Welcome Aboard Esteemed Customers,

የተከበራችሁ መንገደኞቻችን

e are working hard to provide the best possible travel experience and to be your airline of choice for international travel. In recognition of our continuous efforts, Air Transport World — the leading global travel publication — chose Ethiopian as the “2015 Regional Airline of the Year.” This award is above all a testimony to your confidence in us, and it encourages us to work even harder to meet your high expectations. In February, we phased in our 11th B-787 Dreamliner — the aircraft used as our core fleet on mid- and longrange routes. The Dreamliner is equipped with 180-degree flat-bed seats in our Cloud 9 Business Class and the latest in-flight entertainment system, in addition to features like the highest ceiling, greatly reduced noise, higher cabin humidity, adaptable lighting system and the biggest windows in the sky. Similarly, we are retrofitting the Cloud 9 Business Class seats on all of our B-777s to make them 180-degree fully flat-bed, so that you can enjoy maximum comfort on our ever-growing long-haul routes. In April 2015, we will achieve yet another milestone with the start of our flights to Tokyo, our 85th international destination. By providing the only direct connection between Africa and Japan, these flights will play an important role in facilitating greater economic and tourism ties between the continent — the second-fastest-growing region in the world — and a highly industrialized Japan. Back in August 2012, we became the first airline in the world outside of Japan to own and operate the B-787 aircraft. Continuing with our technology leadership, in March 2015 we became the first African airline to own and operate the B-787 Dreamliner full flight simulator. The simulator will be used to train pilots across the continent who will determine the future of African aviation. Lastly, I want to invite you to come and visit Ethiopia in April for our unique Easter celebrations. In particular, the colorful procession for Palm Sunday, known as Hosanna, in the historical city of Aksum is a must-see. You will be truly amazed at the historical, cultural and natural riches of our country. As always, our in-house tour operation, Ethiopian Holidays, is ready to cater to all of your leisuretravel needs. Thank you for choosing to fly with us. We will continue to work hard to earn your business.

FLIGHTS TO TOKYO enabling greater people-to-people, investment, trade and tourism ties between Africa and Japan”

ethiopianairlines.com

Ethiopian to provide the only service between Africa and Japan.

Ethiopian Airlines, the largest airline in Africa, is pleased to announce the finalization of preparations to start service to Tokyo Narita International Airport, beginning in April. The thrice-weekly flight will operate in codeshare partnership with fellow Star Alliance member All Nippon Airways — Japan’s leading airline. Providing the only direct connection between Africa and Japan, the flight will operate through Hong Kong using the ultramodern Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. “Our flights to Narita,” says Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, will play a “critical role in enabling greater people-to-people, investment, trade and tourism ties between a rising Africa, the second-fastest growing region in the world, and a highly industrialized Japan, the third-largest economy in the world.” Ethiopian is a Pan-African global carrier operating the youngest fleet in Africa. It currently serves 84 international destinations across five continents with over 200 daily departures.

THE HANNAH GODEFA PROJECT

selamta

NOTEWORTHY Recent accomplishments for Ethiopian Airlines:

Empowering young women across the globe.

Ethiopian Airlines first began supporting Hannah Godefa’s work in 2011, when the then14-year-old Ethiopian-Canadian student started transporting school supplies to Ethiopia. Over the few years since, the Hannah Godefa Project has distributed over half a million educational resources for students in the country, including wheelchairs for students with disabilities and university textbooks. More recently, though, Hannah has transformed her grassroots initiative into a global platform to raise awareness about important issues for girls around the world — from lack of education to female genital mutilation and child marriage. Her many highlights in 2014 include: being appointed Ethiopian Ambassador to UNICEF; hosting an interactive discussion about girl empowerment at the World DOING GOOD

AWARDS

Economic Forum, with U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon, Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg; serving as an education for Africa panelist at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai; working with the U.N.’s human-rights committee on eliminating all forms of violence against women; and speaking at the Girl Summit in London on eradicating female genital mutilation and child marriage. As for the Hannah Godefa Project, Hannah has been fundraising for the construction of a vocational training and education youth center, with a focus on equipping girls with valuable skills such as sewing and midwifery. She has raised US$11,000 to date for the project. Ethiopian is proud to support Hannah’s efforts, positioning her at the forefront of a global movement to empower and educate young women and girls.

Ethiopian Airlines recently accepted the following awards with pride: “Best Foreign Airline of the Year From Africa” at Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s 9th Annual Awards. “Best Airline to Africa” by one of the most prominent travel magazines in the United States, Premier Traveler. “Best Airline in Africa” by the Passenger Choice Awards, the most extensive survey of passengers in the industry. “Best in Africa” by the African Airlines Association.

Became the first African airline to own and operate the B-787 full flight simulator. Ethiopian was also the first airline in the world outside of Japan to operate the B-787 Dreamliner, and it remains the largest operator of the aircraft in Africa. With the installation of the flight simulator, Ethiopian will be the first in Africa to give full flight simulator training for pilots on the B-787 aircraft.

