From the CEO |

Welcome Aboard Esteemed Customers,

I

want to share with you major developments that are transforming the Ethiopian tourism sector and will surely make our country your preferred destination when planning your next holiday travel. With nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Ethiopia is endowed with a variety and depth of natural, historical, cultural and religious riches that have yet to be fully discovered by the world. From the sites where our ancestors first set foot and the world’s oldest hominid fossils were discovered, to the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and the ancient walled city of Harar, Ethiopia has everything and more to offer you as your next holiday destination. All of these unique attractions are now complemented by the necessary infrastructure for tourism, thanks to the huge investments made by the Ethiopian government, the high-standard accommodations, our extensive international and domestic network of air connectivity, and a new nationally integrated tourism structure.  In March 2014, the Ethiopian Tourism Transformation Council was officially launched in the presence of H.E. Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn. The council will include all stakeholders in the tourism industry value chain, both private and public. The council is tasked with guiding the newly established Ethiopian Tourism Organization and its supervisory board, so that Ethiopian tourism is adequately developed and promoted to meet your high expectations and global standards. As a member of the Tourism Transformation Council and chair of the board of the Ethiopian Tourism Organization, I — along with my leadership team at Ethiopian Airlines — will be playing a catalyst role in transforming the country’s tourism sector. We have revamped our own in-house tour operations, Ethiopian Holidays, to provide attractive leisure, historical, cultural and other comprehensive tour packages — all of which you can access through multiple sales outlets, including our worldwide sales offices, website, and travel agencies and tour operators. We have already established an extensive network of international destinations across five continents and are covering the major tourismoriginating countries. Additionally, our excellent connectivity to 18 domestic routes will give you convenient access to all of our national tourism sites. Most of our routes are operated daily, offering a wide menu of choices. Onboard the B787 Dreamliner and B-777-200LR — the world’s newest and longest-range commercial airplanes — we will connect you virtually from your doorstep to our domestic network. That network is served with the latest and New Generation Bombardier Q-400 aircraft, which are perfectly suited for short-distance trips. Lastly, you will enjoy our award-winning on-board services with our hallmark African-flavored Ethiopian hospitality. In our Cloud Nine Business Class, we even provide a taste of our culture through uniquely Ethiopian culinary delights. So come and discover the rich history, natural beauty and friendly hospitality of Ethiopia. Thank you for choosing to fly Ethiopian. We appreciate your business and will continue to work hard to Tewolde GebreMariam earn it. Have a pleasant flight!

Chief Executive Officer, Ethiopian Airlines

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam (middle) celebrates the airline’s Customers Day alongside the former South African president, Thabo Mbeki (at left), and the former president of Nigeria, Abdulsalami Alhaji Abubakar.

CELEBRATING CUSTOMERS DAY Ethiopian Airlines celebrated its Customers Day on Feb. 15 at the African Union Conference Hall in the presence of government officials and more than 1,000 Sheba Miles Gold members. Prominent guests included the former South African president, H.E. Mr. Thabo Mbeki, and the former president of Nigeria, H.E. Abdulsalami Alhaji Abubakar. The following tribute is excerpted from a speech shared by loyal customer Abdul Mohammed in celebration of the special day: We are all here because of Ethiopian Airlines, in more ways than one. A lot of us here flew to Addis Ababa on Ethiopian Airlines, and so in the most practical sense, our presence here is a tribute to the carrier that brought us safely to this country. And we are here in Addis Ababa because it is the diplomatic capital of Africa, the seat of the African Union, and the preferred destination for so many. One of the reasons why Addis Ababa has maintained its standing is because Ethiopian Airlines flies to every corner of the continent, and beyond. Ethiopian Airlines is a premier African institution. It was founded 65 years ago, with support from TransWorld Airlines. Ethiopian Airlines has outlived its mentor, and indeed, while airlines around the world have staggered from one financial crisis to the next, Ethiopian has maintained a superb credit rating.

DOING GOOD Ethiopian Airlines was started with a Pan-African vision of connecting the newly independent countries of the continent. While most other airlines focused on linking African countries to their former colonial capitals, Ethiopian crisscrossed the continent, breaking down artificial boundaries inherited from the colonial era. Not only that, but Ethiopian developed an ethos of self-reliance, training its own pilots, technicians and crew, and also providing a center of excellence where airline professionals from across Africa could come and gain the skills and expertise they needed. During the years of recession, austerity and political “The airline turmoil, Ethiopian Airlines maintained its corporate identity. It invested in its human resources and developed a is an strong bond of loyalty among its staff. It has the highest institution standards of professionalism and an enviable work ethic. And as Africa has begun to rise economically, with in which we expanding economies, increasing intra-African trade and can take a fast-expanding middle class, Ethiopia found itself posipride, and an tioned to take advantage of this market — and in turn to contribute to Africa’s renaissance. example to Ethiopian Airlines anticipated the surge of the emergemulate.” ing economies, not just in Africa, but in Asia and Latin America also. For Africans, Ethiopian Airlines has become more than a practical asset that can transport them around the continent reliably and safely. It is also an emblem, an institution in which we can take pride, and an example to emulate. The success story of Ethiopian Airlines confounds those who question Africa’s ability to run modern institutions efficiently, profitably and sustainably. The company record demonstrates how Africa can engage and succeed in a globally competitive and capital-intensive industry. Ethiopian Airlines is truly an African flag carrier, a testament to the potential of Pan-Africanism. I am confident that as Africa continues to rise over the next 50 years, Ethiopian Airlines will continue to expand, prosper and contribute to leading the way.

NOTEWORTHY WILL LAUNCH four weekly flights to Vienna, the political capital and economic hub of Austria, on June 2. Through cooperation with fellow Star Alliance member Austrian Airlines, Ethiopian also plans to provide convenient options for travelers between Africa and European cities such Prague, Bratislava, Warsaw, Budapest and Bucharest. RECEIVED the 2013 Gold Boeing Performance Excellence Award for its outstanding performance at the Wire Kits Harness Manufacturing plant. The plant is one of only 124 suppliers to be awarded the goldlevel recognition, among thousands of Boeing suppliers worldwide.

