NEXT LEVEL TEAM ETHIOPIA went on an adventure to various historical sites around and about Addis Ababa today--mad love to MYGUZO TOURS and the beautiful people of such an amazing land!!! Wow... First stop MOUNT ENTOTO! It was on top of this mountain that Empress Taitu, wife of Emperor Menilek II gave Addis Ababa it's name-- which means "New Flower" in the African language of Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. Of course, we had to drop some Hip Hop on the scene!!! ( @bboyelnino and the squad got it in! 👉slide right... ) #Ethiopia #MountEntoto #Herstory #AddisAbaba #hiphopdance 🇪🇹 * * * Photos by: @thesoulstudieux & @vballentine99 (with the "portrait mode headshots of the team )📷🌍🎶 @1boogbrown @bikkinirch @skemerichards @bboyelnino @next_level_usa @meridianintl @exchangeourworld

Emperor Menelik II resided and built his palace on Mount Entoto, where he founded Addis Ababa. Entoto is regarded as a sacred mountain and has many monasteries built upon it, including Saint Raguel and Saint Mary. The churches are absolute magnificence. ⛪️ ⛰

Highlights (rambles & rants ) from "The 24 Hour Layover in Addis Ababa... Stopping to Smell the Roses... " "I was dreaming when I wrote this forgive me if it goes astray..." Prince - 1999 After my trip to Tanzania to visit the Serengeti and Zanzibar, I had an extended layover in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which is also a place that I have always wanted to visit. •The Airline put me up for the evening, I was the first one on the shuttle and then an entourage of 32 Brazilian singers and dancers boarded the 15 passenger van. Yes, you read that correctly. Arrived at the hotel and no room for me. So, they sent me to a sister property that was a no go. 😳😂 So I ended up back at the first property, who now had a room for me (winning ). •In the hotel lobby, there were two sisters that had a boutique that sold clothing, sundries, etc... Yeah, I was buying all types of clothes, gifts, etc., but they didn't take credit cards so I had to go on an adventure to four different ATM'S to find one that worked. Yes, I committed to the process and the purchase... #nevertrustabigbutandasmile 😁 -- •Derje, the taxi driver and tour guide extraordinaire, took me around Addis and showed me the city.✅ -- •National Museum of Ethiopia with the fossils of Dinknesh, which means "you are marvelous" in Amharic (also referred to as Lucy ), and Selam.✅ -- •Seeing the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali ,Prime Minister of Ethiopia.✅ •Mount Entoto Tour with Sunset✅ -- •Roadside souvenirs.✅ -- •Entoto Maryam Church on the grounds of Menelik's Palace.✅ -- •Tour of Menelik's Palace given by the Museum Curator Hail Selassie Woldemichael( Great human being and very knowledgeable ).✅ -- •Traditional Ethiopian Coffee Service✅ Ultimately, the 24 hour layover was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I will definitely be going back! Dope Trip, very cool and Beautiful People! OHHHH!!! "U Street Parking" has the Addis Ababa Airport Parking on lock... Pict will be in the next post. . . . #melikamigena #addisababa #ethiopia #haileselassie #menelik #mountentoto #samsungnote9 #nikonphotography #nikon #djiosmopocket #ustreet #ustreetparking #dc #nyc #mia #berlin #losangeles #paris #habesha

Mount Entoto is the best viewpoint to enjoy the great scenery of Addis Ababa. Legend has it that it is from here that Emperor Menelik II and his wife Empress Taitu saw Addis Ababa for the first time and decided to make it the capital of the country. The mountain is densely covered by eucalyptus trees that were imported from Australia during the reign of Menelik II and mostly planted during Emperor Haile Selassie's reign. Thus, it is sometimes referred to as the "lung of Addis Ababa". It is not simply the scenery that makes the mountain an interesting attraction. The peak is also home to the Ethiopian Space Science Society and Entoto Maryam museum, from a small palace where the emperor resided as he built the capital. The museum houses a collection of religious items and ceremonial clothing from the Menelik era, including the rifle he used in the battle of Adwa, his crown, and even a mirror that was gifted by Queen Victoria to the Empress. Come to the motherland; for some nature and genuine Ethiopian way of life. Enjoy a day at the highest point in Addis. #Diasporahomecoming2020 @marylandmasshysteria . . . . . #Ethiopia #AddisAbaba #MountEntoto #HighestpointofAddis #Hiking #MinilikII #Museum #Mountain #Nature #Trekking #Adwa #Bestviewpoint #Diasporahomecoming2020 #DHC2020