Expanded codeshare with Air India, offering unparalleled air connectivity options between India and Africa. The two Star Alliance member carriers, which already have a codeshare in place for the Mumbai and New Delhi routes, have expanded their agreement through Ethiopian’s main hub in Addis Ababa — such as Kigali, Entebbe, Dar es Salaam, Harare and Nairobi — and on Air India’s domestic routes, with the inclusion of Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Bangalore.

Around Addis

HISTORY IN HARDBACK We know that no collection of books can fully portray the complex historical narratives of any country. Yet for those interested in Ethiopian history, we’ve done our best to choose a sampling of titles that together present some of the cultures, conflicts and characters that have shaped the country’s story.

The Barefoot Emperor

Pioneers of Change in Ethiopia

An Ethiopian boyhood

An Ethiopian tragedy

Nega Mezlekia

Philip Marsden

Reformist intellectuals of early twentieth century

This biographical tale by an Ethiopian-Canadian author won the Governor General’s Award — Canada’s top literary prize — in 2000. Set during the dark Derg era, Ato Nega’s memoir describes what it was like to grow up during and after the infamous communist revolution. Punctuated by many funny and poignant scenes, Notes From the Hyena’s Belly makes a difficult period in Ethiopian history more understandable.

Though based on firsthand accounts of the life of Emperor Tewodros, this book is written in the form of a political thriller novel. From his rise to power to his confrontation with the British Empire, The Barefoot Emperor chronicles the leader’s complex and controversial legacy, with an engaging style. Readers interested in British history will particularly enjoy the book’s coverage of one of the strangest military expeditions in British imperial history.

12

selamtamagazine.com

Bahru Zewde

Focusing on the first and second generation of Ethiopians to be educated abroad during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Pioneers of Change reveals a determined group of young people who sought to modernize Ethiopia socially, culturally and economically. While opposition from the imperial government, the brutality of the Italian occupation and other factors undid much of their efforts, the story is both fascinating and inspiring.

Greater Ethiopia The evolution of a multiethnic society Don Levine

Although first published nearly four decades ago, Greater Ethiopia remains a go-to book for many scholars seeking a comprehensive overview of modern Ethiopia’s social and anthropological roots. Written by a University of Chicago professor who first visited Ethiopia in the 1950s, the book weaves a compelling narrative of how the country has evolved as a complex, multiethnic society.

Beyond the Throne The enduring legacy of Emperor Haile Selassie I Indrias Getachew

Any collection of Ethiopian history would be incomplete without a book focusing on the life of the country’s most famous emperor, Haile Selassie. Though much has been written about the last man to rule imperial Ethiopia, Beyond the Throne stands apart for its large selection of previously unpublished photographs of the late emperor and the royal family.

*For access: US$7 for one day. For usage: The first 30 minutes is free; additional 30-minute segments start at $2. You can check out a bike as many times as you like within a single day; stations are solar-powered. Bikes disappear quickly during morning hours at popular stations such as Columbia Heights. The operation began in 2010 with one van moving 300 bikes per day between 100 stations; within three years, the number of stations doubled — and continues to grow. capitalbikeshare.com

selamtamagazine.com

20,000 bikes across 1,800 stations *For access: 1.70 Euro (roughly US$2.35) for one day. For usage: The first 30 minutes is free; additional 30-minute segments start at 1 Euro. Stations are densely located (apparently found every 300 meters); bikes include front baskets and built-in cable locks. The bike theft rate is high, especially in outlying areas (around 9,000 bikes were stolen in 2012); bikes are reportedly heavy and not so handsome.

2,200 bikes across 170 stations *For access: 17 ILS (about US$5) for one day, or 23 ILS on Saturdays and public holidays. For usage: The first 30 minutes is free; additional 30-minute segments start at 5 ILS. Station screens offer prompts in French, Russian, Hebrew, English and Arabic. In order to register and rent a bike, you must be at least 18 years old and have a credit card.

The network is the largest outside China (yet it’s still dwarfed by Hangzhou’s 50,000-bike system).

Word on the street is that hardly anyone wears a helmet and local bicyclists roam freely — on sidewalks, in the street — so ride at your own risk.

A BOON FOR ETHIOPIAN EXPORTS

The Japan International Cooperation Agency seeks to help set Ethiopia's products apart.

SHEEP LEATHER

WILD FOREST COFFEE The Certified Forest Coffee Production and Promotion Project promotes sustainable rural development and incentivizes forest conservation in Ethiopia’s Oromia Region. Before the project’s inception, coffee was considered only a secondary source of income for forest inhabitants, whose livelihoods depended on the sale of lumber. Thanks in part to its partnership with the Oromia Forest and Wildlife Enterprise, JICA has since organized farmers into “cooperatives” trained to preserve the forest and process coffee beans efficiently, increasing quality and yield. The wild forest coffee produced is already being exported, and big companies — including Japanese coffee giant UCC — have started taking notice.

Though JICA’s Champion Product Approach first focused on mentoring and training select Ethiopian industry leaders, the project's second phase has shifted to solely promoting Ethiopian sheep leather. The CPA team has partnered with Japanese creative firm Dentsu to brand Ethiopia’s product, communicating its airy, soft feel to the masses. In the future, this brand will be used to certify high-quality Ethiopian sheep leather and set it apart from products made elsewhere.