ANNOUNCED the signing of a €107-million contract (almost US$177 million) to construct its second cargo terminal, to be completed within the next two years. The terminal will accommodate 600,000 tons per year and park five B747-800 aircraft at a time. Its completion will be followed immediately by the construction of a third cargo terminal, making Ethiopian one of the world’s largest air cargo operators. CELEBRATED the first international flight for Malawian Airlines, its strategic partner in southern Africa. Malawian launched daily flights from Lilongwe to Johannesburg in February, with a stopover in Blantyre, using the brand-new Boeing 737-800.

RECORDBREAKING DELIVERIES OF HUMANITARIAN SUPPLIES Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing recently partnered with two nonprofit organizations — Seattle Anesthesia Outreach and Evangelical Africa Mission Outreach — to transport 3,311 kilograms of medical and educational supplies to Addis Ababa. The supplies arrived for Black Lion Hospital aboard a newly delivered Boeing 777-300ER plane, along with more than 100 computers for Ethiopia’s Goba High School. This latest flight is part of Boeing’s longrunning Humanitarian Delivery Flights program, begun in 1992. Ethiopian Airlines has been a significant partner in the program, undertaking the highest number of humanitarian flights of any airline, with a total of 19. In the past 10 years alone, Ethiopian has transported nearly 70,000 kilograms of humanitarian supplies — approximately the equivalent weight of 10 adult African elephants. “We are grateful for Ethiopian Airlines’ longstanding partnership and their commitment to bringing supplies to local communities,” said Elizabeth Warman, director of Boeing Global Corporate Citizenship for the Northwest region. “Their dedication is humbling, and it is our honor to support them in this work.”

COFFEE WITH A DASH OF CULTURE In a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, beans are pan-roasted, pestle-ground and brewed in a boiling pot. Then the divine black stuff is poured into porcelain with no halting of the stream between cups. If you’re thirsty for the flavorful brew and a taste of tradition, you’re in luck: Many restaurants in Addis Ababa serve up rituals like this one, accompanied by displays of song and dance in addition to timehonored fare.

Around Addis

ETHIOPIAN EATS

No visitor to Addis should leave without indulging in the flavors of authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Thankfully, the city is filled with a growing variety of traditional restaurants, from lively tukul huts to quiet breakfast nooks.

Favorite Flavors 16

selamtamagazine.com

2000 HABESHA

Prominently located across from the main commercial strip of lower Bole Road, 2000 Habesha caters to a mix of tourists and local diners. The restaurant serves a full buffet of Ethiopian cuisine (as well as a la carte options), and presents a nightly show filled with vibrant music and dance. 2000habesha.net

INJERA — a spongy, fermented flatbread

TOTOT

DASHEN

Totot gives visitors a taste of the Gurage region in southwestern Ethiopia with dishes such as totot special kitfo, minced meat coated in spices and butter and served with the Ethiopian spiced cheese ayb. The restaurant’s exterior mimics a traditional Gurage village abode (a straw house with wooden pillars and straw tapestries), and the open interior is oriented to give diners a view of the colorful Gurage dance show. totottraditionalhall.com

YESHI BUNA

Within walking distance of Addis’ main international hotels, Dashen hides behind an unassuming facade. Enjoy its famous fish dishes (in which the catch is served whole with slices of lime) and popular tasting menu in a cozy, casual atmosphere. Live traditional music performances add energy on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Tel: +251 115 516 767

WOET — similar to spicy curries or stews

Start your morning the Ethiopian way at Yeshi Buna, serving popular local breakfast dishes along with freshly brewed Ethiopian coffee. Savor the kinche, made from cracked barley and clarified butter, or chechebsa, a spiced flatbread dish. The restaurant has several locations across Addis Ababa, where you can welcome the new day. yeshibuna.com

YOD ABYSSINIA

Inside this traditional tukul (cone-shaped mud hut), a buffet of savory Ethiopian dishes serves up to 300 guests. Try the zilzil tibs (meat cooked in spices) or the beyaynetu (veggies and sauces on a bed of injera). A hostess pours coffee into dozens of tiny porcelain cups, part of a traditional coffee ceremony.

Diplomacy + Development

A generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is helping Heifer International continue its East Africa Dairy Development Program. The "Milk for Health and Wealth" initiative aims to give small farmers better access to the dairy industry, yielding a better profit, a healthier product and sustainable jobs. Phase one began in Kenya and Uganda in 2008 (also funded by the Gates Foundation); phase two will grow existing programs and begin service in Tanzania.

SOARING SIGNALS

SUN-POWERED

In Kenya, public and private parties are working together to see a bright idea take shape: They’re making plans to build nine solar-power plants (estimated at US$1.2 billion), so that by the time the project is completed, more than half of the country’s electricity will be solar-sourced. Pushing the alternative-energy envelope even further, Kenya is also engineering the largest wind farm in sub-Saharan Africa.

Internet connection may be coming to remote parts of Brazil in the form of . . . balloons. The Conectar project, based out of Brazil's National Institute for Space Research, is developing large balloons capable of transmitting Internet signals to regions like the Amazon. Tests over São Paulo in 2013 showed promising results; the project plans to establish a functioning balloon in northeast Brazil by the end of 2014.

Hotels + Hotspots

SÃO PAULO

RIO DE JANEIRO

HOTEL NOVOTEL RIO DE JANEIRO SANTOS DUMONT

Not a beach bum? Settle into downtown Rio. Rates are cheaper than in beachfront areas, and cultural hotspots like the new Museu de Arte do Rio and the History Museum are close by. The hotel also offers free bicycles for exploring the city or for casual rides along Park Flamengo. Of course, if you need to cool off, the beach is just a bus ride away.

The graceful, boat-like architecture will lure you inside, where modern design reigns and large windows provide grand views of the city. Relax in the nearby Ibirapuera Park or walk the sculpture garden at the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art. Boasting Latin America’s largest collection of European art, the museum houses works by masters like Cézanne and Degas alongside Brazilian art.

