. Chinatown Food Complex is home to many great Chinese hawker stalls that sell dishes like black pepper crab, bak kut teh (herbal soup with pork ribs) and frog porridge. Little India’s Tekka Center is where I would bring visitors to enjoy fragrant curries. I would recommend the dum briyani (an Indian spiced rice dish with meat or vegetables) and Indian rojak (mixed fritters of dough, potato and shrimp). A good place for Malay food is Adam Road Food Center. This hawker center is famous for its nasi lemak (a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf, accompanied with omelette, fried fish and anchovies). There are a few good nasi lemak stalls at Adam Road Food Center but the most famous one is Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak. This is renowned because the Sultan of Brunei likes the nasi lemak there so much that he always gets his staff to buy a packet of nasi lemak for his breakfast whenever he’s visiting Singapore. Hawker centers are the best place in Singapore to explore the country’s rich food heritage. If you’re ever in Singapore, do visit a hawker center to get a taste of food paradise.

Introducing Corteva Agriscience: On June 1, Corteva Agriscience completed the planned separation from the parent holding company DowDuPont, to become a global agriculture company dedicated to seed, crop protection, and digital solutions headquartered in the United States.

Our Purpose:

To enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.

Our Values: · · · · · ·

Enrich Lives We commit to enhancing lives and the land Stand Tall We are leaders and act boldly Be Curious We innovate relentlessly Build Together We grow by working with others Be Upstanding We always do what’s right Live Safely We embrace safety and the environment in all we do

Creating One Company

The headquarters for Africa Middle East is in Pretoria, South Africa, and includes key support functions – Research & Development, supply chain, and sales and marketing capabilities. Sites in Casablanca, Morocco, Nairobi, Kenya and Cairo, Egypt serve as head office and business centres for North West Central Africa, East Africa and Egypt Middle East respectively. In Africa Middle East, Corteva Agriscience is bringing together DuPont Crop Protection, DuPont Pioneer, PANNAR SEED and Dow AgroSciences to create a market-shaping, stand-alone agriculture company with leading positions in seed technologies, crop protection and digital agriculture. Corteva Agriscience is a brand-new agriculture company with over 200 years’ experience. Built on a rich heritage of Dow Agrosciences, DuPont Crop Protection, Pioneer Hibred and PANNAR, we deliver innovative, farmer – first solutions to maximise every hectare. Enabling farmers to get the most out of every season. We will continue that great heritage and invest with the farmer in mind: building a future for generations to come. As a focused, stand-alone ag company, Corteva Agriscience will be better positioned to offer a complete solution to help growers maximize yield and profitability. This includes a broad and balanced portfolio of seed products -- including our flagship Pioneer® and PANNAR seed brands -- as well as trusted crop protection solutions and expanding agriculture software solutions.

Our Products:

The company is growing agriculture by offering farmers superior solutions, expanded choice and greater value: Seed Solutions: We sell seeds that make better food: alfalfa, canola, cereals, corn, cotton, rice, silage inoculants, sorghum, soybeans, sunflowers, wheat Crop Protection Solutions: We help farmers get higher yields by protecting crops and the environment: herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pasture and land management, seed applied technologies, urban pest management, turf and ornamental pest management Digital Services: We use data and analytics to make sure next year is even better: software for growers to build and sustain stronger businesses by maximizing yield with data-driven crop models, improving teamwork efficiency and communication, measuring profit down to the field-level and simplifying farmland research and transactions Agriculture is at a crossroads. Global production must increase by 70% to provide food security for all in 2050, and the industry must become sustainable in the face of climate change and declining natural resources. At the same time, consumer expectations for safe, abundant and nutritious food, are echoing all the way up the food system, putting unique demands on farmers. Innovations in science, technology and big data promise to revitalize farming, but demand vision, commitment and the ability to lean in to change at a time when the rise of conglomerates threatens to dilute industry stewardship. The stakes have never been higher. Failure to make agriculture fit for the demands of the 21st century won’t just impact a few countries or some people. It will affect security and stability worldwide and significantly impede human progress. Corteva Agriscience™, grows progress by putting farmers and consumers at the heart of agriculture, to reshape the industry for the 21st century. We believe that the future of farming depends on aligning the food chain from end to end, so that we can build agriculture into an industry that is financially secure, sustainable, innovative, and responsive. An industry with the ability to understand and react to global market demands, that can effectively harness science, technology and innovation to optimize productivity, and which has the expertise and resources to ensure its own longterm success in the face of challenge and change.