Ethiopia and Japan have enjoyed nearly a century of positive diplomatic relations. During the early 20th century, Ethiopian leaders looked to Japan as a model for balancing modernization and economic growth with independence from the West and preservation of traditional culture. More recently, Japan has become an important technical partner, assisting in some areas critical to Ethiopia’s socioeconomic development. The Japan International Cooperation Agency, in particular, is involved in numerous projects across Ethiopia. Its activities cross multiple sectors, from agriculture to manufacturing to tourism, but two of JICA’s projects currently underway focus on helping Ethiopian producers increase the quality of exports. Given Japan’s ability to become a major destination for such goods, these projects carry weighty potential for Ethiopia’s economy in the years to come.

CREATIVITY WITHOUT BORDERS Afripedia spotlights Africa’s independent artists.

22

selamtamagazine.com

For a Swedish film collective called Stocktown, inspiration lately has come from a seemingly unlikely source: the young, hip artist generation spanning the African continent. It all started in 2008, when Stocktown founder Teddy Goitom began to note a lack of information surrounding Africa’s independent creative scene. Seeking to convey the idea that creativity knows no borders, he and his colleagues launched a short documentary featuring South African creatives — from those involved in the heavy metal scene to the street fashion of Soweto. The show’s success then sparked the creation of Afripedia, a five-part documentary series spotlighting the life and work of artists in not only South Africa but also Angola, Ghana, Kenya and Senegal. While the individuals featured in the series differ greatly in their crafts, they each exemplify their home culture in a unique way. Take, for example, Ghanaian performance artist Serge Attukwei Clottey, whose “Afrogallonism” project raises awareness about the water crises in Ghana. Goitom and his colleagues hope that the the series reflects how individuals are challenging and changing the perceptions of Africa. The team is currently in the process of producing a spin-off feature film, as well as an online platform — a visual guide to art, film, music, fashion and contemporary culture from African creatives worldwide.

A Catalogue of Treasures How UNESCO helps guard our world heritage.

BY HANNAH JOR DAN

selamtamagazine.com

Behind the golden peaks of Giza’s pyramids and along the sinuous stretch of China’s Great Wall stands an agency devoted to protecting these giants of history. A subgroup of the United Nations known as UNESCO — short for the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization — drives the preservation of more than 1,000 such sites throughout the world.


Created in 1945, UNESCO grew out of the rather bold hope that global peace might be fostered through moral and intellectual means. By 1972, UNESCO had created its World Heritage Program to move toward such peace through significant national landmarks. UNESCO hoped to promote dialogue between different countries as they shared a common goal: to care for their own country’s historic legacies. The World Heritage List, referred to as a catalogue of world treasures, boasts 1,007 sites around the world — including natural sites such as the Great Barrier Reef (Australia) and The Wadden Sea (Germany), and cultural sites such as Paphos (Cyprus) and the Maya Site of Copan (Honduras). Once on the list, these sites serve as landmarks to capture the imagination and attention of travelers throughout the globe. Among the list’s first 12 sites (all added in 1978) are Ecuador’s

Galápagos Islands, Germany’s Aachen Cathedral, Ethiopia’s Simien National Park and Poland’s Wieliczka Salt Mine. The Galapagos Islands were chosen for their foundational role in Darwin’s theory of natural selection, as well as for their unique ecosystem and endangered species. On average, 25 to 30 sites are added to the list annually, each newcomer contributing a unique dimension of history. The process to become a World Heritage site, though, doesn’t begin with the historical spot itself but with its homeland. Only a country that has signed the World Heritage Convention — pledging to protect its natural and cultural heritage — can submit proposals to nominate properties within its territory. To move a site through the lengthy nomination process requires diligence and patience. The last step is to pass the Criteria for Selection test. UNESCO’s 10 criteria champion accomplishments that range from significant

habitats of biodiversity to a display of man’s creativity (i.e., a masterpiece, such as the Italian church that houses Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”). Unfortunately, 46 sites currently land on an in-danger list. While threats vary from civil wars to nature’s whims, UNESCO is committed to finding solutions for each site’s restoration and protection. In fact, Egypt’s Giza Pyramids stand out as one of the organization’s greatest success stories: The World Heritage Committee’s 1995 negotiations with the Egyptian government rerouted a threatening highway project near Cairo, keeping the limestone giants well intact. But no matter where they find their place on the organization’s long list, sites as majestic as India’s Taj Mahal, as dramatic as Italy’s Amalfi Coast or as intricate as Jordan’s Petra vie for our attention as travelers — demanding our commitment to keep them alive and waiting to fold us into the stories of their past.