For a more personal stay in Rio, Marta’s beachfront guest house is a top pick. Situated along Copacabana Beach, the 1940s art-deco building offers six private suites and is finely decorated with Brazilian antiques. Plus, Marta’s years in the tourism industry make her the perfect hostess and guide for experiencing Rio.

IPANEMA INN

MELIA JARDIM EUROPA

Here in the modern Itaim Bibi district of São Paulo, you’ll be surrounded by fantastic options for culture, shopping, food and drink. Join the locals for happy hour at Vaca Veia, then dance the night away to Brazilian music at Passatempo. Futebol fans: Don’t miss The Football Museum, in the Estádio do Pacaembu, only a 15-minute drive from the hotel. 24

AIRBnB STUDIO: PAULISTA AVE & PARKS

Perfect for solo travelers or pairs, this quiet, comfortable spot is well maintained by host Sonia (who speaks English, Spanish and French). Its prime location puts visitors near plenty of shops and eateries for tastes of local flavor. Spend the afternoon lounging in Aclimaçāo Park or hop on the subway for a day trip — both are conveniently close by.

A stay here positions guests between Ipanema Beach and everything else this vibrant city has to offer. Modern amenities such as eco flooring, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi keep guests comfortable and connected, though you may find it hard to stay inside with so much to do nearby. Peruse the Ipanema shopping district or sample the bars and restaurants on Leblon street — both only a short walk away. For authentic Brazilian fare, try the stone-cooked picanha (a popular cut of beef) at Garota de Ipanema.

A BUSINESS INVESTMENT DESTINATION

constantly improving political and social stability, and an open business environment, make burundi an attractive investment destination. Indeed, since 2012, Burundi is ranked for three consecutive times among the top ten countries best reformers of the world in the Doing Business Reports by IFC of the World Bank. Moreover, Burundi’s strategic location at the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) market, the largest Regional Economic Community in Africa with a population of over 430 million and a combined GDP of over USD 447 billion and its membership in the East African Community blocks is an added advantage for investors. Burundi is one of the best countries in Africa where to invest due to its investment code with attractive incentives. Burundi remains also

one of the best destinations for business and investment in many sectors: agriculture and livestock, energy and mining, tourism, transport infrastructures, hotels, industry, ICT, services, health, education etc. Potential investors are therefore invited to explore these opportunities offered by Burundi, to initiate business and investment and to enjoy the best and attractive business climate and the legendary hospitality of the people of Burundi.

MAKING THINGS NEW

PAPER SHOES

After a 15-month journey and more than 500 prototypes, the world’s first paper shoe has hit the pavement. Designed by the team behind Unbelievable Testing Laboratory, the Light Wing line of trainers and slip-ons are colorful and sleek and weigh in at an amazingly light 150 grams. And because the shoes are constructed from Dupont TYVEK paper, they’re waterproof and incredibly strong too — the perfect pair for urban streets.

TREES AS TEXTILES The Tel Aviv studio Tesler + Mendelovitch recently embarked on a daunting design mission: to transform wood into a textile. Though the idea sounds clunky, the resulting line of “wood skin” clutches — elegant and actually quite flexible — reflects their smashing success. Made from ebony, rosewood, walnut and birch with a leather lining, the architectural-looking, geometricpatterned designs are timeless yet innovative, just like the material itself.

The bicycle has long been touted as one of the most energyefficient modes of transportation out there. But now, a Thai design group is taking it one step further — developing a plan for a bike that actually cleans pollution as it cruises. The air-purifier bike conceived by Bangkok’s Lightfog Creative & Design Company will run on a “photosynthesis system,” generating oxygen as it’s pedaled. Who said an old dog (or bicycle) couldn’t learn new tricks?

For those who like their cars and their morning java fast and furious, Johannesburg-based Espresso Veloce recently introduced its V12 espresso machine. In homage to the grand prix race car engines of the 1990s, the V12 dispenses the brew from one of six titanium exhaust pipes; it even has an “oil reservoir” at the top of the engine block that can be filled with coffee-infusing liquors. Talk about a morning pick-me-up.

This summer, the football World

CÔTE D’IVOIRE Les Éléphants qualified for their third consecutive appearance at the World Cup finals in style, with a 4-2 aggregate victory over rival Senegal. Despite boasting some of football’s star names in recent years, their greatest achievement remains their victory in the 1992 Africa Nations Cup. So far, their World Cup displays have been underwhelming. Last time around they were coached by Sven Goran Eriksson, but they faced a hugely challenging schedule against powerhouses Brazil and Portugal, and were eliminated in the first round. Côte d’Ivoire has a host of stylish strikers: talisman and captain Didier Drogba, Wilfried “Mr. Cool” Bony and the enormous 6’8’’ Lacina Traore, who is likely to be the tallest player at this year’s tournament. But its best player is midfield general Yaya Toure, who has developed into one of the most exciting talents in the English Premier League. The elegant Toure specializes in lung-bursting surges through the midfield and has also become a freekick specialist for his club Manchester City. Watch out, too, for Serge Aurier, a young and highly talented full-back. Prediction | Round of 16

The Black Stars have a good claim to being Africa’s most popular team. The four-time continental champions reached their first-ever World Cup in 2006 and made it look easy by reaching the second round after victories over the USA and the Czech Republic. Just as they did in 2010, Ghana will play Germany in the group stage, meaning that two brothers will face each other on different national teams — Kevin Prince-Boateng for Ghana and defender Jerome Boateng for Germany. Ghana always has a strong midfield, and the team will be relying on Asamoah Gyan up front once again to provide the firepower. Gyan has already played in two World Cups, scoring three goals in the 2010 edition but missing the crucial penalty against Uruguay. He has a dance named after him, as well as a hiplife tune, “Asamoah Gyan Penalty Miss Song,” that tells the story of his unfortunate mistake in the last World Cup.

