Tewolde GebreMariam Chief Executive Officer, Ethiopian Airlines

llow me to first wish you and your loved ones all the best for 2015. As we assess 2014, we’re proud of the ways our world-class service has been recognized: Ethiopian received “Airline of the Year” (its third year in a row) by the African Airlines Association and “Best Airline in Africa” by Premier Traveler magazine. Several prominent personalities also chose to fly with us. In particular, we were honored by the chance to serve Irish President Dr. Michael Higgins and the First Lady on board both international and domestic flights. During the president’s visit, Ethiopia and Ireland signed a bilateral air service agreement that will enable us to start three weekly flights to Dublin and Los Angeles in June. These flights will be the first direct-air connection between Africa and Ireland, as well as Africa and the U.S. West Coast. In April, we will also begin service to Tokyo — the first air connection between Japan and sub-Saharan Africa. All together, these new flights come at an opportune time when Ethiopia’s wealth of natural, historical and cultural sites are open for tourism. Our efforts to provide the best possible travel experience also go beyond our route expansion plans. Last month, we launched a mobile Short Message System to give you easy access to flight information and track your cargo shipment. And to enhance our main hub in Addis Ababa, expansion of the Bole International Airport Terminal is now in full swing. Once completed, the terminal will be able to accommodate 22 million passengers annually — three times its current capacity — and provide for a seamless, hassle-free on-ground experience. As the largest cargo operator in Africa, we are also working to enhance our freighter service by phasing in modern fleet, building state-of-the-art infrastructure, availing more freighter routes, and deploying the latest information-technology tools. We have also phased-in our 10th B787 Dreamliner, which has become our core fleet on mid- and long-range routes. Thanks to its unique features — the biggest windows in the sky, a high ceiling, humid cabin air and less noise — it has proven exceptionally popular among our customers. As we welcome 2015, we are excited about the great prospects ahead with new routes, new fleet, and new products and features, all with a view to serve you better. In the New Year, we pledge to work even harder to meet your high expectations and earn your business. Thank you for choosing to fly with us.

Ethiopian Airlines, the largest and most profitable airline in Africa, was recently awarded the title “African Airline of the Year” for the third year in a row by the African Airlines Association. “We are highly honored for this recognition by sisterly airlines in Africa,” said Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, who accepted the award recognizing the airline for its exceptional results, consistent profitability and sound business strategy in 2013. He attributed success to the more than 8,000 employees at Ethiopian, the airline’s valued customers, and the soundness of its Vision 2025 growth strategy. “Although Africa is registering rapid economic and travel growth, this growth is primarily benefiting nonAfrican carriers,” he said, adding that the times are challenging for African airlines, and that their survival rests on two things happening quickly: African airliners creating collaborative partnerships across the continent, and Africa becoming a single unified market without restriction for African airlines. “The continued fragmentation of our skies is only benefiting foreign carriers and will lead to our certain demise,” he noted, calling upon the African governments to “act now and fast to unify African skies, which would also give great impetus to the continent’s economic integration.” Ethiopian is a global Pan-African carrier currently serving five continents with over 200 daily flights. In August 2014, the airline also received its second award in a row for “Best in Africa” by the Passenger Choice Awards, the most comprehensive survey in the industry.

As an aviation technology leader in Africa, Ethiopian was the first airline outside of Japan to receive and operate the Dreamliner and the first in Africa to receive and operate the B777-200 LR. Ethiopian continues to expand its fleet capacity and cargo terminal while also replacing its old aircraft with the latest and most environmentally friendly airplanes.

Had the honor of serving Irish President Dr. Michael F. Higgins as well as World Bank President Dr. Jim Yong Kim in late 2014. Ethiopian CEO Tewolde GebreMariam credited the airline’s domestic network for enabling “broad-based, decentralized and allinclusive socioeconomic development throughout the country by availing the necessary air connectivity for the flow of tourism, trade and investment.”

Celebrated its 10-year partnership with CFM, the world’s leading aircraft engine manufacturer. Today, the airline operates a fleet of CFM56-7B-powered Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft, and it recently ordered LEAP-1B engines for 20 15-option Boeing 737 MAX aircraft (scheduled to begin delivery in 2018).

DOING GOOD

GREAT ETHIOPIAN RUN Ethiopian Airlines wishes to congratulate Azmeraw Bekele and Wude Ayalew, the men’s and women’s victors of the 2014 Great Ethiopian Run — an international 10-kilometer road race held in Addis Ababa each November. Bekele won his second title, following his first win in 2010, and Ayalew became the first athlete in the race’s 14-year history to win three titles, having triumphed previously in 2007 and 2008. Roughly 36,000 participants took part in the race, which was established in 2001 by four Ethiopian Olympians (Haile Gebrselassie, Derartu Tulu, Kenenisa Bekele and Meseret Defar) together with Kenya’s world marathon champion, Edna Kiplagat. Ethiopian Airlines has sponsored the Great Ethiopian Run since 2006, displaying its affinity for the sport of running and its ongoing commitment to athletics.

