I'm pretty sure there's more Christians (atleast overall) than Muslims, i dont know where you got your info, maybe there's alot of conflicting reports, look it up.

I looked up and there is still unknown for sure the exact number because of the dynamics of an increasing number of new converts of all faiths. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)
Usually the figures are based on the CIA Factbook, which I would imagine is a pretty good source... but if you've got a better one... – cacahuate talk 22:20, 26 March 2007 (EDT)


Hmmmm... I found Meleke but there's also Mekele. Are the two the same place and one just mispelt? Please comment below if they are! -- Tim (writeme!) 09:24, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

I can't say with absolute certainty, but I think this is just a misspelling—Mekele is near the Afar Desert and I know of no Meleke. --Peterfitzgerald Talk 04:35, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
Good catch, Tim. It's my mistake. I started the Meleke article, but my intention was Mekele. I'll do a redirect in case others also transpose the 'k' and 'l'. WindHorse 07:36, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Mail section[edit]

Is the "Mail" section accurate? I have no recent first-hand experience sending mail to, or receiving mail in, Ethiopia. But unless the postal system has made vast improvements very recently, this section does not seem very accurate. Personal experience indicates that anything thicker or heavier than a letter is assumed to be something of value, and will be opened, and then kept or discarded. I would assume that something sent via USPS Express Mail might fare better. I can vouch that FedEx is reliable, but it is expensive and can take 5 days or more to send from the USA to Ethiopia. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 16:29, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

Taxation and duties on imports?[edit]

Any info on that?-- 22:58, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

Thank you, Government of Ethiopia[edit]

I just wanted to voice my profound gratitude to the government of Ethiopia in following Wikitravel regions policy to a tee: creating exactly nine regions, based on travel-relevant ethnic divisions. Very helpful! --Peter Talk 21:39, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

thank god somebody finally noticed that ethiopia is rich and powerful the last sentence is great

visas at land borders[edit]

The section "get in" starts with very unclear info regarding "EXTREME DIFFICULTY" in obtaining visas while crossing to the country by land! Any clarification would be much appreciated. 21:12, 17 February 2013 (EST)

Possible advertising?[edit]

This IP[[1]] made 3 edits all referencing the same business, semms like advertising? Someone more experienced than me should determine if it's ok or not. Just delete this section whenever it's determined if it's a problem or not.

I think I fixed this 2min before you wrote this note, but thanks anyway.
Incidentally, new posts go at the bottom, not at the top of discussion pages and you should sign and date them with 4 tildes. --Ttcf (talk) 04:21, 4 November 2014 (EST)