knocked out. The swashbuckling Ghanaians made it to the final eight, only to be cruelly eliminated in a penalty shootout by Uruguay. A continent held its breath and started to dream that, soon, an African nation would be crowned world champions. Four years on, and the World Cup is back at the forefront of every football fan’s mind. The continent’s hopes are rekindled once again, yet few fans of the world’s most-popular sport would dispute that if there is one nation on earth to which the World Cup can be said to belong, it is Brazil. Of all 19 previous tournaments, Brazil has won the title five times — more than any other nation. Usually, no two football fans can agree on anything. Yet there is an international consensus on two facts: that the greatest team ever to have played the sport was the Brazilian team that triumphed in Mexico in 1970; and that the talisman of that team — the electric forward known as Pelé — is the best footballer of all time. Pelé holds the world record for goal scoring and is the only player ever to win three World Cups, his first when he was just 17 years old. In Brazil, he is known simply as O Rei (“The King”). Brazil goes into this year’s tournament as the undisputed favorite to carry off trophy No. 6, what with the whole football-mad nation cheering them on, a young and talented squad, and the tactical cunning of “Big Phil” Scolari — the wily coach who led the team to victory at the 2002 World Cup. Yet Brazilians will be haunted by the memory of the only other time their nation hosted the World Cup. In 1950, a gifted seleção (the Brazilian nickname for the national team) swept through all the competition until Uruguay, a match that Brazil was widely expected to win with ease. The nation prepared to celebrate its first world title. Instead, an estimated crowd of more than 200,000 watched in shock as the tiny neighboring country claimed the trophy with a winning goal just 10 minutes from the end. The devastating defeat, known as the Maracanaço, is still mourned as a Brazilian national tragedy. The stakes this summer could not be higher. A second failure in a home World Cup — a second Maracanaço — is a terrifying prospect for Brazilian fans.

(2008 and 2012). Already, some pundits claim that Spain’s current dominance means it ought to be seriously considered one of the greatest sides in the history of the sport. If Spain can do what no team has ever done — successfully defend the World Cup at the home of football — the debate will be over: Pelé’s Brazilian team of 1970 will no longer be considered the best ever, and football will have reached a new zenith. To add to the intrigue, Spain’s most exciting player is a Brazilian. The ferocious striker Diego Costa last year made the astonishing decision to reject the country of his birth and instead represent Spain, where he is a naturalized citizen. Due to the team’s rich wealth of talent in midfield, Spain has sustained its success in recent years despite not boasting a top-level center-forward. In Costa, the team now has one of the world’s elite strikers, and the Brazilians are furious. “He is turning his back on the dreams of millions,” seethed national coach Scolari, on hearing that Costa had chosen Spain. The only outcome that would be worse for Brazil than a Spanish victory would be an Argentinean one. The two nations are old foes, having jointly dominated South American football for many decades. The one serious rival to Pelé in the pantheon of the sport’s greatest players is Diego Armando Maradona, who in 1986 captained Argentina to its second world title. Argentina has performed disappointingly in the past few World Cup tournaments, but just as in 1986, the team will once again have the world’s best player: the astounding Barcelona forward Lionel Messi (four times crowned world player of the year). If he can repeat Maradona’s achievement of carrying a solid but unspectacular generation of teammates to the World Cup, he will likely be seen as having surpassed not just El Diego, but Pelé too. And then, of course, there are the Germans, four-time world champions. This time around, Germany goes into the tournament with a hugely talented squad drawn in large part from Bayern Munich, currently the dominant club in world football. The well-oiled team blends seasoned veterans with young, exciting attacking players. It would be a surprise if Die Mannschaft weren’t a major threat at this World Cup.

NIGERIA The African champions go to Brazil with a young and united squad, led by former team captain Stephen Keshi, known as “Big Boss.” Since 1994, the Super Eagles have now qualified for five of six World Cups, reaching the second round on two occasions. Striker Rashidi Yekini’s exuberant celebration after scoring Nigeria’s first-ever World Cup goal against Bulgaria was one of the indelible images of that competition. In 1998, the team recorded another famous victory with a 3-2 win over muchfancied Spain. Its last two World Cup appearances have been disappointing. Reportedly, officials at the Nigerian football association were so upset with striker Yakubu Ayegbeni for his glaring miss against South Korea in 2010 that they refused to contact him for over a year. Keshi has built a resilient team with a strong winning mentality, and Nigerians will be hoping that captain Vincent Enyeama and lynchpin John Obi Mikel can lead the team to new heights in Brazil.

The Indomitable Lions have a rich history in the World Cup, having qualified on seven occasions — more than any other African side. In Spain in 1982, they achieved a famous 1-1 tie with Italy, who went on to win the tournament. In 1990 they did even better, inspired by 38-year-old Roger Milla, whom President Paul Biya had personally coaxed out of retirement for the competition. Milla scored four goals and became world famous by celebrating each one with an extravagant hip-wiggling dance at the corner flag. Their key man this time around is likely to be veteran Chelsea forward Samuel Eto’o, who was once the highest-paid footballer in the world. The Indomitable Lions won the gold medal in the soccer competition at the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000, and later made headlines around the world after FIFA banned their innovative all-in-one “onesie” kit. Their most exciting young talent is 18-year-old Barcelona striker Jean Marie Dongou. Having made his debut for the Catalan giants earlier in the season, it would be no surprise if Dongou burst onto the international scene this summer. Prediction | Group-stage exit

CAMEROON

The future of football: Africa? Back in 1977, Pelé insisted that an African team would be world champions by the year 2000. Fourteen years into the new millennium, Africa is still awaiting its first World Cup semifinalist, although Cameroon (1990), Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010) have all reached the last eight. Although few expect to see an African name on the World Cup trophy in July, five qualifying teams have set their sights on Brazil to fight hard for the chance. European bookmakers slate Côte d’Ivoire as the most likely of the African sides to do well, mainly due to the relatively kind draw that will see the Elephants take on Colombia, Greece and Japan in Group C. In truth, the best years of Côte d’Ivoire’s golden generation — of Didier Drogba and the Toure brothers — are behind it, and the younger generation of players has struggled to step up. And yet, even with an inexperienced coach in Sabri Lamouchi and a somewhat patchy squad, the country should have enough to make it into the knockout round. Africa’s two best teams are Ghana, whose thrilling run to the quarterfinals of the last tournament remains seared into the memory of African supporters, and reigning continental champions Nigeria. The Black Stars possess a fluid, disciplined and cohesive team, and an impressive coach in James Kwesi Appiah. With flair players such as Christian Atsu, Kevin Prince-Boateng and Dede Ayew, they have a wealth of potential match-winners. The difficulty for Ghana will be a very tough draw, which has placed them in Group G alongside Germany, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and the United States of America. That said, the Black Stars defeated the USA in each of the past two tournaments, and if they can take three points from that tie and find a draw with one of the European sides, they’ll have an excellent chance of making it into the next round, where they’d be a real threat to any team. The Super Eagles of Nigeria will face a difficult tie against Argentina but also very winnable matches against Iran and first-time finalists Bosnia. Under Stephen “Big Boss” Keshi, the African