RUNNING South African trail legend Ryan Sandes discovers the world by foot. BY KEITH BAIN

march/april 2015

His feet at times tread so lightly that he seems to not even touch the ground. On steeper cliff faces, where metal chains and footholds are built into the rock in lieu of dirt paths, Ryan Sandes handles the sudden inclines with Spiderman-like agility. His running style involves a precision and confidence that comes from thousands of hours of training; yet when he smoothly gives chase across the earth’s uneven surfaces, it’s certain he was designed for this. “Running is about the purest

thing a human can do,” he says, “and trail running is how I explore the world.” So far he’s explored all seven continents by foot, tackling ultramarathons by the dozen — including a six-day travail in Madagascar in September 2014. Divided into various stages of varying distances, including several marathon-length sections, the 250-kilometer race took him across tropical beaches, lush paddy fields, vast savannahs and ancient baobab forests. Such seemingly untenable terrains bring with them snakes, crocodiles, vicious insects, blistering heat and dripping humidity. “Pretty crazy conditions,” says Sandes, 48

who won the endurance race in 22 hours, 46 minutes and 25 seconds. Slower competitors would take over 70 hours, many not finishing at all. It’s easily assumed that Sandes’ fleet-footedness is the result of a lifelong endeavor. Yet his determination to run epic distances — and his capacity for endurance — were discovered only in his mid-20s. A latent talent emerges In 2006, he entered his first marathon on a whim, part of a mid-winter festival in the South African holiday town of Knysna. Friends had egged him on to enter the

half-marathon for fun, but it was sold out, so he gave the full-distance race a bash instead. He’d played team sports at school but had never been a runner, so he surprised himself by finishing very comfortably — revealing innate talent and igniting in him a desire to explore the world by running. Growing up in Cape Town, Sandes had dabbled in surfing, but now his attention turned to the trail-strewn mountains in his backyard. Fueled by an adventurer’s spirit, he entered and trained seriously for a 250-km, multiday race across China’s Gobi Desert in 2008, part of the same global series that took him to Madagascar last year.

CR AI G KO L E SKY / R E D B U L L CO N T E N T P O O L

Undaunted by any extreme, Ryan Sandes thrives on the adventure of ultradistance trail running; the obstacles and distances, he says, serve his needs for self-reliance and solitude.


( TO P TO BOT TO M ) N I CK M U Z I K / R E D B U L L CO N T E N T P O O L , K E LVI N T R AU T MAN / R E D B U L L CO N T E N T P O O L

At first, the race was a kind of challenge; he was keen for a life-altering adventure and relished the need for self-reliance, and he says the distance served his fondness for solitude. Because it was a self-supported race, only water is available along the way; Gobi’s competitors must be otherwise self-sufficient and prepared for sudden extreme changes in temperature and terrain. All of this is on top of the reality of running a marathon-or-so each day for almost a week. Part of what kept him going, he says, was the experience of encountering a new part of the world. He recalls running through ancient villages where local people don’t see many outsiders. “Those interactions were quite special,” he says. His goal had been to simply survive and make it across the finish line, but fate and fortitude took him further. He nabbed first place and kickstarted a professional trail-running career, his easygoing charm and broad smile making him an instant hit with fans and sponsors


Of all the challenging conditions, he says he’d be hard-pressed to return to Brazil’s Jungle Marathon. “Nothing is your friend in the Amazon,” he says, “and I was very happy to make it out of there alive.” Yet he not only survived the jungle’s bugs and anaconda-, caiman- and piranha-infested rivers, but he also won the 235-km multiday race in record time.

such as Red Bull and Salomon alike. Within three years of winning the Gobi March, he’d won similarly brutal races in a string of extreme locations — including the Sahara, Chile’s Atacama Desert (“one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen”), and the frozen Antarctic wilderness. For the latter, he trained on a treadmill in a sub-zero ice-chamber.


K E LVI N T R AU T MAN / R E D B U L L CO N T E N T P O O L

In 2010 he began also mixing single-stage races into his schedule, starting with a succession of South African victories. For the Puffer — which traverses 80 km of tar and trail — he arrived over an hour ahead of the second finisher. Distance-wise, though, the Puffer paled alongside his first 100-miler: Leadville’s notoriously tough “Race Across the Sky” through the Colorado Rockies. Known for its knee-shattering ascents at high altitude, the race was Sandes’ first attempt to run more than 100 km in a single stretch — and he won that, too, in 2011. More to running than winning His victory at Leadville then signaled a shift in focus toward single-stage ultramarathons. He racked 100-miler victories in Hong Kong and Australia, and he placed second in his first attempt at the Western States Endurance Run, heralded as the “world’s oldest and most prestigious 100-mile trail race.” These were the kinds of races that hammer both mind and body — to the extent that competitors undergo mandatory medical checks and weigh-ins, to ensure they’re sufficiently hydrated along the way. Runners often lapse into hallucination, and along with the lost toenails, chaffing and blistering, there’s the kind of muscle fatigue, aching knees, cramps and sore feet that would cause

the undoing of many. Sandes says his training schedule varies according to what he’s preparing for, but he typically spends between 12 and 22 hours each week running on the mountain trails he considers his “office.” He uses the gym for core and balance, strength and mobility work, and he tries to mix mountain biking and surfing into his schedule — especially during postrace recovery. Plus there are massages, chiropractic sessions and physiotherapy to help his body deal with the extreme lengths he runs. And yet for Sandes, these grueling distances are charged with philosophical significance. “There’s no hiding when it comes to 100 miles,” he says, explaining that the physical pain and what it takes mentally to endure keep him grounded. “Winning doesn’t make you feel invincible,” he says, “because the scale of distance makes you realize that you’re pretty insignificant on this planet — that you’re only a small aspect in the grand scheme of things.” His humility disguises incredible mental fortitude. Although Professor Tim Noakes, co-founder of the South African Sports Science Institute, and other experts explain his endurance capacity in terms of his stronger-than-average will and an extremely positive mind space, Sandes says it’s that he’s simply doing what he march/april 2015

Though a young sport, ultradistance racing has already taken Sandes around the world. In 2013, he became the first person to win an ultramarathon on all seven continents.