Tack för påminnelsen @jenny_ranung 💛 Det är två år sedan jag fick följa med som yogalärare på denna upplevelseresa till Etiopien och Adis Abeba 🌿 Så mycket intryck, känslor och minnen som alltid kommer finns kvar. Jag är för evigt tacksam för detta och möjligheten att få inblick i Gatubarnorganisationens arbete. Så mycket hopp och kärlek ❤️ Efter intensiva dagar i staden så landade vi på en lodge på landsbygden vid en kratersjö. Swipa för att se yoga bland jättesköldpaddor 🐢🐢 så rofyllt att ha dem gåendes mellan yogamattorna 🐢 Vill du läsa mer om detta äventyr sök på Yoga Living Blogg och Etiopien 🙏🏼😘 #traveltoafrica #ethiopiandesign #ethiopia #gatubarnsorganisation #adisabeba #mountentoto #babogayalake #babogayalodge #yoga #africa #yogalife #yogamedjenny #yogaliving #tacksamhet

A heavy load. A number of women we passed in driving down from Mount Entoto to Addis had walked several miles up from the city to gather firewood in the hills, then carried loads of over a hundred pounds on their backs back down into the city to use as fuel. This is a trip they’d make every few days. #addis #addislife #addisababa #mountentoto #entoto #addisababaethiopia #firewood #backbreaking

Addis Ababa 📍 - 這輩子沒有想過會來的衣索比亞🇪🇹 也真的是讓我大開眼界 - 一個有七百萬人口的擁擠都市 在遠離塵囂後 可以是這麼的美麗 很感謝可以體驗到一個國家這樣不同的一面 - 座落在這樣的山頂 俯瞰這麼美的的景色 也難怪以前的國王會選擇Mount Entoto as a base for military operations . . . . #addisababa #ethiopia #mountentoto #touring #africa #eastafrica #humanorigins

Everything’s gone green in Entoto because of all of the rain. Walking these green dirt trails in these premature spring was such a treat to share with these incredible humans. We had so many new hikers! It felt AMAZING ❤️ It’ll be so special to create these relationships all around of us. #grouphike #addishiking #DestinationEthiopia #MountZuqualla #landoforigins   #Ethiopianhikers #Challenginghike #MountEntoto #YekaHill

An Ethiopian Orthodox priest displaying the Processional Cross. Christianity in #Ethiopia dates to the 1st Century AD, and this long tradition makes the country unique amongst sub-Saharan African nations. The majority of Ethiopians are Christians and specifically -for most of them- Ethiopian Orthodox. A specificity of that stream of Christianity is that priests intervene and perform exorcisms on behalf of those believed to be afflicted by demons. #MountEntoto #FacehunterEthiopia #Africa 🇪🇹 | watch my day in #AddisAbaba on Snapchat: MrFH

My last day in Addis has been a whirlwind! Went to the highest point in Addis... Mount Entoto! Amazing views! Also, saw the backbone of this place... a women’s work is never done I tell ya! Women walk up the mountain to collect firewood and hail it back down the mountain!😱 They start early in the am and home by 5pm. Also went to the old palace of Emperor Selassie that he donated to start Addis Ababa University to advance education! Definitely was a visionary... the Creator of the African Union as well.✊🏽 The old palace is part museum and a campus! cool ish! 🙌🏾 #AddisAbaba #Ethiopia #MountEntoto #EmperorSelassie #AddisAbabaUniversity #Africa #TravelAfrica

View from Mount Entoto. Every day lot of women walk this mount up and down carrying heavy wood on their backs. I was told that they earn around 1$ for all those kilometers of walking and carrying. 😱 It’s complete different what tourists see and what local people live there Addis Ababa.
