Went to mail my daughter a birthday gift that weighs less than 3 pounds. Postal cost a little more than $50. Yikes. Is there a good source in Addis where I can shop online for gifts and other items and have it delivered locally for much less? She loves yoga and exercise paraphernalia.
We're traveling from the US to Nairobi, and in order to avoid a 2:30 am arrival in Nairobi, I'm considering a 15-hour layover in Addis Ababa, hoping to get a fairly normal night's sleep, which would begin about 7 pm. Is it worth the hassle? Do I have to get a visa for that short stay? Is there a hotel within the international transit area so we can avoid immigration and visas?
Due to lack of time I want to visit Omo valley and its tribes with a local tour operator. Because of an internet research and LP-listings I got dozens of addresses, but most of them ignore requests via e-mail.
Do you think, booking in advance is necessary? Or will I get tour packages right after arriving in Addis Abeba? Is it even cheaper to book on-site? How flexible are they? Do they need preparatory time?

On our way home from the Seychelles to Sweden we are having a 5 hours transit Monday 2/3 from 7.40 p.m. to 00.40 a.m. in Addis Abeba. Is it even worth considering leaving the airport and take a taxi to town? For seeing a sight or two at night and a stroll in the city, maybe a quick meal. If yes; where should we go? We like architecture, and would like to feel the city's pulse. Strolling around outside with our cameras is prefered.
We are both females and one is holding a Norwegian passport, the other one a Swedish passport, so we can get visas on arrival at the airport. Is the visa on arrival service slow?
Please notice the question regards the evening/night, so going to the nation museum etc is not an option.

I received 2 days confirmation notice to go to Ethiopia (Addis Ababa) on business trip. I am taking the place of a someone who could not go. My stay is only 3 days. I leave in 2 days, should I make a rush appointment for immunization or does the short time there reduces my chance? . I read that immunization shots should be done 2-6 weeks before the trip. So wouldn't it be ineffective any way if I do? Please advise. Thank you
FYI- I will be a major hotel, and will only eat the food provided there and at the business event.
I am planning to backpack in Ethiopia sometime this November with my fiance. Please give me any details that would help me. Expenses. Food. Warnings. Places to visit. How many days would be required to cover several places of interest in Ethiopia. Do I need to take the help of a local travel agency. Last year we backpacked through central and Southern Sri Lanka for 11 days without the help of any travel agency. Is this possible in Ethiopia? Please give me some information on the above and any additional information would be really helpful.