HIT THE TRAIL Africa’s most exciting ultradistance races.

Marathon des Sables Morocco | April 3, 2015 Although it’s not the only race across the Sahara, this one is hailed by many as the world’s toughest ultramarathon — a grueling, 250km desert-survival travail in one of earth’s harshest climates.

loves. “I suppose it’s a form of meditation,” he says, “an escape from reality.” Of course, being able to escape professionally requires regularly scoring more victories and meeting new challenges. When Sandes won the North Face TransGranCanaria Advanced in Spain in early 2013, for example, he not only gained his first European victory, but he also became the first person to win an ultramarathon on all seven continents. It was a significant accolade, but Sandes maintains there’s more to running than winning races. With this mentality, he teamed up with fellow runner Ryno Griesel for the March 2014 Drakensberg Grand Traverse — a self-navigating adventure across six of the highest peaks south of Kilimanjaro. With few paths and no set route, its terrain includes sharp ascents, climbing ridges, steep ravines and ledges carved into soaring basalt peaks — requiring much scrambling in places where the slightest misstep could prove deadly. The participants also contended with fiercely unpredictable weather and thin high-altitude air that plays havoc with the lungs. Setting off at midnight, Sandes and Griesel covered 207 km in 41 hours and 49 minutes, clocking a mere hour’s sleep while slicing nearly 19 hours off existing records. For Sandes, the race wasn’t about times; it was a personal test, arriving at the finish not to a podium but to the knowledge that he’d endured against significant odds. “When you’re running high up in the Colorado mountains or the remote Drakensberg, it’s just you,” he says, “and maybe one or two herdsmen and their cattle. “You are truly in the middle of nowhere, properly out in a wilderness,” he adds. “I enjoy those wide-open spaces. It’s not just you versus other people — it’s you versus nature. It’s a kind of exploration, a kind of adventure that comes out of me.” Ultimately, says Sandes, trail running is for him a form of discovery — both of himself and of the planet. When all is said and done, it’s a way of seeing the world. “It’s not only about running,” he says. “It’s a kind of travel — a way of getting from point A to point B.”

From majestic mountains and languid lakes to glorious gardens and transfixing temples, discover the peaceful side of Japan: a nation where the great outdoors is always just a bullet-train ride away. Although Japan is world-famous for its massive metropolises, competitive high-tech industries and high-speed railway lines, there is another side to this island nation that welcomes visitors seeking rest, rejuvenation and aesthetic delight. The tranquil destinations listed on the following pages are either located within Tokyo — the newest Asian destination for Ethiopian Airlines — or just a short jaunt from the capital city.

MEIJI SHRINE Located at the heart of Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya district, the Meiji Shrine and its surrounding 175-acre park offer an incredible change of pace from the rest of the city. The serene shrine buildings are ringed by over 100,000 trees, creating a true urban jungle and the perfect host site for major Shinto religious festivals, as well as traditional Shinto weddings. The grounds also contain sports facilities and numerous cultural attractions, including the Meiji Jingu Treasure House museum and the Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery.

INOKASHIRA PARK Established nearly 100 years ago, Tokyo’s Inokashira Park was originally given as a gift from the Emperor of Japan to the public. The sprawling, 95-acre park is home to a large pond, which was the first water source for the city of Tokyo. Inokashira Pond is surrounded by 250 cherry trees that blossom brightly in the springtime. The park also contains walking paths, a plum grove, a petting zoo, an aquarium and the Ghibli Museum — dedicated to the popular Japanese animated films produced by Studio Ghibli.

Travelers often climb overnight in order to catch the sunrise from the peak of Mount Fuji.

With its long, symmetrical sloping sides and snowcapped peak, Japan’s tallest and most famous mountain is a sight to behold. The mount can be seen from Tokyo on a clear day, and visitors to the capital city can reach it in less than two hours by train. Travelers who wish to climb the mountain can join thousands of other summer expeditioners in the months of July and August, with the most popular way being to complete the trek overnight and catch a glimpse of the sunrise from the peak.

NIKKO

NIIJIMA

Famous for its many shrines and temples, the town of Nikko lies at the mouth of the lush Nikko National Park — just an easy day trip from Tokyo. The town’s visitors can explore both the elaborate wonders of nature — including waterfalls, lakes and mountains — as well as elaborately decorated Shinto and Buddhist architecture. (For another glimpse of Nikko, turn to p. 36.)

Few travelers associate Japan with sun, surf and sand, but the island of Niijima presents all of the above — complete with waves fierce enough to attract international surfing competitions. Niijima is one of the Seven Izu Islands that lie in the ocean south of Tokyo, but as it is administered by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, it is technically considered part of the city. In additon to is pristine beaches and the ever-present onsen baths, Niijima also boasts several man-made attractions: The Niijima Glass Art Museum, featuring a unique type of locally-made glass, and a number of minshuku — traditional owneroccupied boarding houses, where visitors can experience true Japanese hospitality and home-cooked meals.