BUY OR SELL Ethiopia’s top online marketplaces.

Although e-commerce has been slow to catch on in Ethiopia, a number of online marketplaces allowing users to buy and sell from each other are steadily gaining popularity. Last year, two new websites backed by international e-commerce conglomerate Rocket Internet even entered Addis Ababa’s online classifieds market, confirming the potential of this sector within Ethiopia’s nascent digital economy.

General Products

Vehicles

Real Estate

Electronics

Delala.com

Mekina.net

Betoch.net

Sheger.net

Delala is an Amharic word meaning “broker,” and in Ethiopia one can find a delala for almost anything. True to its name, Delala.com features a wide range of goods for sale by individuals and small businesses, as well as tenders and job listings. Launched in 2013 by 28-year-old Mohammed Berkhdle, Delala.com has already become one of the most trafficked websites in Ethiopia.

A glance at the website or Facebook page of Mekina.net provides a real-time picture of the huge demand for secondhand cars in Addis Ababa. With over 67,000 Facebook fans and an active user base, this marketplace has become Ethiopia’s go-to destination to buy or sell vehicles online. World Startup Report also rated the site Ethiopia’s second most valuable Internet company.

Featuring hundreds of listings for commercial and residential real estate, Betoch.net provides a great starting point for anyone looking to buy, sell or rent property in Addis Ababa. All listings on the site feature photographs alongside pricing and location information, making it easy to survey the Addis property market from the comfort of a web browser.

Many Addis Ababa residents have hopped on the global trend of continually upgrading their mobile phones and computing devices. Sheger. net tapped into this reality by creating an online market for Addis residents to trade popular consumer electronics, including Apple, Samsung and Sony products.

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

Hon Suilma Hay Emhamed Saleh - 2nd 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.

Intel Brings Tech Training to Kenyan Women

Since entering the Ethiopian market in 2011, global beer giant Heineken has sought ways to build strong links to the country’s economy. A key part of its strategy has been the company’s CREATE program, which supports local smallholder farmers in the production of malt barley. Because of this partnership, Heineken’s Ethiopian breweries — whose brands include Walia, Bedele and Harar — now source nearly half of their barley locally. After only two years in operation, the CREATE program already supports 6,000 Ethiopian farmers; by 2017, the company hopes to see that number increase to 20,000.

GE Africa, the Pan-African division of General Electric, recently launched a new sustainability initiative. Called “GE Kujenga,” (kujenga means “build” in Swahili), the program spans a wide range of projects , including charitable donations, leadership development programs, supplier development schemes, innovation competitions, research projects and investments in African firms. Through all of them, the company hopes to show its long-term commitment to the development of Africa — a continent that poses major growth potential for GE’s infrastructure, health care, energy and transportation businesses.

Although Intel is primarily known for producing microchips that power computers and mobile phones, the company has also taken a strong interest in helping people access the devices that use its products. In April of last year, the company launched the “Intel She Will Connect” program, with the intention of training thousands of young African women to use computers and software tools. The program was created in response to a study that found women in Africa are 45 percent less likely than men to have access to the Internet. By connecting 5 million women to its digital-literacy program by 2017, Intel hopes to help reduce this digital gender gap by 50 percent in sub-Saharan Africa.

ADDIS 2014 FOTO FEST For the first week of December 2014, nearly 40 international photographers gathered in Addis Ababa, transforming the Ethiopian capital into a giant exhibition space for contemporary photography. The third edition of the Addis Foto Fest consisted of showcases, portfolio reviews, workshops, panel discussions and film screenings, all with an eye toward presenting the true and diverse images of Africa to the world. “Africa in its diversity, heritage and history has much to offer in terms of contemporary art and culture,” wrote photographer Aida Muluneh, who founded the biennial festival in 2010. By featuring the work of photographers from the Americas, Asia and the Middle East alongside those from 17 African countries, she says her main objective was to bring the world to Africa and Africa to the world through images — from photojournalism to fine art. addisfotofest.com 22

Grand castles, strangely reminiscent of medieval Europe, hide behind thick walls in Ethiopia’s northwestern region. At first glance, only shadows of a past culture linger in this section of the ancient city of Gondar. Yet the castle compound offers a curious, however quiet, addition to the otherwise lively town surrounding it. Transformed by many hands throughout its history, Gondar — nicknamed the “Camelot of Africa” — stands as a beacon of Ethiopia’s bygone age, from royal and religious roots to cultural crossings and clashes. Wedged between rich natural resources, access to the Red Sea, and powerful neighbors such as Sudan and Egypt, Gondar found its ideal location in the foothills of the Simien Mountains. This, paired with an elevation that repelled mosquitos and thus malaria, made it the perfect spot for a major city center. Yet founding a permanent city at this time was unusual for Ethiopian rulers, who tended to move their royal camps frequently; when King Fasiledes (in power