Cameroon, England, the USA and Italy will all play in the 42,000-seater stadium, where conditions are expected to be extremely humid. England has already lined up a pre-tournament training camp in sweltering Miami, Florida, to acclimatize.

champions have developed into a gritty and resolute international side that is always tough to beat. Chelsea’s vastly experienced midfielder John Obi Mikel remains the lynchpin, and Nigeria is no stranger to the World Cup, having appeared at the tournament on four previous occasions. Super Eagles fans will be praying there is no repeat of the team’s shambolic display in South Africa four years ago, and they will take heart from a spirited qualifying campaign that saw them overcome a brave Ethiopian side in the winner-takes-all playoff round. The Walias had overcome all odds to reach that tie, dumping giants South Africa in the group stage and wowing international audiences with their bold attacking football and ear-splittingly loud supporters. But the Walias finally came unstuck against a tough Nigeria side. The fate of Cameroon and Algeria is more difficult to predict. Algeria is in Group H with a much-fancied Belgian side, as well as Russia and South Korea. Having struggled to score in recent tournaments, the Fennec Foxes may find this tournament difficult. In Group A against host Brazil, Cameroon will also play Mexico and Croatia, two nations that — like the Indomitable Lions themselves — boast high-caliber players who have struggled in recent years. In Nicholas N’Koulou, Alex Song and the great Samuel Eto’o, Cameroon possesses the spine of a decent team, but it would be a surprise if the team were to repeat the kind of heroics that saw the legendary Roger Milla dancing by the corner-flag for the world’s cameras back in 1990. The World Cup’s return to its spiritual home this June promises four weeks chock-full of glamour and goals. Even as Brazil hopes to take the big trophy, the five African nations that journey to Brazil know that should they manage to leave their mark, they will never be forgotten. And each time they take to the field across the 12 host cities, they will have a whole continent at their back, rooting for them to score and praying for them to win. In bars and beer halls, in shebeens and schoolyards, from the grandest city center to the farthest rural hamlet, all across Africa they will watch and they will listen. A whistle will sound thousands of miles away, and the beautiful game will begin on its greatest stage.

ALGERIA The Fennec Foxes are seasoned veterans of three World Cups. Back in 1982, in the golden era of Algerian football, the team stunned the world with a 2-1 victory over reigning European champions West Germany on the very first day of the competition. Lakhdar Belloumi, commonly regarded as Algeria’s greatest-ever player (and credited as the inventor of the “blind pass”), scored the winner that day. Algeria was only eliminated from the 1982 tournament after Austria and West Germany infamously cooperated in the final group match to eliminate the Algerians and send the European sides to the next round. After the Germans scored in the first 10 minutes, both teams passed the ball around aimlessly without attempting to score another goal, and the game went down in history as Nichtangriffspakt von Gijón (“the non-aggression pact of Gijón”), after the Spanish city where it was played. Coached by former Bosnian great Vahid Halilhodžić, Algeria’s current squad is a blend of youth and experience, with promising talents such as Saphir Taider lining up alongside richly experienced players such as defensive rock Madjid Bougherra. Prediction | Round of 16

MEET FULECO The official mascot is Fuleco, a member of an endangered species of armadillo endemic to Brazil. Elected by the Brazilian public, Fuleco will succeed past mascots such as a lion, World Cup Willie (England, 1966), an orange named Naranjito (Spain, 1982), and Striker, the World Cup Pup (USA, 1994).

At dawn, the sun creeps over the hills to the east to greet a lone fisherman tugging on his net, bringing in the night’s catch. The fishermen who dot the lake keep to themselves for the most part, working in small handmade boats called tankwas, made from papyrus reeds. It is a peaceful scene. And a lonely one. Papyrus boat-making — once a vital activity that has built fleets and shaped the course of empires — now only exists as a sustained part of a local economy here, on Lake Tana, just off Bahir Dar in northwest Ethiopia. “Bahir Dar” literally means “by the sea.” The term can also describe a big lake, and that fits Lake Tana. Covering more than 3,000 square kilometers, Lake Tana is by far the largest body of water in Ethiopia. “It’s almost impossible to imagine Bahir Dar without the lake,” says tour guide Mistru Kebede. “It’s the lifeline for the town.” Mistru has lived his whole life in Bahir Dar, which is less of a town lately and more of a city — Ethiopia’s third-largest, with roughly 200,000

residents. Wide, palm-lined streets define the northern edge of the city, cradling the lake. The city also hosts Bahir Dar University, which recently expanded to welcome 40,000 students, as well as a thriving arts scene and a growing textile industry. Lake Tana itself is the source of the Blue Nile, which then winds through the Sudan, combining with the White Nile to form the world’s longest river system. Though upstream hydroelectric projects have reduced the flow to the Blue Nile Falls, the rainy season can still present a spectacular display. The lake is also bejeweled with 37 islands, many of which host churches and monasteries that trace their roots back to the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. Filled with ancient manuscripts and Orthodox artifacts, many have been identified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for restoration and special protection. These connections to the past help draw more than 130,000 visitors to Bahir Dar every year. Few visitors, however, may realize that the papyrus boats floating tranquilly on the lake represent an even deeper historical connection. Over the centuries Papyrus boats are mentioned in the Bible, first with a mother’s memorable efforts to save baby Moses by floating him down the Nile in a makeshift boat of reeds. Later, the prophet Isaiah speaks of the nation of Cush — referring to Ethiopia — “which sends ambassadors by the sea, in vessels of papyrus on the waters” (Isaiah 18:2). Deeply embedded in world history, the papyrus plant was once essential to human progress. In addition to boat-making, ancient Egyptians adapted it for cooking, medicine, household uses, even architecture. Papyrus paper helped spread