A TRAVELER’S TREAT Glamorous camping at the Lalibela Hudad ecolodge. BY J E N NY O U L IAR IS

he well-trodden path from the holy city of Lalibela to the mountain plateau of the Hudad is a traveler’s treat. Serving as both the course for children on their daily trek to school and a busy highway of donkeys, goats and people on their way to market, this route provides a beautiful beginning to a truly authentic experience of life in Ethiopia’s highlands.

I’m joined on this path by two other adults and six children between ages 10 and 15, including my two children who were adopted from Ethiopia eight years ago. Though my family and I live in Australia, we take a biannual pilgrimage to Ethiopia so that my son and daughter may reconnect with their culture and their extended family. I made this same trek with my children on our last visit, after scouring the Internet for places to spend our 60

Christmas. The Lalibela Hudad — a 10-hectare ecolodge built in 2011 — provided the perfect place to celebrate the special time of year for our family. Making this journey again, I am keenly aware of the danger of trying to recreate an experience (especially one I have talked so much about). But as we begin the arduous two- to three-hour walk up the mountain path, my anxiety quickly gives way; the kids run ahead to chatter and play with the local children while we adults

meander behind, admiring the flora and fauna, the freshly harvested fields, and the local farming practices and customs. The Hudad is set on a tabletop plateau 3,300 meters above sea level, offering 360-degree views of the magnificent hills and lush valleys below. Legend has it that the Hudad (“The Big Farm”) was named by King Lalibela, who built the area’s famed rock-hewn churches in the 13th century. Though the king lived in the town named after him below, the locals say he used this land around the Hudad to farm. Visitors to the lodge stay in coneshaped huts called tukuls, built by local artisans from stones hand-mined from the plateau itself. The local community has a significant role in the set-up, building and running of the ecoresort —

from constructing new huts and cooking all of the meals to performing evening dancing-and-singing acts. Upon arriving at our own tukuls, we find extra sweaters, hats, gloves and traditional clothing laid out on the beds — signaling the cold nights ahead. No running water or electricity exists here, but solar torches are provided and hot water is available by request. Warm water in beautiful earthenware pots awaits us outside our huts every morning, and hot water bottles warm our beds at night. Some have called this experience “glamping” (glamorous camping), but I just call it heaven. I haven’t slept so well in years. We spend our days enjoying the beauty of our surroundings: the gelada baboons roaming freely through low shrubs, the rock hyrax scuttling away as they hear our approach, the massive wings of a lammergeyer casting shadows on the ground. It is enough to sit and just be here. But the warm hospitality of our hosts and the local community imprints the most lasting impression. Every night, we gather around the campfire with Ethiopian men and women to eat together and sing. As per the local custom, the locals

wash and massage the feet of their weary guests — making us laugh and the kids squeal with delight. Together, we feast on Ethiopian-style pepper steak and aromatic rice while the stars shine above us. Here, life is pared back to the essentials: the majesty of the natural world, the aesthetic beauty of simple man-made structures, the joy of relationships and community. It is all here in abundance. We drink it up, our hearts and souls filling with life’s uncomplicated pleasures — more than enough to carry us down the mountain path that brought us to this magical place, and enough to last us till we can return once again. —Jenny Ouliaris is a general practitioner and family therapist. She is the mother of two Ethiopian children, whose boundless energy and joy for living make adventures like trips to the Lalibela Hudad so enjoyable.

Set in the foothills of Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains, the Lalibela Hudad ecolodge provides an authentic local experience in a relaxing natural setting.

Addis Ababa’s Sishu restaurant serves up a model for Ethiopian business. |

ishu’s home-away-from-home vibe resonates with the Ethiopian diaspora in Addis Ababa, as well as with expats living in the capital city. In the warehouse-turned-restaurant located in the Kera neighborhood, a welcoming aroma of fresh bread emerges from an open kitchen. Although sandwiches coexist on the menu, Sishu is best-known for its burgers. Slightly sweet buns and moist, seasoned ground meat join a creamy, tangy homemade sauce to tease palates; crisp French fries served with made-from-scratch ketchup round out the meal. The comforting decor combines elements of a diner, picnic, cafeteria and library all in one. Lingering is expected and encouraged here. While an eclectic playlist wafts in the background, urbanites from all walks of modern Addis life — drawn mostly by word-of-mouth — relax over meals and coffee: young foreigners abroad for study or research trips; their older counterparts on business; visiting Ethiopian diasporas; or permanent returnees, such as restaurant co-founder Matthews Teshome. Years ago, when Matthews relocated to Addis from the United States, he noticed the lack of places to hang out that didn’t require drinking alcohol or listening to loud music. Inspired by the need for a low-key, foreigner-friendly spot to relax, he created Sishu with his business partner (and restaurant namesake), Selamawit “Sishu” Deneke. Burgers and sandwiches, being simple to prepare, were an obvious choice for the menu. Customers quickly judged them to be better than most in