Each of the Ethiopian emperors who followed in the 17th and mid-18th centuries left his own structural signature, creating the royal compound known as Fasil Ghebbi. Stepping into the usually isolated complex gives pause to the urban sounds of the surrounding town. Only the echoes of daily prayers ring through the

44 churches are rumored to have existed in the city. Hiding above several doorways in King Fasiledes’ palace complex, for example, a Star of David tells visitors of the ruler’s claim to the line of King Solomon. Laden with symbolism, the entry gate resembles the Lion of Judah, and 12 rounded towers enfolding one church represent the Bible’s Twelve Apostles.

Christianity was grafted into Gondarine architecture and life, and today, the city remains a central hub of the Ethiopian Orthodox Christian Church, as well as the homeland of many Ethiopian Jews. As Gondar offered sophisticated education and religious training, it thrived. Just in Fasiledes’ lifetime, Gondar’s population boomed to 65,000, making it the largest Ethiopian city for almost two centuries. Seated at the junction of caravan routes between north and south, Gondar watched as the flowing

trade of cross-cultural goods and ideas shaped its lifestyle — bringing various practices to the region. (Even today, the city’s most well-known artisans represent Jewish and Muslim minority groups.) Allegedly constructed by an Indian architect, Fasiledes’ first castle boasts Portuguese, Moorish and Ethiopia’s own Aksumite influences within the intricacies of its walls. Later castles mimic the baroque architectural style practiced by Portuguese Jesuit missionaries. Generations later, Ethiopian ruler Iyasu I adorned his decadent palace with Continued on p. 36

But no matter how impressive they remain, these castles and their city have suffered their fair share of hardship and damage. In 1704, an earthquake nearly reduced Gondar to rubble.

Italian invaders with bombs threatened the remaining buildings. Yet these incidents have become intrinsically valuable to the structure, and even to the folklore, of the city. Italy’s occupation during WWII, for example, changed the city’s layout: A piazza now functions as the center of town, just steps from the royal enclosure.

Gondar’s endurance despite attack. According to legend, when the Mahdist Dervish invaders approached the church — the only one to survive — a swarm of bees descended on the compound and the Archangel Michael himself stood before the wooden gates, protecting the grounds from harm. In an effort to preserve the structures of Gondar, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization granted Fasil Ghebbi World Heritage status in 1979. Since then, UNESCO has

lobbied to protect Gondar’s worth, devising plans to restore the site. By preserving the castles, the core of Gondar’s narrative continues — a finely spun tapestry, flecked with the colors of turmoil and success. And while it has kept quiet for centuries, Gondar’s fortress now welcomes visitors, ready to tell its tale. —Hannah Jordan is a writer based in Charlottesville, Virginia, with a penchant for travel and good stories.

The 200th anniversary of Vienna’s ball culture celebrates a storied tradition. BY CANDACE ROSE RARDON

january/february 2015

It is the second of October, 1814 — a Sunday evening in Vienna, Austria. In the expansive, gilded ballroom of the Hofburg Imperial Palace, some 8,000 candles burn brightly, along with countless crystal chandeliers. A profusion of flowers lines the central staircase, and swathes of gold and red velvet grace the galleries and balconies. At the sounding of trumpets, some 10,000 masked guests gathered at the palace turn their attention to the royalty now entering the room: emperors and princes, tsars and kings, their partners dressed in elegant gowns of satin and lace. And so with their arrival does the Grand Ball of the Congress of Vienna begin.

ROYAL ROOTS As author and historian David King writes in Vienna, 1814, “Vienna was the heart of Europe” both geographically and culturally. And thus it was only fitting that this city would host the Congress of Vienna — a historic peace conference. And only fitting that such a gathering would be celebrated with a ball. At the heart of Vienna itself, both then and now, is a love for the arts. Since the late 18th century — when classical composers such as Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven lived and worked in the city — Vienna has grown into a true capital of culture, giving rise to a vast array of art museums and opera houses,


The history of Vienna’s balls extends into the present; Fête Impériale guests arrive to the Hofburg Palace via horsedrawn carriage, and young debutantes grace the streets outside.

symphony orchestras and ballet companies, as well as the triple-time dance known today as the Viennese Waltz. But it is Vienna’s extravagant ball culture that could perhaps be considered the culmination of these various creative fields — a storied tradition that celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2014. In fact, history reveals that the tradition’s roots dig even deeper than that lavish affair at the Hofburg Palace. Joseph II, who served as Holy Roman Emperor and head of the Hapsburg Empire in the late 1700s, held an uncommon respect for the common man. He advocated for a range of reforms such as elementary education and the freedom of serfs; and in 1773, he even opened the ballrooms of the Hofburg Palace to the public.