written communications in the Western world for more than 2,000 years. Ancient Roman author Pliny the Elder noted in his Natural History that during the reign of firstcentury emperor Tiberius, a papyrus crop failure made paper so scarce that senators were assigned to supervise its distribution, without which “all the ordinary relations of life would have been completely disarranged.” Today, papyrus scarcely grows in Egypt, and papyrus boats can only be found inscribed onto ancient artwork. Yet those early images bear remarkable resemblance to the boats being built near the shores of Lake Tana. It’s believed that the Negede Weyto people group traveled up the Blue Nile from the Sudan or Egypt to Lake Tana centuries ago, and their craft has been passed on ever since. Weaving his way through a patch of wild papyrus in the swampy, shallow water along the lake’s edge, Saidu Alem looks for plants to harvest for his next boat, as he has for much of his seven-plus decades. The plants dwarf him. He slices each stalk above the root, choosing only enough to easily carry home, where he will then cut them into strips and let them dry for weeks before beginning to build. The once-pliant green strips of papyrus turn light brown and stiff. They are then overlaid in bundles and tied together, defining the shape of the boat’s hull. A second papyrus bundle is fashioned into a seat, giving stability and a little height for the boat’s driver. The front and back of the boat are pulled up and tied off again and again, tapering the

ends and giving the bow an upward lift. A papyrus fishing boat is long and narrow — slightly wider than Saidu but easily more than twice his height. It can be crafted over a couple of days, although larger boats — some built to carry passengers or two oarsmen with cargo — can take quite a bit longer. “I started off twisting ropes for my father, who made papyrus boats — and he learned it from his father,” says another boat maker, Ahmadi Dawd. He made his first boat some five decades ago. “It’s come down from generation to generation.” Over the decades, a commercial community has formed around Lake Tana boat-making, with boats being sold for both fishing and basic transport. Fishermen typically use their smaller boats on a daily basis. After the day’s catch is hauled in, each will carry his boat — amazingly lightweight — and lean it against a tree to dry out for the next use. Because these boats are constantly cycling through wet and dry, they last only two to three months.

The approach across the lake makes a striking scene: The bright, hazy sky reflects onto the brown water, the line between them barely detectible except for the boats, one or two abreast set against a seemingly infinite horizon. From a distance they look like a stealthy invasion fleet. Closer, the work is obvious as the men stab their oars deep into the water. The gentle glide of the fishing boats on the water is nowhere to be seen. Yet even strength of will or centuries of tradition may not be enough to resist papyrus boat-building’s slow retreat into history. Such boats are no longer built in Egypt. In the Sudan, where papyrus supply is abundant, reed boats are rare and not used for fishing. Once dominant in Lake Chad in central Africa, papyrus boats have largely been replaced by modern boat-making. Similar reed boats are built and sold in Lake Titicaca, bordering Peru and Bolivia in South America, but they are made from a different plant altogether. Papyrus supplies along Lake Tana are much less abundant than in the past, as more shore area is converted for development or full-time cultivation. And as the supply of papyrus fades, so does the number of people dedicated to the craft. “Back in the day, children from our tribe grew up to make boats and fences of papyrus grasses,” Ahmadi says. Today, however, young people are pursuing an education, becoming doctors and

The firewood run Larger papyrus boats also form part of the rhythm of life on the lake — moving goods from outlying areas into market at Bahir Dar. Every Friday morning, for example, people carry firewood down to the shoreline of Zege, the bulbous peninsula that stands sentry over the southern end of Lake Tana. For the men loading wood onto their papyrus boats, the trip involves four or more hours of hard rowing across a gulf at the end of the lake to

Sunrise on Lake Tana: When will the final day dawn for the last papyrus boat fisherman?

Even strength of will or centuries of tradition may not be enough to lawyers in Bahir Dar, all while the local government encourages fishing in modern boats by larger, more sustainable cooperatives. However peaceful the view may be of tankwas floating atop the lake, the boats’ future looks bleak. Perhaps one day not too far from now, a lone fisherman will glide slowly along the water, heading toward shore. Having lost out to fishing cooperatives with more modern boats and methods, his catch will prove disappointing, and his boat will cost too much to replace. After preparing his fish for market, he will — out of habit alone — carry his boat to dry against a nearby tree, where it will warm all afternoon until the sun sets for the last time on the papyrus boat fishermen of Lake Tana.

taurants and a handful of design stores now live within the buildings, but be sure to check out Yaang Life, which sells European-inspired Shanghainese stationary, home décor items and accessories. 12:30 p.m. Back along the main Plaza, stop by 05 Ming Tang for a light and healthy Chinese lunch. The first organic restaurant in Shanghai, Ming Tang uses only produce from the company’s own local farms. MSG-free dishes arrive at your table fresh and flavorful, thanks to an emphasis on flash-frying and steaming. Tuck into items such as steamed Mandarin fish in black-bean paste, chilled calamari with mustard sauce, and stuffed organic string beans with minced pork and water chestnuts. 2:00 p.m. From Ming Tang, walk southward along Zhongshan South Road and turn right on Dongjiadu Road. Here, you’ll see the Spanish baroque-style 06 Saint Francis Xavier Church. Built in 1853, it’s the city’s oldest church and one of the few where Mass is celebrated in English on weekends. Opposite the church stands the 07 Marine Merchant’s Guildhall. Built by boat owners from Fujian province who would meet to socialize and drink tea, the hall’s wood-carved archways with its gilded eaves and engravings of the folk goddess Mazu have borne witness to many a convivial evening of banter and tales of high-sea adventure. As the last remaining guildhall in Shanghai, the building is protected by the Huangpu District government, but it’s easy enough to sneak past the guard for a closer look. 4:00 p.m. Head back toward the Plaza for a cool drink before some serious shopping.