Africa’s High-Tech Safaris A few pioneering safari camps are implementing bleeding-edge technology in some of the world’s most challenging and remote landscapes to deliver an experience that’s better for their guests and the planet. Here, we look at the forerunners and their future-facing innovations with the hopes that others will follow suit BY N I CO L E T R I L IVAS

Sometimes, a trip off the grid is in order—literally. While some African camps and lodges are linked to the national power grid, others offer a completely unplugged experience. Wilderness Safaris, Africa’s leading ecotourism company, has nearly 40 camps and lodges in some of the world’s most isolated and untouched locations. This means that they’re often required to generate their own electricity. In a light-bulb moment, the fiercely eco-minded company vowed to move away from a reliance on fossil fuels and implement solar power wherever possible to lighten their footprint. Wilderness Safaris currently has 13 camps all over

Africa operating on 100-percent solar power and 34 camps with solar-inverter or battery-inverter hybrid systems. Also, with the implementation of solar thermodynamic geysers throughout all of their properties, they have continued to slash their reliance on generators, saving an estimated 1,071,101 liters of diesel every year.  The newly rebuilt Serra Cafema, in one of the most far-flung corners of Namibia, and Qorokwe Camp, in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, are two of the most recent top model members of the 100-percentsolar-power club. www.wilderness-safaris.com

NIGHT VISION

AI is the tech world’s buzzword of the moment, and South Africa’s Karkloof Safari Villas & Spa is bringing this buzzword to the bush with its newly implemented AI anti-poaching system. Colleen Glaeser is the owner of Karkloof Safari Villas & Spa, as well as Global Marketing Director of AxxonSoft, an industry-leading global security and surveillance company. Glaeser led the creation of the new anti-poaching technology, which is called Deep Learning, and it’s especially designed to be proactive rather than reactive. Glaeser found that in the past, anti-poaching units were arriving on the scene too late due in part to the existing surveillance system’s failures, as they were setting off too many false alarms. As such, the new Deep Learning technology has been designed to detect the difference between humans and animals to reduce the number of false alarms that are set off. This means that as soon as Deep Learning identifies a human threat, the surveillance team and guard center is notified so that they can dispatch the anti-poaching unit immediately. Cameras are used to classify where exactly the security breach has taken place, as well as to assess the threat level. So far, the AI initiative has proved very successful in preventing catastrophic acts of poaching. This technology currently covers over 2,000 acres of land, and it’s in the process of being rolled out across other crucial South African locations and beyond. www.karkloofsafarivillas.com

ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Twice-daily game drives in massive gas-guzzling 4x4s are unfortunately a standard aspect of most safaris, but Chobe Game Lodge in Botswana’s famous Chobe National Park, has found a way to make these drives a bit greener with the introduction of their revolutionary electric game fleet, which is made up of four electric vehicles and four electric boats. These clean vehicles are charged via the lodge’s Eco Workshop, which is lined with over 300 solar panels. Also, the roofs of the four electric boats are lined with solar panels as well, ensuring that a trip down the wildlife-packed Chobe River is mesmerizingly quiet and clean. Since the introduction of this electric fleet in 2014, Chobe Game Lodge has significantly lessened its impact on the environment with an estimated 100,000-kilogram reduction on their carbon dioxide emissions and countless advantages to the local wildlife population, who are no longer disturbed by noise pollution or the scent of petrol. And guests benefit too: Chobe Game Lodge safaris are nearly silent, smooth, and comfortable with no rattling and shuddering engines to unsettle you or the delicate environment. www.chobegamelodge.com