America, and definitely the best in Addis. Sishu strives to source as many ingredients locally as possible. Entire cows are purchased from a farm in Debre Zeit (southeast of the capital), supplemented as needed by an Addis supplier. For the bread, each silky soft portion of homemade dough is weighed in full view of customers. Due to the inconsistent supply and quality of local cheese, Sishu buys imported Gouda; potatoes come via Debre Zeit farms as well. Good fries are hard to come by in the city, Matthews claims, so it is a goal to keep Sishu’s as close to the gold standard as possible. The demand for authentic burgers and sandwiches in Addis is so high that customers would likely forgive a little slip in quality. But Sishu’s two business partners are focused on maintaining and improving their products and service. To keep service standards high, they hire more staff than the required minimum but are holding off on opening burgeronly branches until the company culture and finances can sustain them. Recruitment and training is slow; new employees come by referral, and it can take up to two months for them to reach a full productivity level. Language and cultural difficulties make server positions harder to

fill; of the current staff of 45, most work at the back end of the restaurant. Sishu keeps its staff members happy by paying them double what they would make elsewhere, although Matthews would like to pay them even more. Until that’s possible, Sishu maximizes its limited resources by a form of revenue sharing: Ten percent of revenue is reserved for salaries and pensions, and the remaining money is divided equally among employees. While small, those bonuses are affordable for the company and significant enough to engender employee loyalty. It’s the hope of Sishu’s co-founders that, one day, all staff members will share the middle-class standard of living enjoyed by many of the restaurant’s customers. This revenue-sharing model and the strategy of methodical growth represent Sishu’s real objective: to help transform Ethiopian business practices. “Our mission is to be a model for other businesses in Ethiopia,” Matthews says. “And the success of that mission depends on our monetary success, because if we’re not successful, then no one will want to copy us.” Sishu aims to be one of the biggest companies in Ethiopia within 10 years by launching a two-part expansion plan: A second kitchen (already 75-percent func-

tional) will produce and supply burger components to high-end hotels, and later the larger market; and take-out-only branches will sell burgers at more affordable prices to a wider segment of the population. Until enough additional capital from investors can accelerate these plans, the company will continue to finesse the restaurant’s ambience and menu, assessing how new items and ingredients play out with its loyal, always-game customers. “Something I love about Sishu is that the food is always consistent,” says Nathan, the Ethiopian diaspora director of the documentary Sincerely Ethiopia, which profiles the restaurant among the best of what the country has to offer. “I love their business model, and that they experiment with other types of food.” He’s personally all about the cheesesteak sandwich. Word of Sishu’s bacon (the “best in Ethiopia”) has gotten around, though, so the bacon cheeseburger remains a favorite among both the transient and permanent crowds of customers. No matter their origin or destination, all recognize the universal burger, sandwich and fries — and a place like Sishu that serves them with a side of friendly atmosphere — as something globally familiar, and therefore always a taste of home. march/april 2015

Supper Clubs in the Big Smoke African pop-up restaurants burst onto London’s food scene. |

selamtamagazine.com

O

ver the last half-decade or so, London has seen hundreds of “pop-up” restaurants blossom across its landscape — temporary dining establishments that might also frequently change locations. Offering everything from gluten-free supper clubs and theatrical banquets in art galleries to secret literary dinners in private homes, these quirky culinary experiences are spicing up London’s dining scene and gathering devoted followers. Whatever the theme, the menus at such events are produced by chefs (whether amateur, professional or Michelin-starred) whose palates range from Italian to Modern British to Malaysian. But until 2011, African pop-ups have been rare here. The reason probably lies somewhere in the fact that communal dining is nothing new in African social life, with food usually being the focal point of any event that brings extended families together. But adding an enterprising element might just be the trick to draw African cuisine into some of the culinary conversations between restaurant diners and critics alike. Enter the Groundnut and Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen — two pop-up enterprises that are now putting

African food firmly on the London map. What these particular pop-ups are doing is twofold: They’re highlighting some of the flavors of a diverse continent, and they’re also illustrating the fact that African cuisine is just as varied as the many countries and regions from which it springs. The Groundnut launched in late 2011 as a creative project founded by three 20-something chefs. Today, Folayemi Brown, Duval Timothy and Jacob Fodio Todd host their monthly pop-up at Enclave Projects, an artist-run space in south London. Their goal is that the atmosphere would be as much about a lifestyle as it is a dining experience. The trio’s mixed heritage strongly influences Groundnut’s changing menu: Afro-European fusion, with Nigerian, Southern African, Ghanaian and Ethiopian flavors running through. The events are very much a Facebook and word-of-mouth phenomenon, with bookings taken on the pop-up’s website at a reasonable rate of

roughly US$20 per person. On each Groundnut night, three sets of hour-long seatings are well choreographed. Multiple hands reach out for platters spread atop communal tables, which might include generously sliced chunks of sea bream, each cooked with a crisp skin and a moist but firm center. Dexterously rolled portions of homemade injera (an Ethiopian sourdough pancake) are used to mop up the predominantly hand-eaten food, which can be optionally spiced with shito, a Ghanaian fish sauce with a chili-oil base. There’s an experimental edge to the