A popular peasant dance in that period, the waltz had previously not been accepted among higher society and was even prohibited in places, given that it required participants to dance in partners and with close body contact. So it was the commoners themselves who introduced the waltz to the aristocrats and more elite classes. By the time Europe’s royalty, diplomats and an estimated 100,000 other visitors converged in Vienna for the 1814 peace conference, the waltz had risen to fashion and the ball culture was on its way to becoming a fixture of Austrian society — so much so that Emperor Francis I established a Festivals Committee to ensure proper entertainment for the Congress. The committee supplied a lively schedule of balls, banquets and masquerades, which no doubt slowed down the conference’s proceedings. (In fact,

at one point that November, an Austrian diplomat named Prince de Linge remarked in a letter, “Le congrès danse, mais il ne marche pas,” meaning, “The Congress dances much, but it doesn’t progress.”) From the mid-1800s onward, balls and the waltz were inextricably linked in Vienna. The Strauss family of composers rose to fame at this time with the now-iconic “By the Beautiful Blue Danube” as well as countless other waltzes, polkas and the like. And as Nicholas Parsons records in Vienna: A Cultural History, on any given night, “up to a quarter of [the city’s] three hundred thousand inhabitants might be found in establishments with music and dancing.”

MODERN-DAY MASQUERADES A number of political conflicts disrupted life during the 19th and 20th centuries, putting a pause on cultural events such as balls. The revolutions against the AustroHungarian Empire in 1848 and both World Wars, in particular, devastated the city. And yet the majority of balls still held today were officially founded during the 1920s and ’30s. Now more than 450 annual balls take place. Professional and trade groups organize a number of the events, giving their name to each — from the Pharmacist’s Ball and the Blumenball (Florist’s Ball) to the Ball of the Viennese Coffee House Owners. And with many guests often not arriving before midnight, these lavish affairs frequently last until dawn, when it’s customary to end the night with a bowl of spicy goulash soup at a nearby café. One of the oldest and most legendary events is the Vienna Opera Ball, held every February in the State Opera House. The Hofburg (A forerunner of the event occurred Palace’s gilded as early as 1877.) ballroom inspires On that one evening, nearly 5,000 gala guests perhaps as much today as during its first ball 200 years ago.

guests adhere to a strict formal dress code — floorlength evening gowns for women, black tuxedo and tails for men. Even the president of Austria himself attends, to open the festivities. “Balls belong to Vienna like the Fashion Week to New York or the Carnival to Rio de Janeiro. The Viennese love their balls,” says Eva Dintsis, secretary general of the Opera Ball. Most of the other balls likewise occur in January and February during A couple revels the Carnival season (known regionally in the opening as Fasching), but a few events also keep dance of the Fête the city waltzing through the spring Impériale, held in and summer. the Spanish Riding The Fête Impériale (or the Summer School’s arena. Ball of the Spanish Riding School) takes place in June, with its 2,500 guests dancing in an open-aired courtyard of the Hofburg. The Life Ball, founded in 1993 and held every May, happens to be Europe’s biggest charity event for those with HIV and AIDS. Instead of ball gowns and black-tie dress, many of its 3,780 guests — including international celebrities — arrive in eclectic costumes relating to that year’s theme, ranging in the past from “Air” to “1,001 Arabian Nights” to “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” Altogether, from the classic to the contemporary, Vienna’s balls give the city the chance to dance for more than 2,000 hours each year.

COME ONE, COME ALL While much has changed about Viennese ball culture since that inaugural Sunday evening in 1814, one essential element has stayed very much the same: the spirit of inclusivity with which Joseph II first opened the doors of the Hofburg Palace. Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket may attend today’s extravaganzas, including foreign visitors. And taking part in the ball season remains an important tradition for Viennese locals. “It is a must for many young people here to go to as many balls as possible every season,” confirms Professor Thomas Schäfer-Elmayer, third-generation director of Tanzschule Elmayer, the city’s most distinguished dancing school. As the invitation to dance is officially announced during each opening ceremony — “Alles Walzer,” or, “Everyone waltz!” — elegant young couples swirl across the ballroom floor and history comes to life again. Two-hundred years and countless celebrations later, Vienna remains on its toes.