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Nighttime game drives are one of the most fascinating ways to observe African wildlife—if you can manage to see in the darkness, that is. Mara Bushtops, in Kenya’s dramatically breathtaking Masai Mara, has found a way to add some light to the situation by employing heat-seeking night-vision cameras to search for nocturnal animals that aren’t visible during daytime hours. Specially converted safari vehicles and rangers outfitted with the state-of-the-art cameras roam the moonlit Masai Mara for fauna-like springhares, bat-eared foxes, and even lions, hyenas, and leopards, as they may be found hunting at night. The forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras transmit images to individual monitors set on the back of each of the vehicle’s seatbacks, providing the passengers with real-time night vision. Normally, night game drives aren’t permitted in Masai Mara or the Serengeti, but because Mara Bushtops is located amid their own Bushtops Conservancy, these future-forward nocturnal safaris are a go. www.bushtopscamps.com/mara/

hina’s third largest city, Guangzhou, on the sprawling Pearl River Delta, is a vibrant metropolis where past and present come together. Once known as Canton, Western influences first took root in China here and colonial architecture still dots the city alongside avant-garde landmarks. Guangzhou is also the birthplace of Cantonese cuisine and the homeland of dim sum. The leafy streets host a thriving shopping scene, too, in between the excellent museums, mosques and temples, distinctive qílóu shophouses and L ngnán architecture.

west Guangzhou, a short drive away, and stroll through Qingping, one of China’s oldest outdoor traditional medicine markets. With open-fronted vendors arranged beneath an arcade and in the tiny alleys behind, traders offer countless restorative tonic essentials such as ginseng, goji berries, antler, dried seahorses, chrysanthemums and deers’ tails. Don’t miss Fengyuan Road, just behind the market, where people play mah-jong in lanes surrounded by traditional Xiguan-style Guangzhou houses.

12 p.m. Continue exploring with a

wander down Shangxiajiu, a few blocks away. The first commercial pedestrian street in Guangzhou, which officially opened in 1995, both sides of the street are lined with shops of every kind plus several malls. It’s also worth meandering down the alleys and laneways to discover the more traditional shops, markets, and street snacks. 2 p.m. Guangzhou is considered the

home of dim sum. And there’s no better

place to go for Yum Cha (a meal of dim sum and hot tea) than Panxi, one of Guangzhou’s most famous traditional Cantonese eateries. Established in 1947, Panxi is set in ornamental gardens on the edge of Liwan Lake. Delicious dim sum, shaped as echidnas, tiny pigs, birds and eggplants complement Panxi’s signature dishes of roast goose and barbecued suckling pig. 3.30 p.m. Now, it’s time to hit the

museums. Head to Yuexiu Park, an uphill trek but worth it. Historical landmarks line the way: the huge granite Five Rams Statue (a Guangzhou city symbol), a surviving piece of a Ming dynasty wall and a 13th-century five-storey red watchtower that is

The tree-lined boulevards are awash with pretty gardens, colonial buildings, galleries and charming cafés (Kafelaku, in an old colonial mansion, serves the best coffee). Make a stop at the park in the centre of the island where you can relax on one of the benches and watch locals practicing tai chi.

now the Guangzhou City Museum. Just outside is the 2,000-year-old Mausoleum of the Nanyue King. The presentation of relics buried with the king, Zhao Mo, is superb, including a jade burial suit. Alternatively, there’s the Chen Clan Ancestral Hall, built in 1894 for the Qing Dynasty by the powerful Chen Clans, which now houses the impressive Guangdong Folk Art Museum. One of the best preserved and most beautiful ancestral buildings in South China, the complex is huge with 19 ornately decorated buildings connected by courtyards. 6.30 p.m. As sunset falls, scale the

dizzying heights of the Canton Tower. Built for the 2010 Asian games, this 604m cloud-piercing edifice is the unmistakable symbol of new China. Go up to the observation deck for an incredible bird’s-eye view of the city. The Canton Tower is also noted for its unique design. The Dutch architects were inspired by the bones of the

female hip joint, creating a slim waist in the middle of the tower reflecting the shape of a lady twisting her waist while looking behind. 7.30 p.m. Guangzhou has a fantastic

food scene. Make your way to Huangsha Fish Market, one of the biggest fish markets in southern