Worth looking into are Wu Yun Fang and Building #15. Wu Yun Fang specializes in agate, a precious stone prized in Chinese feng shui at very reasonable prices.

Dinner awaits at Table No. 1, award-winning chef Jason Atherton’s gastro-bar restaurant, located within The Waterhouse at South Bund. The restaurant’s threadbare interior is designed to resemble a communal dining room, inviting guests to socialize over dishes such as roasted turbot fish with saffron mash, crab salad and salsa verde.

Ni Nyampinga Promoting a positive identity among Rwandan girls. |

he students at Marie Adelaide school in Gihara, Rwanda, line up in the schoolyard. They are a sea of regulation yellow and blue uniforms — a sea that bursts into waves of smiles, cheers and whistles when four young women arrive and stand onstage in front of them. The women are not part of a visiting pop band. Rather, Cecile, Beni, Christine and Gloriose are writers and radio presenters from Ni Nyampinga, a quarterly magazine and weekly radio show created by young women in the capital, Kigali. “We are like superstars!” exclaims 24-year-old Gloriose Isugi. The magazine and radio show are created by different teams that share a mission of promoting a positive identity among Rwandan girls. The name Ni Nyampinga means, “the girl who is beautiful inside and out and who makes good decisions.” The live half-hour radio show is broadcast on eight stations across the country and covers health, education and financial literacy, all delivered in a lively, peer-to-peer style. Presenters Cecile and Beni joke with listeners, playing music from some of the country’s biggest stars, such as singer Knowless and rapper King James, alongside pre-recorded interviews with inspirational girls. It’s Ni Nyampinga’s belief that by providing positive role models, starting conversations and providing information, they can help ensure that girls graduate from junior secondary school and — more ambitiously — help prevent them from ending up in a low-income poverty trap. The quarterly magazine is a largeformat publication, resplendent in reds, yellows and vibrant graphic prints, and designed to be read over two laps. Recent stories include a feature about girls who have successfully saved money, a piece de-

tailing strategies for acing exams, a profile of a 109-year-old mentor, and informative articles on reproductive health. Ni Nyampinga is now the biggest publication in the country, printing 90,000 copies. It has even had direct, concrete impact: One girl in the southern province contacted the magazine to say she’d installed electricity in her parents’ house after reading about another girl who’d done the same. The project is run by Girl Hub, an organization funded by Nike Foundation and the U.K.’s Department for International Development with a mission to “stop poverty before it starts.” When the magazine launched in 2011, no distribution network existed. So the Girl Hub staff invented one, building a network of female ambassadors in each of Rwanda’s 30 districts. Each of the ambassadors holds a distribution assembly when a new issue is published, ensuring that the magazine goes to girls directly and also helping to foster a sense of community.

As a result of the magazine and radio show’s influence, Rwandan girls are also creating clubs and peer support systems in their schools, explains Afrika Mukaneto, Girl Hub Rwanda’s editorial product manager. “We are helping girls create a social network.” Current contributors are ages 15 to 24 and come from a broad demographic: Some grew up with two parents, and others are orphans from the genocide; some attend school in rural areas, and others live in Kigali. They’re an impressive bunch, says Mukaneto, with discernible pride. One such contributor is Ritha Bumwe. After writing for the magazine for about a year, she now works as a news anchor on commercial television station TV10. “Before joining I was studying but jobless,” Ritha says. “Ni Nympinga has made my career a reality. It’s changed a lot for [other contributors] too. They were jobless, but now they earn money that helps them be self-reliant. Most of them pay their own school fees. And most impor-

Current projects span the U.K., Nigeria and Ethiopia, including a radio drama and talk show run by girls in Addis Ababa. It seems the world is also

taking notice: In 2013, two Ni Nyampinga journalists attended the Women Deliver conference in Kuala Lumpar and were described by former U.S. First Lady Barbara Bush as “incredible leaders.” Mukaneto believes that Ni Nyampinga has relevance beyond Rwanda’s borders, “giving girls and young people a sense that they’re able to control their lives and plan for their future.” Back in the schoolyard, the students disperse in a hum of excited chatter.

alking through Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood is like making an unofficial pilgrimage to famed chef José Andrés’ restaurant empire. There’s Oyamel and Zatinya at the outskirts, serving up modern Mexican and Mediterranean mezze, respectively; then Jaleo — the Spanish tapas bar that first brought him acclaim — near the inner ring. And at the very center lies the jewel of Andrés’ culinary crown: Minibar. Inside the tiny restaurant, cooking is elevated from craft to art through clever concepts and innovative techniques. Take, for example, a simple dish like Fabes con almejas (beans with clams) that is transformed into anything but simple in Minibar’s scienceexperiment-filled-kitchen. Fabes con almejas is a traditional dish where Andrés grew up, in Asturias, Spain. Yet as with everything on the restaurant’s 25-plus-

course tasting menu, it’s served with a distinct “avant-garde” flair: The clams are encapsulated in edible shells made of their own liquid, and fava beans are pureed with garlic and onion before being formed into the traditional bean shape. The dish is created via “reverse spherification,” a technique well known in the world of avant-garde cooking, which seeks to transform common ingredients into culinary diamonds with the help of chemicals and gadgets. Andrés learned this haute cuisine firsthand while apprenticing under elBulli’s Ferran Adrià — considered one of the movement’s best — and then pioneered it himself in the United States.

Washington, D.C.’s Minibar elevates cooking from craft to art. |


But despite the many tools and tricks Andrés has up his sleeve, he insists that Minibar stresses taste, not technique. “There aren’t good or bad techniques,” he says, “only cooks who know what to do with them or not.” Andrés and his sous-chefs not only work the techniques masterfully, but they’re also on-stage performers. Twice a night (Tuesday through Saturday), 12 guests take a seat at one of two light-oak bartops and await their evening’s entertainment. In the center of the small, modern space is a pristine kitchenturned-theater, where apron-clad chefs lead patrons through a series of whimsical dishes — only a few bites each — that tease all five senses. There’s a faux bread made in a cottoncandy machine, giving it that characteristic light-as-air feel; a Parmesan egg with migas (traditionally leftover bread), featuring a “poached” quail-egg yolk surrounded by Parmesan-cheese-infused egg white; and bacon-ice-cream-filled apple meringues, shaped like little pigs. The full menu is only revealed to diners as a souvenir at the end of their tasting journey, so that the experience is truly one grand, unfolding surprise — and one that leaves patrons with “a big smile,” or so Andrés hopes.