“I love the noise in the same way that I revel in a good storm,” says Cam McLeay, owner of this little slice of heaven in the middle of nowhere: Uganda’s awardwinning Wildwaters Lodge. Fascinated by the Nile River from an early age, McLeay in 1996 led a team of adventurers in the first known descent of the river in Uganda, before co-founding

a commercial rafting company there. (He has since been described as one of the globe’s best whitewater rafters.) A decade later, McLeay led the first expedition to trace the Nile through five countries, from its mouth to its source in Rwanda’s Nyungwe rainforest. Having spent so much time on what’s considered to be the world’s longest river,

at some 6,650 kilometers, McLeay became passionate about preserving as much of it as possible while also supporting local Ugandans. He decided to build a lodge, aiming to employ workers from surrounding communities during construction and to run the resort long-term. It took three years to obtain approval from Uganda’s National Environment

Everything at Wildwaters Lodge was crafted using local materials and traditional techniques — from the 10 guest suites to the restaurant (opposite page), situated dramatically along one of the Nile’s rapids.

Management Authority and the World Bank to build on Munyanja Island, located roughly 90 minutes from the capital of Kampala. About 150 locals joined in the daunting work of constructing Wildwaters between two extreme rapids. Most of the materials, including gum poles up to 8 meters long, were ferried to Munyanja in wooden canoes that guests today use to reach the resort, opened in 2010. “We used very few drawings, and the design constantly evolved,” says Cam’s brother, Brad, who served as co-architect, engineer and project manager. “Despite the challenges, Cam and I thrived on the organic design and construction.”

Today, elevated wooden walkways link Wildwaters’ 10 suites, all given local names and boasting spacious beds and washbasins carved from Munyanja’s pink granite. As guests weave throughout the lush, acacia-strewn grounds, they can encounter African grey parrots, African fish eagles or crested cranes (Uganda’s national bird). More than 50 bird species have been identified, and a Whitethroated cormorant frequently surfs the rapids in front of the lodge’s restaurant. Situated near one of the two rapids, the restaurant’s setting is dramatic yet peaceful, inviting guests to gaze upon the rolling hills across the Nile while dining on a five-course meal. Dishes such as seared tilapia topped with lemongrass and ginger, as well as ravioli stuffed with potato, roasted red onion and thyme, entertain palates as much as the setting does the spirit. “You really feel as if you are deep in the wilderness,” says Sian Wynne, a Brit living in Uganda who recently took her parents to the resort. “Everywhere around you are birds and butterflies and, beyond the white waters, the beautifully lush green banks of the Nile. “The weekend was a complete escape.” Besides sipping sundowners in the lodge’s rock pool, guests might be pampered with a spa or facial, enjoy a guided walk around the island, or share a beer with locals back on the mainland.

The highlight of my own Wildwaters weekend, though, was being given a turn at the tiller — in the manner of screen goddess Katharine Hepburn — on one of the original boats used in the 1951 Hollywood classic film The African Queen. In 2010, Cam discovered the old, diesel-powered boat languishing in a Nairobi garden trailer. He tracked it down, “took a punt on the investment”

and had it restored. Now, the boat’s skipper — dressed as Oscar-winning actor Humphrey Bogart — runs 45-minute tours of the river. Though my trip revealed no sign of the 2,000 cigarettes or tinned grub that Bogart boasts about onscreen, I was thrilled with the obligatory two cases of Gordon’s gin kept in stock. “It is quite magical, steaming into the sunset,” says Cam. “I find my thoughts wandering back a century when I am on board.”

About half the visitors to Wildwaters are locals, according to Cam, although international tourists are increasingly being drawn to the lodge for its intimate, secluded nature and stylish appeal. “With hardly a dozen cabins it is never crowded, so you don’t get that ‘tourist-with-a-to-do-list’ feeling,” says Chris Luwaga, a Ugandan who lives in Kampala. In 2013, the lodge was presented with the TripAdvisor Excellence award, which recognizes certain accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently show a commitment to hospitality excellence. And of course there’s the sound of the water. Some guests have even remarked that a month after leaving, they can still hear the turbulent rapids, proving that although a stay at Wildwaters may fly by too quickly, it’s an experience that lingers for a long time to come.

abu Fakude used to be regularly arrested for his graffiti, bright splashes of color spraypainted without permission on the walls of Johannesburg’s buildings. “In order to be a respected artist, you don’t ask permission,” he says, explaining the gist of graffiti culture. “The only way to be famous is to be notorious.” But recently, the 21-year-old street artist has watched his work become more and more welcome across Johannesburg, a city that’s developing an unusually positive attitude toward street art — the result of a combination of government acceptance and property developers who see it as an edgy attraction. Today, the mix of clandestine and commissioned work has made the city a place to see some of the world’s best graffiti. In Maboneng Precinct, a district on Johannesburg’s east side where graffiti is especially celebrated, commissioned works by South African masters run side by side with pieces completed by international graffiti stars. A King Kong–sized piece by Spanish artist Remed, a guardian with a spear, watches over the city. Fifty meters west, the signature wire-like animal paintings by DALeast, an artist based in Cape Town, appear to leap off the walls. These spirals of black, white and gray paint look like three-dimensional sculptures of jumping springbok — the bouncy, deer-like animal that also serves as the mascot for the country’s rugby team.