China, where restaurants in the market building will cook the seafood you’ve just bought downstairs. The city is also fast raking in Michelin stars with eight restaurants awarded their first star last year – try BingSheng Private Kitchen which serves Canto classics with a creative twist in an elegant dining space. 9.30 p.m. Finish the day with a night

Guangzhou Opera House, one of the three biggest theatres in China

cruise down the Pearl River. After dark, Guangzhou is at its most beautiful as twinkling buildings illuminate the night sky and the Canton Tower glows in a rainbow of colours. Snaking through the heart of the city, the Pearl River runs alongside Guangzhou’s architectural hotspots, including Dame Zaha Hadid’s extraordinary Opera House and the historic Huangpu Military Academy.

Istanbul Coffee Festival Turkey's celebration of coffee returns to Istanbul this fall

I

n 1555, after journeying for weeks, two Syrian traders Shams of Damascus and Hakem of Aleppo arrived in Istanbul. They settled close to the silver waters of the Golden Horn and opened the city’s first coffee house in the Tahtakale district. By the mid-17th century, coffee had become an essential part of the Ottoman Court’s elaborate ceremonies with 40 coffee-makers on hand to prepare a brew for the sultan. The coffee ritual also played a role in marriage customs to an extent that women in the harem received thorough training regarding how the perfect brew was to be prepared. As such, Turkish men selected a wife based on their coffee-making skills. Even today, when a prospective husband’s family asks the girl’s parents for her hand in marriage, Turkish coffee is served by the bride-to-be. Five centuries later, Turkish coffee (Türk kahvesi) continues to celebrated, with a mix of kahvehans (traditional coffeehouses) and hip coffee bars. Furthermore, this September, the smell of freshly-brewed coffee will take over the capital as the Istanbul Coffee Festival returns to the city for the fifth time. One of Europe’s biggest coffee festivals, the four-day event highlights Istanbul’s rich cultural diversity, bringing together speciality coffee from across the world. Tens of thousands of caffeine lovers and connoisseurs will once again descend to try different blends and brews alongside learning about the latest roasting and brewing technology. Showcasing the journey from the humble bean to an expertly-frothed cup ‘o joe, there will be different coffee experiences and the chance to take part in tasting workshops and professional coffee brewing sessions. There will also be seminars related to coffee, live performances and talks with coffee experts and

the world’s leading baristas. Global producers and coffee machine manufacturers as well as brewers, retailers, coffee bars, chocolatiers and boutique coffee shop owners from across the globe will be on hand to introduce the latest trends in all things coffee. One of the many highlights is the Turkish Coffee Championship. Contestants compete in five categories: Barista, Latte Art, Coffee Brewing, Coffee Roasting, and Coffee Pot Making. To accompany the coffee, there are stalls aplenty, serving an enticing selection of delicious Turkish delicacies, including succulent kebabs, flavoursome mezes and freshly-caught fish which are the city’s signature dishes. Performances from an exciting line-up of local artists and bands make for excellent entertainment. The first annual Istanbul Coffee Festival took place at Galata Greek School. Since then, the festival has grown and now takes place in KucukCiftlik Park, which doubles up as a concert hall with the likes of Joss Stone, Enrique Iglesias, and Lana Del Rey performing. When festival goers have had their fill of coffee, there is plenty to explore in KucukCiftlik Park and the surrounding areas, which are home to many wonderful shops. Alongside bags of coffee, visitors can snap up fine Turkish clothing, authentic rugs and exquisite carpets that are only made in Turkey. Either way, when it comes to drinking coffee, the most important part is to channel the Turkish philosophy of keyif – taking life easy.

The Istanbul Coffee Festival runs from 20th-23rd September 2019. www.istanbulcoffeefestival.com.tr