Chef José Andrés provides the visionary direction for everything at Minibar, from the playful decor to the avant-garde dishes.

“Cooking has always taken itself too seriously,” he adds. “I want people to be relaxed, to have fun, to not be afraid of grabbing the wrong fork.” That lightheartedness is reflected in everything from the culinary concepts and playful interior design on down to how the checks are presented at the end of a meal: folded tightly and hidden in the center of a Russian nesting doll. And yet the luxury of a dinner here cannot be downplayed — the US$250 price tag makes sure of it, as does the air of exclusivity engendered by the hard-

to-come-by reservations. But as Andrés is quick to note, Minibar actually garners the least profit of all 14 restaurants in his empire, given the research-and-development dollars that are pumped into it. It’s his outlet to let his imagination run wild, a creative think tank from which the best ideas emerge before flowing over into his other restaurants. “It’s where we put our best people,” he says. “Here, we don’t look for the output to be money but pleasure, learning, satisfaction, enjoyment.” Even still, Andrés is one of the first to acknowledge that Minibar is a privileged place, providing such pleasure for “the very few.” And so, aware of the disparity between the experiences at his restaurants and the realities of life for the majority of the world’s people, he has become a passionate advocate for food and hunger issues. In 2010, he and his wife founded World Central Kitchen, an international nonprofit seeking sustainable solutions to end food insecurity and malnutrition. Life, he says, is not simply about enjoying the world, but also making it better. Perhaps it’s the drive to find a delicate balance between the two that, more than any flavor combination or creative vision, sets Andres apart as a chef and gives Minibar — his gastronomic gem — an extra bit of sparkle. may/june 2014

Art Galleries in Dubai BY M I K E D U N P HY

The United Arab Emirates’ transformation from desert into art oasis has been long in coming. Since the launch eight years ago of Art Dubai, a week-long annual festival, new galleries have been opening throughout the country, especially in Dubai, where the international spirit is strongest. Check out these favorites within the City of Gold.

MAJLIS GALLERY

Perhaps more than any other gallery, Majlis has ambience. Located inside a century-old wind tower house, which catches and recirculates cooler desert breezes, the gallery gives a taste of Dubai’s early history as a trading port. When a break is needed from the bronze sculptures, watercolors and photography in the five exhibition rooms, enjoy some water and a complimentary serving of dates under the henna tree in the central courtyard. It’s as refreshing as any of the work inside. themajlisgallery.com

Guillaume Cuiry opened this 20th-century art-furniture dealership in the burgeoning Al Quoz arts district in 2011. Part of his mission is to bridge the different perspectives of art and beauty in Western and Middle Eastern cultures. He does so with his impressive collection of work by designers such as Le Corbusier and Jean Royère, as well as an extensive library to help customers learn about the surrounding objects. galerie-nationale.com

ARTSPACE DUBAI

Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre — a key business hub and home to the NASDAQ Dubai stock exchange — this posh gallery benefits from a large pool of big spenders passing through. Happily, they invest a lot on canvases and calligraphy by contemporary Middle Eastern artists like Devrim Erbil and Mouneer Al Shaarani. artspacelondon.com 66

selamtamagazine.com

XVA GALLERY

Although this gallery is also located in the Dubai International Financial Centre, it prefers a more strippeddown approach, with bare concrete floors and no-frills, white spot lighting. The energy of the space, however, remains highly charged, as the owner works to manifest the gusto of the gallery’s name (meaning position, velocity and acceleration in physics) in its collection of photography and pop art. xvagallery.com

GALLERY ISABELLE VAN DEN EYNDE

Arising from the owner’s zeal to provide a platform for free expression, the gallery offers restricted regional artists an international stage to call home. Many of the exhibitions hosted here present a provocative yet subtle edge in style and subject matter, often lightly brushing sensitive topics like politics and religion. ivde.net

Every Day Is for the Thief BY T R I CIA WO M B E L L

For a select tier of authors, the mere mention of a new work can create an instant literary buzz. Teju Cole is on that list. ¶ The 38-year-old U.S.based author, who spent his formative years in Nigeria, has published two books, for which he is widely regarded as one of the most innovative writers of his generation: Every Day Is for the Thief (2007) and Open City (2011). The announcement that Faber in the U.K. and Random House in the U.S. would republish Every Day Is for the Thief was heralded with anticipation throughout the literary worlds of both countries. Original copies of the book remain difficult to find. 68

selamtamagazine.com

The slim, 128-page novella is a delicate but powerful homage to Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, told through the voice of one of its own. The story has a documentary vibe, as Cole describes the city through a series of observations and conversations with family, friends and locals. The narrator is not quite the author, but very similar. After more than a decade in America, he contemplates his hometown through the eyes of someone who is now less comfortable with the everyday angsts of the contemporary metropolis. Every Day Is for the Thief gives a vibrant sense of this major world city, but it is no glossy travel guide. This is a “warts and all” companion, a TripAdvisor review written by someone who cares about the place. There are rip-offs at the petrol pumps and massive traffic congestion, hapless museum staff and corrupt officials. Because of the failing infrastructure, the electricity also comes and goes for hours on end. At first the narrator finds the power cuts almost romantic. But as each property is required to have its own generator — providing an irritating soundtrack to the city — the peace needed to write or just think begins to elude him. And yet you can still feel the power of a city that delights, as this is where family and a deep connectedness exist. At one point, the narrator comes across a music school for young children — providing an opportunity to nurture the love of music that did not exist when he lived in the country. It’s an opportunity that he believes heralds a hopeful future. Cole writes so tautly that you have to constantly remind yourself that this is fiction, albeit based on a healthy dose of reality. If Lagos has not been on your list of places to visit, this brilliant, compelling description of it will make you think again.