the street art,” says Hannelie Coetzee, a 42-year-old artist living in Maboneng. “It’s a completely contemporary art attraction.” Graffiti in South Africa started in the Cape Flats in the mid-’80s, when the townships outside Cape Town embraced the music, lifestyle and spray paint of hip-hop culture. Over time, though, the conservative city thought graffiti distasteful and so implemented strict bylaws prohibiting it. Meanwhile, the hip-hop trend began to flourish in Johannesburg. The city’s lawmakers have even embraced the art, collaborating on citywide projects such as the Back to the City Festival, a government-subsidized day of “live music, street art and break dancing.” It helps, too, that the city appears as

a blank canvas, with its never-ending blocks of abandoned buildings — a side effect of the 1990s post-apartheid urban exodus, when thousands of people fled the cities in favor of gated suburbs. “If we paint something somewhere in Europe, the very next day our picture could be painted over,” says Rasty, a 31-year-old graffiti artist. “Here, if we paint, two years later it will still be there.” The permanence is a boon to Fakude, who also works as a graffiti tour guide, walking through downtown Johannesburg neighborhoods showing both illegal and commissioned graffiti. Fakude ends his tour in Newtown, an inner-city cultural hub with museums and music venues. “This is my masterpiece,” he says,

standing arms outstretched in front of a huge blue-and-red wall, where a oneeyed figure holding two white flags stares down a gun barrel. “I called him ‘the cloud man,’” Fakude says. “He stands for peace.” More and more companies are now approaching the artist to commission work for their external walls — yet another sign of graffiti’s evolution from a shady medium to one that’s widely accepted and even celebrated. For Fakude, that means less time in jail and more money for his art. But he’ll never forget his roots, he says. After all, to be famous is to be notorious. —Stephanie Findlay is a freelance journalist living in Johannesburg.

Hill of Flowers

Ben Abeba restaurant pierces the Lalibelan sky.

ike most tourists, my dad and I visited Lalibela, Ethiopia, with the intent of marveling at its roughly 900-year-old churches chiseled from stone. Just before arriving in the small town, though, I added another agenda item to our list: to eat at Ben Abeba, a hybrid restaurant popular for its remarkable design and food. When visiting other countries, my family makes a point to eat locally. So after reading about Ben Abeba in a guide book, I knew it would be the perfect place to experience Ethiopia’s cuisine: its traditional wat, a spicy stew with many different varieties; and injera, the flatbread made from a grain called teff. Walking on Lalibela’s small, rocky roads on our way to the restaurant, we felt a world away from the bustling and active capital of Addis Ababa. In the dry heat, we jaunted past some of the town’s vibrant 17,000-plus residents, as well as narrow, dusty side roads, hotels, and brightly painted souvenir shops

and shoe repair stops, among other things. After traipsing for a good while, we caught a glimpse of a cone-like structure piercing the sky. Even in the distance, Ben Abeba’s modernity stands out from any other structure in the town. Shaped like a wizard’s hat, a spaceship or an Alice-inWonderland-esque building (take your pick of description), Ben Abeba perches on the edge of a picturesque valley. The restaurant is the brainchild of local Lalibelian Habtamu Baye and Scottish-born Susan Aitchison. Aitchison, 64, a former home-economics teacher, moved to Ethiopia from Scotland in September 2007 to teach at a newly built school roughly 35 kilometers from Lalibela. Soon after, she got to know one of her drivers, Habtamu, who owned a transport company. When 32-year-old Habtamu mentioned his dream of one day operating a small restaurant — “to do something special for Lalibela, for Ethiopia” — Aitchison decided to join him in making that dream a reality. In November 2009, they leased land from the Ethiopian government — chosen for its spectacular views of the surrounding hills — and spent the next couple of years obtaining permits and building the structure. The design stemmed from the imagination of young Ethiopian architects trained in their native Addis

Ababa. The team held the restaurant’s grand opening in October 2011. Since its debut, Ben Abeba (coined from Scottish and Amharic words to mean “Hill of Flowers”) has grown to include a full-time staff of 40 people. The diverse menu — described as traditional Ethiopian food as well as a selection of less-spicy foods for tamer palates — is created at the discretion of the chefettes, Aitchison’s affectionate name for the chefs. On any given day, patrons can enjoy anything from wat and injera, to banana crepes, to traditional British shepherd’s pie. More than 50,000 trees thrive on Ben Abeba’s property, which altogether grows coffee, bananas, papayas, guavas, avocados, mangos, pomegranates, cabbages, carrots and tomatoes. The restaurant also grows olives with trees originally from the south of France and Italy, donated by a Frenchman who was experimenting to