menu, with a convivial crowd of up to 30 diners eager to try each dish. Despite the African flair to the main options, the desserts are fairly globally focused and ultimately aimed at cleansing the palate. Large bowls of dates and shot glasses of fresh melon-and-ginger juice, for example, provide a perfect end to the meal. As the night winds down, the event becomes more of a private lock-in, with the chef-owners kicking back and sharing bottles of wine with old and new friends alike. A similar atmosphere of sociability exists over in East London, where Zoe Adjonyoh is the industrious chef and founder of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen. Hers is a thoroughly modern Ghanaian affair — from the dishes served and the event’s rapidly growing audience, to the puns used to market her pop-up sessions on Facebook, Twitter and the ZGK site (“It’s Ghana be huge,” “It’s Ghana be tasty” and “Ghana stand up”). What essentially started out as a one-off stall at an outdoor arts festival has since turned into monthly fourhour dining experiences with a party atmosphere. It’s this celebratory vibe and a sense of getting to know Ghana that has, like The Groundnut, created a broad wordof-mouth following from event to event. Since kicking off her venture in 2011, Zoe has established lucrative London partnerships, including one as part of Diesel clothing’s Studio Africa campaign, highlighting the continent’s creative talent. More recently, Zoe has added a second monthly event, in Berlin. Zoe hosts her U.K. meal at the 40-person-capacity Studio Gi, with prices march/april 2015

ranging from roughly $15 to $40 a head depending on the size of the menu. Events often feature mass Ghanaian Azonto dancing and sociable table-hopping, with conviviality being a huge part of the ethos. Zoe’s ever-changing menu serves up a mixture of contemporary and traditional homemade dishes based on meals from her childhood, such as nkatenkwan — peanut-butter stew with slow-cooked lamb. A comforting delight, it’s infused with fiery scotch bonnet peppers, which offset the creamy nuttiness of the melting meat. Her “bites,” or finger foods, are pretty special too: mashed yam balls (a compact combination of deep fried yam and potato), as well as hot platters of sweet fried plantains and barbecued suya kebabs (a Nigerian influence). The Groundnut and ZGK share a mutual respect for each other, as well as a philosophy to promote a fun, heartfelt entrée into African culture for a broad audience. “London is a gold mine for great food,” Zoe says, admitting that the competition keeps her on her toes. “I embrace any new pop-ups bringing forward new food ideas and concepts, especially anything from the African continent.” It’s this type of thinking that is ultimately helping these two pop-ups to successfully usher African food into London’s culinary fold. It may be nothing to sample French, Asian and other successfully marketed international cuisines throughout the capital, but now — as palates are introduced to everything from wats (spicy Ethiopian stews) to waakye (Ghanaian rice and beans) — an African food movement has begun.

The fresh ingredients and convivial spirit involved in each pop-up meal have drawn a far-reaching following from event to event.

Qatar’s Culture Capital Once considered simply a place to change planes, Qatar has emerged, seemingly out of nowhere, onto the global arts scene. At the heart of the action shines Doha — the country’s capital, quickly becoming one of the leading cultural capitals of the Middle East. Here, our top picks of the city’s arts-and-culture offerings.

JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER DOHA

Jazz at Lincoln Center — New York City’s iconic jazz venue — has a permanent sister location in Doha. With seating for 120 people, the club features a rotating lineup of musicians and bands selected by the legendary Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s longtime artistic director. With full dinner service and performances six nights a week, the venue gives visitors an authentic New York–style jazz experience in the heart of Qatar.

AL MARKHIYA GALLERY

Located alongside several galleries in the Souq Waqif — Doha’s restored open-air market — Al Markhiya stands out as the region’s art ambassador, spotlighting the works of local painters, photographers and sculptors. Its “40 Minus” event, in particular, keeps its pulse on emerging contemporary art, scouting out and promoting undiscovered Arab talents aged 40 and under. 68

KATARA CULTURAL VILLAGE

Boasting theaters, concert halls, galleries and more, Katara Cultural Village stands as a beacon for multiculturalism and artistic exchange in the Middle East. From literature and music to visual art and film, Katara’s offerings seek to challenge the cultural norms and boundaries of the region.

MATHAF: ARAB MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Celebrating modern and contemporary art, MATHAF provides a uniquely Arabic perspective toward the international art scene. Loaded with permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as project space and programs for students, the museum fosters both learning and creation within its walls.

Built as a stand-alone island amid water and surrounded by a park, the museum is the first of its kind in the area. But the artwork and architecture aren’t the only attractions — the museum’s restaurant IDAM boasts haute French cuisine with a distinctive Arab twist, and its views of the Doha harbor keep visitors dazzled.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner In August 2012, Ethiopian became the first airline in the world outside Japan to receive and operate the B-787 Dreamliner. Currently, the airline is the largest operator of the aircraft in Africa. The B-787 is ideal for mid- and long-range travel, as its unique features greatly enhance the customer experience: an audio and video ondemand entertainment system, greatly reduced noise, higher cabin air humidity, adaptable lighting, and the biggest windows in the sky. It also enables the airline to reduce its carbon footprint, with up to 20-percent less fuel consumption than similar aircraft.