As for the future, Aitchison and Habtamu have already started work to build four individual bungalows for visiting guests, with the goal of completing construction sometime in 2015. Twelve more are planned to follow soon after, in addition to a meeting space and conference center. In all of these efforts, the pair says they hope to contribute something of lasting significance to Lalibela. And in-

deed, they seem well on their way. Tourists who flock to Lalibela expect to be astonished by the churches, but perhaps in the near-to-distant future, they’ll visit the town for yet another inspiring landmark to stand the test of time. —Laura-Claire Corson recently taught elementary-school English in Seoul, Korea.

A Natural Spectacle No More? How humans are challenging the future of the great wildebeest migrations. |

64

selamtamagazine.com

BY SO N G A SAM U E L - STO N E


For as long as the history of mankind, vast stretches of the East African savannah have provided a stage for large-scale wildebeest migrations. In one of nature’s most iconic and surviving spectacles — that of the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem migration — more than a million of these ungulates instinctively herd themselves into moving columns, all in search of water, lush short-grass plains and calving grounds.

O L E G Z NAM E NSK IY / SH U T T E RSTO CK

Due to their size and habits, wildebeests largely shape the ecosystems in which they live and move, making them one of what scientists consider a “keystone species.” But just as the vast herds of zebra and Thomson’s gazelle that once migrated between Kenya’s Lake NakuruElementaita region and Lake Baringo are no more, the wildebeests and their millennia-old migrations are under threat. The cause remains the same: humans. Falling numbers and increasing threats In 2009, conservation biologists Richard D. Estes and the late Rod East released a research paper confirming that wildebeest populations across East Africa are declining drastically. Recent corroborative studies by Kenyan researcher Joseph O. Ogutu and his colleagues found that all four of Kenya’s wildebeest populations are diminishing. The Athi-Kaputiei ecosystem has witnessed the most extreme change, as fewer than 2,000 migratory wildebeest moved between Nairobi National Park and the Athi-Kaputiei plains in 2011 — a sharp decline from the 30,000 recorded in 1978. In Tanzania, similar studies unearthed an 88-percent drop in the number of wildebeest migrating in the Tarangire-Simanjiro ecosystem between 1988 and 2007. In both cases, human activity — nota-

bly, settlements and agriculture — blocked or fragmented the migratory corridors and dispersal areas, preventing the animals from reaching water and grass during dry seasons. Additionally, an estimated 70,000129,000 wildebeest are killed for human consumption each year in the Serengeti National Park alone, according to research by Tanzania-based Dr. Dennis Rentsch, a technical advisor for the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Poaching for bush meat in the Maasai Mara National Reserve is likewise said to be at “high intensity” level. On top of it all, climate change — arguably caused by human activity — continues to deliver more woes to the East African plains, with a combination of severe flooding and droughts that threatens food availability. A threatened safe haven Stretching 25,000 square kilometers wide, the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem is home to the “Great Migration” — the largest movement of wildebeest, once named the seventh New Wonder of the World. Its vastness and self-contained nature somewhat shield its migratory wildebeest from a number of threats that are quickly reducing herds elsewhere, but struggles nonetheless remain.

Five years ago, amid pressure from the global environmentalist community, the Tanzanian government put off plans to build a highway through Serengeti National Park’s northern area. Had these plans lived to materialize, a 600-page environmental impact assessment study estimated that 3,000 vehicles would use the road daily by 2035 — equating to more than a million vehicles per year. With the road, linear settlements would have become inevitable, further fragmenting the land while endangering the migrations. As of January 2014, work began to upgrade a number of often impassable roads used by villagers living in the communities surrounding the Serengeti. The government pledged that the section across the national park will remain a slower, gravel road, but environmentalists fear this will eventually pave the way for a tarmac highway. The battle between conservation and human development efforts continues. Humans reacting to human-made problems Thankfully, African governments and conservationists are beginning to take action to stem further decline and protect the migration spectacles for future generations. Kenya, for example, recently passed more severe anti-poaching laws. Tanzania is also stepping up its efforts, with the additional recognition that tourist dollars are too important to lose. For example, wildlife conservation programs (financed by donor aid, tour operators, and both Kenyan and Tanzanian governments) are paying landowners in several crucial ecosystems to keep their land open for the animals’ migratory corridors and dispersal areas. But unless even more is done, the story of the last large-scale animal migration will resemble other doomed migration tales: of the bison that once embellished the plains of North America, the Saiga antelope that once frolicked in Central Asia, and the zebra and gazelle that once moved between Kenya’s lakes. january/february 2015

Home to the Toronto Stock Exchange and leading financial, banking and telecommunications sectors, the metropolis is the commercial capital of the nation. Stepping past the towering skyscrapers of Bay Street, though, yields diverse discoveries reflecting Canada’s multiculturalism and burgeoning local arts movement. Head to the trio of the Queen West, Kensington Market and Trinity Bellwoods neighborhoods, in particular, to explore an exceptionally vibrant side of the city. 9:00 a.m. Wake up at The Drake Hotel, the nucleus of the dynamic Queen West arts-and-design district downtown. The 19-room building, which dates back to 1890, has been lovingly restored into a boutique hotel and cultural center. Integrating elements of the original building’s architecture with oneof-a-kind pieces from local and global contemporary artists, The Drake’s atmosphere gives a nod to both the city’s history and the modern energy of Queen West. Breakfast at The Drake Café will have you rubbing shoulders with locals who flock for the blueberry scones and house-roasted coffee. The Southern-inspired chicken-and-waffles dish with macerated cherries is famous for its sweet-and-savory flavor combination. 10:30 a.m. Walk east on Queen Street West, taking in the restored heritage buildings and stylish

boutiques that characterize the neighborhood, until you reach Portland Street. Turn right on Portland, then take the next left onto Rush Lane. Rush Lane (aka Graffiti Alley) and its offshoots are the canvas for some of the most impressive street art in Canada. Take your time exploring the alley and its works, which are painted over regularly to create space for fresh pieces. 12:00 p.m. A 15-minute walk north on Spadina Street to St. Andrews Street will take you to Kensington Market — one of Canada’s most distinctive neighborhoods. It’s known for its legendary open-air market, overflowing with produce, bakeries, vintage and thrift clothing shops, and independent arts collectives. Try the yam burrito at the lively Big Fat Burrito for lunch, or just follow your nose to one of the market’s many ethnic eateries — such as Jumbo Empanadas for traditional Chilean empanadas (fried pastries) stuffed with chicken, beef or cheese. Next, wander the market to your heart’s content, being sure to check out Courage My Love

for a great selection of vintage clothing, Uprising Books for counterculture reads, and Bungalow for a mix of vintage and modern furniture and clothing. 3:30 p.m. Heading west on Dundas Street, you’ll leave the bustle of Kensington for a relaxed 10-minute walk toward Trinity Bellwoods Park. Turn left on Gore Vale and find yourself in the well-tended, 15-hectacre green space — a hub for sun seekers, picnickers and dog owners. Wander the park, heading south toward Nadège Patisserie on the corner of Gore Vale and Queen Street West. Grab a few of Nadège’s famed multicolored macarons and a coffee at White Squirrel Coffee Shop (so named for the park’s renowned albino squirrel), and enjoy both while people-watching in the park. Next, head to the nearby Type Books to

lose an hour or two discovering gems amid its thoughtfully curated collection. 6:00 p.m. Walk west on Queen Street West, stopping in at The Drake to drop off any treasures from your afternoon of exploring. Just past the hotel is Grand Electric, a legendary taqueria specializing in innovative tacos, bourbon cocktails and loud music. The baja fish tacos are something to write home about, and the unusual scrapple tacos (made from boiled pig’s head meat, sliced and fried to a crispy, salty goodness) are well worth a try. The wide selection of bourbons and mixed drinks (“Jesus Juice” is particularly popular) keeps the party going until late. Be warned: Arriving after 7:00 p.m. almost guarantees you’ll have to wait in line, as the taqueria doesn’t take reservations. 8:30 p.m. Return to your hotel and end the night with a cocktail on the yearround rooftop patio, Sky Yard, adorned with local graffiti murals and featuring a wintertime fire pit. Alternatively, you can venture to the basement, where The Drake’s Underground showcases live entertainment nearly every night. Then, retire to your crash pad at your leisure, knowing you’ve tasted one of Toronto’s most effervescent regions. —Rachel MacNeill is a freelance journalist and editor based in Montreal, Quebec (Canada).

Boeing 777-300ER The B777-300ER is one of the largest and most-modern members of our fleet, with a 400-seat capacity. Its spacious cabin interior, high ceiling, advanced in-flight entertainment system, increased stowage capability and additional cargo uplift flexibility give our passengers the best possible travel experience. The aircraft also perfectly complements its predecessor in our fleet, the B777-200LR (Longer Range) airplane, by providing additional capacity and flexibility on popular routes such as Guangzhou, Washington, D.C., Lagos, Luanda and Dubai.
